I know we're old and all , but that's Time-traveling Franz Liszt . Remember ? You named him ( back in my very first thread in 2013 ). You ask every time I use him for a scale reference LOL :D
He's from the 1/20 Tamiya Motorsports Team

I have to chuckle [noted the 'bove post - Ref "old"]... Old is sitting there and watching live, and a very grainy, jerky Blk/Wht images, as 'we' stepped out, on to the Lunar service... On of all things a TUBE television set [Philco, as I recall]. But, I digress... Looking forward to your builds completion. PS Head sets on and jamming down to A Parson's "Tales of Mystery and Imagination - Edgar Allan Poe"... Forgot how good Mr. O Wells voiced the narrative, too.

But did you ever have one of these , SSGT ?




A very very long way to go on these legs with the paint . Still in the splotchy paint phase -- many layers ahead . + the brass elements .

Maaan -- this is the hard way to do paint chipping effects .
But , some freak decided to use white lacquer primer to brighten the base coats . Mmmmmmm

I haven't posted any work in too long so I wanted to get some pix up since they're at least structurally complete .





Bell spurs cut from 1/4 mm brass
Styrene ' nutted studs ' from MENG :






Well , at least I'll have extra time for this thing all week .
Thanks ! COVID-19

Found this - www.rewindmuseum.com. This might provide some info. It does have some 'interesting' pieces of tech [state-of-the-art], from then. Have a great day -
PS
I thoroughly enjoy your 'builds', by the way, too.
