    I was commissioned to build a full head to toe Stage 5 Terminator 2 display.
    Just wanted to show off the progress. The head is the Planet Hollywood bust from Dblank.

    Pistons glued on and primed

    Started converting the mannequin torso to fit Arnold's head, however my client wanted to change the mannequin so I'm starting over with a new one.

    Added the wig and cut/styled it. I think I found my second calling as a hairdresser! LOL.

    Looking good. Great skin tones and the best wig on one of these T2 bust I've seen to date.

    Dude, seriously Steve these are getting rediculous! I have said it before and I'll say it again that your painting is awesome and I agree that your hair styling is spot on. It is as good as you get get without it being hand punched into silicon. Well done again!

    Does he have the patch of flesh missing from the back of his head?

    The skin tones and subtle details like the 5 o'clock shadow and veins in the temple are incredible!

    You should send a pic of one of your builds to Arnie - I bet he'd get a kick out of it!

    Skin tone looks just like flesh...good job. The veins, and 5 o'clock shadow are perfect. Can I ask you what colors you used for the skin?

    I mix my own paint for the skin. I use tube acrylics from Michaels art supply. Burnt Sienna, raw umber and white. I also use yellow and pink

    I started playing around with the extra mannequin torso I have, learning how to pad it . I think it still needs more. Also added the endo eye.

    Testing the waters with the torso, this is not the actual mannequin torso I'll be using, this is for testing how to build this thing. After I'm done with this project, I am going to make a Arnold Torso display with arms , jacket etc.

    Needs a bit of blood matting on the hair mate and some on the shirt and jacket. I am sure youre getting to it though lol AMAZING to see how your painting has just kept improving. I always thought this bust was a bit ordinary but you make it shine. Thanks for sharing.

    Best

    This new bust is amazing. No complaints there.

    Unfortunately that is Indian cow leather (Ebay). It is a different thickness and color. Also the proportions are all off. Are you sure you don't want to go with a cheap USA made leather jacket also from Ebay? They are much nicer to abuse and tear up :) Can always add a D pocket to any of the jackets. It's just robbing the bust some.

    FYI I should have material sewn by this weekend. Still looking for 1 grenade sling buckle.

    Coarse sand paper and a dremel tool. Just sand the heck out of it till you get the result you want. I use a pointy grinding bit for the bullet holes, has about the same diameter as a 9mm bullet.

    :) It's a pretty close jacket that I have here. When it's all beat up, it's really hard to tell any difference.

    Steve, that looks ridiculous cool! The skin tones, the veins, the shadow and the blood! It doesn't get better with a resin casting, you have outdone yourself!
