I've missed this as well. Glad I found it tho. Looks excellent and will really bring the scene to life. Will you be putting a driver in the car?

Wow, that's a great representation, Howard! Quite realistic! Love the skin tones and shading!

I couldn't agree more with Michael !! ...and I would ignore all those suggestions on how to do it differently, have nailed Chapman !! Figures are by far the toughest thing for me in modeling, are great at it !!! I wouldn't change a thing !!

I agree with everyone here that you have "constructed" a perfect lookalike of Chapman. Did you use somekind of putty to mold the jacket, sweater, tie aso.?
I also love the painting with all different colors, it brings it alive and very convinsing.
