I have another friend that deserved a figure of his own, and he is a huge Lincoln fan. I had bought a couple of the wonderful Kumik head sculpts, so that part was easy. My main job was to modify the Battlegear clothing to match the photos he wanted me to model it after. The trousers were taken in at the inseam, which makes him look thinner and taller. The beautiful frock coat had pocket flaps sewn into the waist seam that didn't match the photo. Opening the seams was easy - re-sewing them with fat fingers was another thing. The buttons were re-positioned and another pair added, and the lapels were folded back as far as I dared, and the same with his vest. The hat came from ebay, and his head had to be ground down to make it fit. Lincoln wore a lower hat later on, but in these photos, it was pretty tall.
