I have tried to make this chap stand a little more upright, so I could better see his happy smiling face! This has meant that I have had to add a reasonable amount of greenstuff around his stomach. This also meant I needed to lengthen his rope braces so his pants dont fall down. Not too difficult, I just needed to be a bit careful.
A bit more around the seams and the addition of an extra plate (to hide his poor joint when I twisted him up) and he is mostly there. I choose to change the emblem at the top of the flag pole so that he will look a little different. I removed the fish thing and added a helmet/shield combination taken from the top of a warhammer empire knight figure.
I found tht the glag pole connection was very fragile and needed the addition of a very robust load of pinning.
