I carefully cut round the head of SA001 and popped it onto the body of SA002 to give that gritty Bond 'in the alley' and looking for trouble vibe, replicating the imagery of the movie posters.
His first sidekick is going to be the gun-toting ZH003 pony-tailed beauty who has a Denise Richards' Christmas Jones thing going on (at least in my head).
I'm going to have to throw another order to Matt at The Scene as SA003 and SA005, again with the appropriate headswop, makes a good Bond 'in the Casino'. Looking at SA005, with a trenchcoat, would be a Harry Palmer (or Vic Reeves) stand in or with a headswop and painted with a white dinner jacket - Sean Connery.
The great thing about doing the headswops is that if you are just as careful removing the head on the host body, repositioning it on the donor figure can give the original miniature a whole new aspect.
I really enjoy doing these headswops and that's what it's about. So I'm afraid you'll have to bear with me whilst I run with this fun side project.
FYI, I checked the GZG separate heads against The Authorities range and found that they match perfectly. Making an even greater range of individual agents/contacts and scumbags possible. I'm thinking now that I should order a few more 'suits' from The Scene in order to turn them into Deckard/CyberPunk/Blue Hands guys.
Hopefully some photos tomorrow, IF, I feel that I've mastered painting Brioni charcoal grey suits in 15mm. If not, you can see the WIP shots anyway.
I like the sound of the inside of your head!ReplyDelete
