There really is nothing to it mate. Just shape the hair to how you want it and hold in place with some Kirbys and then add a little spray to keep it all in place.

The neck strap is a nice touch and will come in handy 👍

First kit up . Just quick as it started to rain AGAIN .
So dressing issues lol
I know it needs alot of thinning . Trimming and a bit of shaping but im happy the bulk has been done .

Was advised by Jamie and paul smith that the grey on the legs was a bit low so ive adjusted one . One more to go
May go a inch or 2 further but looks alot better
Then can think about getting a hair cut and the toes attachedImageImageImageImageImageImage

Would definitely try another couple of inches if you can. The haircut will also thin him down a lot. Coming along really well though 👍

If you are anything like me then you will be constantly trimming and giving it several 'final cuts' ! Get it all done and cleared for episode 9 opening weekend mate

Looking good mate. Thinning has help a lot. Below the knee still could do with a bit more thinning but coming along really well.
