Bandaged Boris.

The subject of Mummy bandages came up on the Quatre Bras thread. I didn't want to hijack Chris's thread so I'll post this here:

For Mummy bandages I use dental floss. I dip strips in boiled water to melt the wax off first to allow for painting. I think this will work for cross belts and such too, I used it for the wrist strap on Major Henry Percy's purple handkerchief purse, and the satin matt enamel paint has stayed on.

Credit where it's due; the idea for turning this rather strange figure into a Mummy was born entirely from seeing Fred G's Zombie.

I suppose dental floss could even be fashioned into a decent 1/72 scale rifle strap...

We should have had a thread just for that weird Revell figure. We'd see how many ways it could be used :-D

If we collected them all together we'd probably have a bag of Swedish puppy food. :mrgreen:
