molasses Posted October 7, 2014 Share #1 Posted October 7, 2014 (edited) I don't know where else this should go but this seems to be the closest. I'm sure it will get moved if another forum is more appropriate. I mostly build small scale and miniature ship models at sea in bottles. They seemed naked without sailors at work on deck and aloft. So I set out to find an easy way to make them until I came across Lloyd McCaffery's technique in his book "Ships in Miniature". I used his materials and technique to make these five figures at 1/96 scale. They attracted some interest so I'm posting the information for others to use. Here's an article I put together from my build log for submission to the Database here and at ship bottling sites. Modeling Scale Figures for Ships in Bottles.pdf A little more information on the figures can be found in my Ogallala build log.
