    This one is from Stormtrooper's and is a 1/9th scale Bust. This is my progress so far, the face is painted in oils but the rest in acrylic. From the references I have seen the lacing on the is black, buttons are silver. I am not as fast as some on here (Geoff) but this will take time as there is quite a bit of detail. so now to the photos and I hope you likey.

    Great start Bob. Waiting to see which regiment you choose. My wife gave me this one for my birthday, so I will be following closely.

    Hey Bob,

    Here is a picture of a Hussar Trumpet of the 8th Regiment, that might be a help to you.

    A great start with that face Bob.
    I think that he will be a right corker on completion.

    Thank you Graham, I wanted to portray a cold looking face and searched Google for frozen faces. I hope it came off.
