Wichita - Finished

Put the finishing color to this one yesterday and he turned out just great.  Especially, as his head had been collecting dust for the past couple of years.  I guess it proves the adage that you shouldn't rush into somethings.

With the base this one stands as 12" so it's makes a nice presentation.  I gave him a worn looking plaid shirt along with a faded neckerchief.  I even gave him a few freckles which you can see more clearly on a closeup in the Gallery.  If you want to know what Wichita actually sounds like here's  the link back to 1958 and the "Luke Slaughter of Tombstone" radio show. Luck Slaughter Radio Show

I think my presentation matches the voice just right.

There are a few more photos in the Gallery and I look forward to your comments.
