I think you are doing a great job on the body, considering what you have to work with.
No new suggestion from me, I like what I have read so far. I ran out of the WD-40 for my brain. :D

Since it'll be very difficult to make a realistic representation of the original statue, and that it's primarily a display base for the head, how about cutting the mannequin torso in a classic 'V' shape as they did with sculpted busts?

Like this: http://www.reelcollectibles.co.nz/image ... e-bust.jpg

Be fairly easy to texture and colour it to match the head.

Just a thought.

That's a good idea for an exposed tabletop base. This one will be clothed.

As a funny note- your weblink got blocked by my work 'net filter as 'adult'...I guess they aren't aware there's more than one meaning for "bust". :lol:

This is prototype 1. Get a Firefly tee on it and not have too many unsightly seams, and I'll be happy for the moment.

Will check the link when I get home! (grin)

Getting frustrated- need to bang this thing out by tomorrow, so I just went the cheap and "cheesy" route and finished up the neckline with wire mesh, tape and a little paint.

I test fit the 'Troublemaker' tee shirt, and the collar covers up all the way to the statue neck in the front, with some of the painted area of my transition showing at the sides and rear.

Will post one last pic tomorrow- got it disassembled for a hard cure on the paint tonight. I know it's not anywhere near the level of awesomeness of the stuff you guys build on this board...

Thanks, guys!

Here's a quick photo of the almost finished product with the tee shirt on:
