Oi! Spaceman!

Donna Noble...

converted from the KissKissBangBang not-Pussy Galore from Artizan... helpful assistance from Andrew Rae on the hair... with the base figure I could have gone for the Partners In Crime pinstripe or the Sontaran Strategem outfit... I figured the pinstripe would be a bit much with the Doctor in it as well so it had to be the other one...

bit of a mixed bag on this one I reckon... not 100% happy with my g/s'ing (noticed little niggles when I was painting her) and I spent far too long doing and redoing her trousers (didn't help that the reference pics had been doctored and had the trousers either grey or beige) before I figured that would do... all in all, I like what I've done, but could be so much better - may start from scratch at some point, the base figure is fine, I just need to get better with the g/s...

needs varnishing and grass adding... but out of Dullcote til payday and the gloss would kill any pics... I may feel better about it after the Dullcote...

Looks great, the hand on the hip has just the right amount of attitude that we all love Donna Noble for.

I'm incredibly jealous of your Donna. I may have to swipe the idea.

Fantastic Conversion! How did you do the hair? Did you remove the previous hair completely and sculpted new hair, or did you just add green stuff to the existing hair?

the original hair was removed completely. generally I'd say you're better off removing some of the figure before adding g/s otherwise things get a bit too bulky.
