I just finished this one a few days ago, so am getting caught up! (not really… so many projects I haven’t put on the site the past few years yet) This Yeti uses the 1/6 scale Ape Head that I sculpted and sell through my company: Industria Mechanika. I wanted him to have an almost Planet of the Apes feel, but more grounded perhaps in our own reality. Or whatever… it was just fun and looks interesting and that’s what matters most to me. 🙂
After painting the head, I applied a blend of crepe hair to the head. The body is a stock sixth-scale figure body I got on eBay with various accessories I picked up here and there. The snow-poles, rifle, picks, boots, shovel, and clips were all pre-fab items that I cleaned up, modified and repainted. The clothing was a pre-fab German WWII snow covering except for the “skirt” portion which I sewed up to match. I made the flags from the same material as the skirt, and the pole was made from wood, brass, and polystyrene. Overall, a fun and interesting project. I ended up using a lot of the same techniques I’d use for scale modeling on the cloth portions such as the mud which was nice. Anyway, here’s the pics.
