Here is a bust by Steven Scott of Private First Class William L. Hudson from the film Aliens played by the actor Bill Paxton. I had originally received the bust with just a half inch of the hair line and the back of the head complete. Basically bald. In August of 2016 I decided to study how to punch hair into these types of busts and started to hair the bust soon after. Sadly, on February 25, 2017, Bill Paxton passed away. I completed hairing the bust on March 11 of 2017. I was surprised after the haircut how nicely it turned out. I think Steve did a great job on the sculpt, and the stylist (Denise) gave a great haircut. I washed and styled the hair. It was quite easy. I think I will wash the Hicks bust hair and restyle that too as it has been many years. For me, it's turned into kind of a tribute bust of one of my favorite actors. It is also the first bust I have haired, but it wont be the last. The armor, mannequin, all of it, is a work in progress and is by no means complete. By the way, the armor is cast from molds of Crowe's actual screen used armor. Here is a link to that armor page
The front breast plate that says Crowe has been temporarily replaced by one with Hudson's artwork which was purchased from the UK for this display.
