    Hy guys,

    here is my latest figure (54mm), I have made it for an austrian collector and it's a Hungarian miner standard bearer from the late 18th Century. His uniform is a special miner ceremonial dress, what was used to 19th Century in the miner-towns (they are now in Slovakia). On the flag is the Habsburg eagle with the Hungarian shild, and on the other side is the arms of the town Rozsnyó (now is Rožňava, you can see it: The original flag is in the Museum of Rožňava. I make this figure after an original sculptur from the 18th Century, what you can see here:
    Now come the painting, I must be fast with it.
    Thank's for comments.
