    Hi Folks

    Very much a WIP , lots of rework done including all the musket swivels , ramrod, added a feather to the cap , also too off the gorget and the bayonet, axe holder etc and resculpted them so you they now have no resin in fill .....a lot of work but its looking better .

    The Plan...Hah this will be funny ...is to finish it for Telford ...in Panic mode at the moment .

    All areas have been base coated on torso with some base colours being done on remaining pieces .

    Just a couple of really iffy pics

    Stay tuned

    Kevin, I had to do a double take on the third photo of the group..........I thought that it was the ghost of Mr Mott.
    Looking forward to the painting of that jacket with your own slant on that green.
    Enjoy Mate

    Hi Guys

    Haven't forgot this , now back on the bench ....have made a alteration or two ....

    Took the musket out of his hand

    Sculpted a smallish fighting knife .....now in place on hand

    Pinned the 2 musket parts together and filled in the parts missing ..will be detailing this up ....

    The weapon will be carried on his back ..

    Hope RP approve !

    Going to get or rather grovel and ask Jimbo to thin down the haversack strap as well ..which will now mean reworking texture and beading etc

    Stay tuned ...
