1/8th Testors Samurai - WIP

Here he is with the basic colors on - prior to getting a Minwax stain.
No patterns have been applied to the clothing - possibly will add some after the staining.
The hands will go on after the staining - otherwise they'd get in the way.
The mon on the back are raised designs. Need to find a suitable helmet crest as the original one was used on another figure. I hope to use a steel blade from one of those cheap letter openers. Now I'll see if the Minwax is still good - haven't used it in a long time.
