Well, here we are. 17.5 hours from start to finish (not including the work on the base or drying times.) I'm very happy with him. He's a little larger than the original, but not by much. I'm actually very happy with how the base accents the grey, adding a little bit of color. All the maquettes I've done in the past have been painted the same 50% grey color as the sculpt. So I might make stained wood bases the norm from here on out.
