Since the last update I created the two heads for the ATHENA ground crew.
As you can see they are heavily influenced by todays US carrier crews.
Taking some of your critisism and suggestions (Thanks Rougepom) I re-positioned most characters.
Eventhough all pieces are intended for the ATHENA, I will do this as a seperate display base.
This gives me some more room as well a bit more freedom for positioning the characters.
I think with this arrangement, every point of view offers a good aspect,
while no single item really blocking any other piece.
This new poitioning is now also more in line with the initial image I had in mind.
For this I used a hair dryer to warm the plastic tube and formed it to the way I needed it.
Then I cut the ends off again and attached them to the crew guy.
With this I can remove him for painting relativiely easy and then simply put him in place when I'm done.
Finally I attached the heads for those two.
Then it was a whole day of little, tiny details. Adding ammo pouches, sculpting belts and bands, the shoulder pads, and all kinds of little things.

- complete the highlighting
- inking with Azurement Blue
- light drybrush with a drak grey
- inking with Badab Black
and after that add the other colors, and then start weathering and chipping.
If you have any guidance on black vehicles or planes, I'd like to hear them.
So, I hope this rather large update wasn't a waste of time for you and you enjoyed it :)
