This kit could be assembled and primed in an afternoon: the casting is that good!
I have already assembled and filled the body. Before attaching the arms, I have elected to tweak the legs a bit. . . The
black trousers have double-forward pleats and tapered legs; however, the legs are quite "full" on the figure. Introducing a slight/moderate taper will reduce the stockiness of the pose and give the figure a better "line".
Other than that, a few touch-ups here-and-there (e.g., removal of the second button on the dinner jacket), and the figure will be ready for priming!
FOLLOW-UP 06.08.2017. . . The button has been removed.
I decided to essentially resculpt the legs--at little more work going-in that will yield handsome dividends. . .
FOLLOW-UP 07.08.2017. . . The right arm has been permanently attached.
