Punching out of my weight class - The start of an 18cm bust!

Giorgos Tsougkouzidis is an amazing sculptor out of Greece. I happened across his models and had to have one. For those interested you can find him here:

It took about 3 weeks for the package to arrive to the US. It was well packed and nothing was broken when it got here. The kit comes in three pieces which was quite the surprise for something this big. The mold lines and clean up were minimal as you will see in the pictures below. Just to put it into perspective there were less mold lines on this than your typical Privateer Press model, and about the same as a regular Space Marine! The casting is crisp and the detail is just astounding.

I spent about an hour getting the mold lines off and pinning the shoulder to the body. I had debated painting it separately but decided I'd rather work on the piece as a whole.

Up next is priming and getting some inks on this bad boy. This looks to be like a project that is going to take a lot of time, thank the Lord for airbrushes!

Here you can see that it's just three pieces

Even the inside of the mouth is detailed!

Just a bit of mold line on this one. 

Here is a good shot for scale. The model on the left is a standard 28mm model.

And here is is with the shoulder attached. You can see that it's balanced really well.
