This Captain America statue was commission I received from a fellow at the WizardWorld Comicon in 2012.

His request: Bring an old, battered (and horribly painted) 17" tall Captain America statue back to life. Not an easy job, particularly since the statue required it to be stripped with acetone, extensively resculpted, and also needed a new base, paint job/sealant - all without the use of an airbrush.
