The figure is altered to look like Apollo 16 Lunar Module pilot Charlie Duke. I repositioned the legs and arms to match the photo by cutting at the joints, gluing the limbs back, and adding some Squadron putty. After sanding, I was able to paint with Testors Acryls and add other details, such as the geo-hammer, sample bag, and correct hose alignment. The lunar surface and boulder are made from Sculpey clay. I've made several of these little guys, and they are a hoot.”
