    By the way, do you notice Asaka has the gun and diary and pen knife on the base of his Indy. Looks very nice.

    I did notice that, as I have tried it but I am not a fan of it, I put it in his bag to way it dawn a bit, I also put some tissue paper in there as well as to make it seem a lil bulkier

    Enz when you have some spare time would you be able to take a nice picture of this please? I would very much like to see how it looks.
    I think I might have a little go at re-styling my whip along the same lines as Asaka's when I move things around to accommodate my new plinths.

    No problem, I will takes pics as soon as I can, I love the way I have my whip positioned, it took me forever messing with it to get it just right, I still tend to fuss with it here and there trying to find the best viewing position for it, Asakas is great to it just wraps around Indy to much IMO.

    I wanted to get the whip looking like he really was in the midst of cracking it,

    Ironing out all the straight bits of the whip is essential if you are trying to get it looking like it flows and curves properly.
    I do like the way that CM designed the whip to give owners the scope to choose their preferred position.

    There is only 1 thing I would change on the Indy and that is his left hand, I dont like the way it is positioned, he looks dainty, IMO, it is a pain to work with that whip though, u iron out one kink and then u have to adjust another part, u adjust that and the other is back to where it was

    A closed fist for the left hand perhaps?

    Enzo's Indy pics below.
    Enz, did you have to mess about with the belt at all? I would like to get the gun belt looking like yours, as currently mine wraps around the waist perpendicular to the trouser belt - whereas yours runs more diagonal.

    Yes lots of messing around with the belt and the pants I finally found that the pants look best with the right side higher, gives the realism effect that his arm is actually up in the air, I believe the gun belt looks the best like this I have litterally tweaked every part of this maquette from top to bottom, even put some double sided tacky tape under the collar of his jacket that tends to ride up to clost to his face to keep it away and expose more of his face (which worked very btw). I even opened his shirt as much as I could to expose his chest to be more screen acurate any more and I would have to unbutton the shirt more and then the resin and silicon would be exposed and it doesnt look to hot that way

    That will be great Enz.
    I am impressed with the lengths you have gone to to tweak your Indy CM. Food for thought.

    Really all my Cm's for that matter, I am constantly in my collection room adjusting each maquette to find the perfect angles and hair and clothes positioning to make it look as natural as possible, I am also printing out pics from cm website and promo shots to match up to what I have done and what I can do, so far I am really happy with the way they all cam out, especially sparrow, I just love the way he looks when u perfect him

    Example Aragorn, he looks so much better angled to the side with his fac looking straight at you when viewed from the front, I also took his leather outfit and pulled it all the way to the back (the extra slack) and then put the belt on to keep the slack in the back and the cape covers it well, It makes for a much better presentationn otherwise his clothes look over sized to me,
    I also did this with Arnie as well, I pulled all the slack back on his jacked and clipped it with a paper clip, looks alot better to me as well.
    These little things that u can do to improve a maquette make a work of difference to me.

    After I get each Cm I literally spend hours upon hours making it to my liking, Of course not all at the same time, But maybe 15-20 minutes at a time

    That's all interesting stuff to note Enz, it is really fascinating the original ideas everyone comes up with to treat these pieces. Phil's "sticky tape" silicone dirt remover springs to mind!
