WORK-IN-PROGRESS
Proof of concept "Revenge of the Cybermen" Sarah Jane Smith made from a Primeval body.
Never been happy with the tiny paint bubbles.
Still have to clean up the hands and the neck, and smooth out the pants where possible. Maybe dull them a little, too.
Not sure how the head really works with the body. Maybe I'll try swapping it if I can find a different Sarah Jane head.

I don't know why but SJ's eyes look like she's smoked something in this picture, I think it might be the redness surrounding them :lol: Not an insult to you of course skiffle, what you've done looks like a good proof of concept. ;)

It does. If it went into production the hair might have to be tweaked to make the head look a little smaller, but with a factory paintjob that’d look good!

Yeah, the red around the eyes makes her look stoned. And the hair doesn't do much to make her look like "classic Sarah Jane." Not that classic SJ's hair was that far off, but there's something about the way it interacts with the face that throws it all just a bit off.

Side note on the paint, it actually looks fine on the shelf, it's just when you get this close that the lumps become noticeable.

I didn't even notice the imperfections on the factory-made face until I saw the photo this big.

Side question: Does anyone know if superfine sandpaper can be used to sand out paint lumps?

As long as you’re careful. Might need touching up afterwards. I presume that you sanded whatever you’re painting before starting?
