Harriet Tubman

This figure of Harriet Tubman is a kit-mash of a couple Master Box kits.

  1. Marshal Tom Tucker, Molly and Rebecca Hanson. MB35203
  2. Frau Müller. MB35166

A few finishing touches and she will be finished. Thank you for looking.

Very nice work — especially on the face and skin-tone! One minor critique: Her left leg looks a bit odd, as though it’s hyper-extended. I do realize, this is how MasterBox sometimes animates their figures. Just sayin…

Thanks for the compliment and comment.
Yes, it looks that way for now because it’s still on the ‘painting holder’. The torso and legs are from the Frau Müller kit. The figure will be more on her right toes and left heel. A walking stance.

Excellent kit bashing K. Great paintjob on the skin tone.

Thank you for the compliment and for checking out my build.

Ms. Tubman looks like she is ready to kick ass and take names!

Working on the pedestal this week. Ground-work is Celluclay and the two rocks are walk-path granite. The wet Celluclay looks like cold oatmeal right now.

While generally not my cup of tea, I do enjoy seeing these kinds of subjects. Historical, military (she’s holding a rifle) but not typically so. :+1: :+1:

Sorry but I just noticed Harriet is carrying a Winchester rifle which wasn’t available during the Civil War. The similar but correct Henry rifle is available in from ICM. Don’t bother with the weapons set as you get the full set (a pair of sprues) in the Confederate Infantry set and I understand the same is true for the Union infantry, so essentially you pay the same as for the weapons set an get the figures thrown in free! I went for the Confederates as (with the exception of the officer) they are an authentically nondescript bunch which can be adapted for use in other scenarios.
