    Indiana Jones - "Cairo Series"- custom work

    My intention is to do a series of at least 4 figures in this project. Ive (obviously) been a huge Indy fan since childhood.. Raiders being the most influential film in regards to my interest in the series- and within that - the sequences in Cairo being my favorite.. Below are the first two completed works.

    The bases were custom built my me in my woodshop.. I actually took logs fro my firewood pile and milled them down myself, then mitered the corners to build the basic box. Ceramic tile from the local hardware store was then used as the groundwork.. A local trophy shop engraved the plates mounted to the face.

    They look really good. I particularly love your swordsman. Is the story true about that scene - that they wanted a big fight but Harrison was unwell so instead they just got him to shoot the guy? A hilarious scene anyway, and fitting for Indy. Great work.

    Yeah, the original scene called for a drawn out fight between them wherein Indy used his whip vs. the swordsman's sword.. Here's a great quote about it from an interview with Ford

    We were shooting in Tunisia, and the script had a scene in which I fight a swordsman, an expert swordsman, it was meant to be the ultimate duel between sword and whip. And I was suffering from dysentery, really, found it inconvenient to be out of my trailer for more than 10 minutes at a time. We'd done a brief rehearsal of the scene the night before we were meant to shoot it, and both Steve and I realized it would take 2 or 3 days to shoot this. And it was the last thing we were meant to shoot in Tunisia before we left to shoot in England. And the scene before this in the film included a whip fight against 5 bad guys that were trying to kidnap Marian, so I thought it was a bit redundant. I was puzzling how to get out of this 3 days of shooting, so when I got to set I proposed to Steven that we just shoot the son a bitch and Steve said "I was thinking that as well." So he drew his sword, the poor guy was a wonderful British stuntman who had practiced his sword skills for months in order to do this job, and was quite surprised by the idea that we would dispatch him in 5 minutes. But he flourished his sword, I pulled out my gun and shot him, and then we went back to England.

    Beautiful work! On both figures, and of course the bases too.
    I can't see a thing in this helmet.

    Very cool! What's your thinking with blood on the sword of the swordsman?
