Soviet Lieutenant, Red Army 1942

This was a 1/12 scale basic resin bust from Nocturna Model, with no clothes nor hair.  Green Stuff and Apoxie Scuplt putties were used to create the clothing, while viscose (a fiber material used in the doll making hobby/business) was used to make the hair.

Oh wow that's beautiful Jack! 

Fantastic job there on the sculpted uniform and cap. The hair material looks great. And finally you knocked the paint job right out of the park!!! 

 

I swear a certain German field marshal who used to post here would be offering to marry her if he were still around....Big Smile

The flesh colors look real. One might think it was a real face if they didn't see the bust features

Hello Wood, thanks for checking her out.

For the flesh, started out with an overall dark green, but this was the acrylic set:

The flesh tones and blending are very well done.  Does the viscose material work in other scales?

Really nice piece!

Thank you keavdog.

Scale wise, I think it could work with smaller figures, for replicating staight hair anyways - not sure how to curl this stuff.  The strands are definitely much finer then you normally find on sculpted figures.

Also need some proper glue -  I was using a craft glue that dries glossy and hence darkens the hair colour.  It was suggested to me afterwards to try Mod Podge Matte glue.

Here is also a video of how the hair is built up in strands, but there is also a simpler method some doll makers use where one huge tuft hair is utilized by creating a part down the middle.

Thanks Ti4019.

In those areas that could be reached, I would apply spots of watered down acrylics and dab them with a fingertip.

Jack '

 Got to say . This is way above my abilities in figures . I did two this year . One still looks like Joe Stalin and the other like a peeved Rommel .  Was she stationed in Riga ? She looks like a Soviet Officer I might've wanted to date .

Tanker-Builder, thanks for the comments.

Haven't really considered a setting for her other than 1942, as this was built for that GB of said year.  Her collar rank is the subdued type that was used up until 1943 when they were done away with and replaced with ranks on shoulder boards.

The photo that inspired this project was of a young woman that possibly was a medical officer in the Sevastopol area.

Oddly enough, there was also a recent movie from 2015 - Battle for Sevastopol, and the female lead has some resemblance?
