    Hello,

    Some of you may have seen my "1:1 TFA Captain America Display" thread in the "Replica Costume" portion of the RPF. In that thread I mentioned that Fettster was going to start work on a Chris Evan's bust made to fit my TFA Cap Helmet.

    He sent me his first progress pics this week and said it was ok that I post them up on here.

    great start . he's got all the forms in their and it's easy to see him already
    gonna be nice to see this finished with the helmet on

    are you having the finish in silicone or resin

    I can't afford silicone :(

    so it will be in resin.

    after seeing his trans resin paint job on the 2 face I'me sure your gonna be more than happy with the finish , it was just as convincing as silicone ;)

    I agree this is looking awesome already, Rich is extremely talented he will make this look perfect. And the trans resin IMO looks better than the silicone, looks almost like a wax sculpt. :thumbsup

    Wasn't sure I was seeing him at first but I can surely see the likeness now. :thumbsup

    Cheers guys.

    Kev, I know what you mean, I knew he was in there but it was hidden by something. Turns out the head needed a little more height, the lip form needed tightening and the flesh around the eyes softened.

    It didn't help that I set the eyes in the clay cross-eyed so that was throwing it off.:facepalm I think that when it's cast, painted with brows and has some eyes installed, it will really shine through

    Thats definitely a strong likeness. When I read what you said about the eyes and looked back at the photos it just popped out of the screen. Once the eyes are set right in the final piece I think this is going to look fantastic! Love the work around the mouth, looks like it could open at any moment :thumbsup

    Always a big fan of Fettster's work and this is another one he knocked out of the park. Congrats and I look forward to seeing the completed display.

    Thanks, I think it will.

    I just need to figure out how to mount it. I have never done that before.

    Does anyone have experience mounting the bust to a mannequin?

    I could use some advice

    Thanks. I'll take more shots in a week or so when my friend with a good camera comes to town.

    I'll make sure to get some shots without a helmet on. Hopefully my Finhead helmet will be here soon and I can get it fully complete and get those shots up too.

    It would be nice to have this one 100% finished being as I am still finishing my Thor build and will be starting an Ironman Mark 1 to go with my Mark 3 in less than 2 weeks.
