Those horns are looking great :)

 

One word of warning regarding Mr V's wings- mine got knocked off the table and the left wing snapped apart, horizontally, right across the bottom sail of the wing. I don't know if it was an issue with all of then or if I was just unlucky :(

 

That's bad, were you able to fix it? It must have broken at the thinner part of the wing, along the membrane I guess. It may be too thin to pin in this area but maybe you can still do it and hide the pins with green stuff. Usually, pewter tend to bend not to brake. If it felled straight on the tip of a wing I can easily imagine all the weight of the beast snapped the wing in an awful sound. Falling from that height is definitely a critical hit.

 

I managed to make some more progress on this big guy. I've placed a solid pin that goes through the wing protuberance and the dragon's body. I've carved some scales in green stuff. And, I worked on the horns so that they match the outline of the frill where they connect to the dragon's head.

I did some more extreme pinning last night and glued the left wing. This model is majestic, it's one of my favorite models. I can't wait to paint it.

Still working on Viridius today, I drilled holes in the base to have screws solidly secure the dragon when it will be painted. The screw end will be recessed in the wood plank and cemented with tow part epoxy glue.

Sadly, Mr V is still lying, broken and unfinished, in a storage box- I didn't have the requisite skills (or drills!) to fix him at that point :down:

 

Yours is looking awesome though, I love the interchangeable horns/antlers :lol:

@Kuroneko  That’s very unfortunate considering the value of those out of production models. Are you willing to post a picture? I would gladly help fix it if I can give you some advice.

 

Last night I added a first green stuff layer on the antlers. They now look like chicken paws.
