Examples of two selected British WWII 8th Army figures in shorts before modifications.
Figures with shorts trimmed down and white glue trousers applied. Once white glue begins to harden shape with suitable folds and apply futher glue if necessary.
To get the right thick consistency, leave the white glue in a container with the top removed overnight.
Once the trousers have dried, paint basic uniform colour, drybrush, detail, varnish and base according to your preferences
