Sir Thomas Wentworth

Sir Thomas Wentworth, 1st Earl of Strafford, 1593 - 1641. This is a 1/10 scale resin bust sculpted by Aaron Brown and produced by Michael Miniatures. Casting and fit is superb with minimal cleanup. Not many parts to this kit however. He had a unique Black armor which required me to use my airbrush for something other than Dullcote. I used Testors Gloss Black then applied a thin coat of Dullcote in the recesses of the armor to create some depth. I then applied several coats of Future floor wax to areas of the armor for a higher gloss finish. Hinges and rivets are printers inks mixed with Liquin.
