Four O'Clock Wake-Up!
I originally had him holding a tin cup instead of the lantern but the hand was just too fragile. Noticing that I had a spare kerosene lantern setting on the window ledge a quick amputation and a little bit of cloning fixed that problem. I would have liked that lantern a little larger but I think it will do. In posting the photos I noticed that I had forgotten to add the watch chain to his vest pocket which has now been corrected. I mounted him using the horseshoe base, something I haven't done in a while. If I go to the larger figures in the future I guess I'm going to have to switch the Clydesdale shoes!!
Anyway, he turned out pretty good and these Chuck Wagon Cooks are always popular so he'll probably be cooking for someone else's spread before to long. I also hope you like him and there are more photos in the Gallery. Comments welcome as always.
