An iconic character from mid 50’s British comic-books was Captain James Bigglesworth, better known as “Biggles”. Â As an aero ace and hero of two world wars he spent his time travelling the globeÂ from Afghanistan Â to the Amazon Â (hence the byline “Biggles goes…”) searching out “the baddies” – (an early “007” if you will) and it was always such a good adventure! Â Another 28mm metal character figure (by North Star I think) – enjoyable and fun to make and paint. Â Painted, varnished, based and ready to take on a new adventure on a dining room table! Cheers for now,
I’ve done a slight conversion to this Denizen figure to give it a little more life and at the same time represent Ayrton Senna from his time with Team Lotus. Â The original casting had the fireproof balaclava obscuring part of the face below the nose, so I’ve carved back the metal to reveal the full face. Â I’ve painted him up with Camel yellow – (slightly orange-yellow) and I used a nice set of decals from MSM creationÂ to complete the look.
