Very happy that i got the chance to work on a awesome sculpture, sculpted by Joe Bailey.
The limbs of the king kong are separated during molding, have to glue the limbs with epoxy glue for extra strong bonds.The gaps between the limbs and body are very obvious even some area lost the details of the fur, have to resculpt it with bondite epoxy putty.
Bondite is a local brand of hardware putty, but it can be use for scale modelling and sculpting work. I worked on the putty with my Deathscythe Inferno as well.
Here i repair the fur on the butt. Fill up the gaps between limbs and restore some fur texture. Here’s how i work on the putty, with the aid of sculpting tools. Here is photo before the painting.The figure is hand painted with vallejo acrylics, nice paint for figures and miniatures.
