This is my own little Hobbit (WIP) made up from Masterbox parts. The main body from a kid in MB's Eastern European civilians; bare feet from his older brother; head from MB Pin-Up girls set, with hair added; and a bit of Tamiya putty. The original arms will be replaced with new scratched ones.









Some more tweaking, and filing and sanding is necessary. I am trying to keep his appearance as close as possible to Tolkein's description of Hobbits. Even though I've used all 1/35 body parts, little Frodo will probably be closer to 1/24 scale figures, as his height corresponds to that scale.
Comments...suggestions?

That's a cool project. Very well done so far. Don't forget the hair on the feet

And now he's got his full arms - and hairy feet!







More sanding and filing when epoxy is set.

He's enjoying a bit of pipe-weed while considering "filling up the corners"!
