    That is looking great mate, the helmet looks spot on. Just out of interest what was the wee case on his back for?

    I presumed the other strap from the illustration may have served the purpose of holding the binoculars or water bottle? I thought the case added a little more instead of just a plain strap for the bottle you may not see.

    Now you've said that it looks sort of field glass shaped, it can't have been easy to get to them though. Thanks mate.

    Maybe a case (pardon the pun) of sliding it around a little for easier access?

    Looking really good now Chris

    Well done on this enjoyable watching this progress .

    If I nay I woukd move the Nino case down more and perhaps reduce the right arm as you look at him to just below the elbow

    Looking forward to seeing this painted and seeing your next project

    Should be moulded and cast before painting.

    Hi Nap,
    Thanks for the tips, but there's no stopping now that I've primed it and already doing the face. Being my first attempt at a bust, there was always going to be some hit and miss things. Overall it's definitely been a learning experience and hopefully onwards and upwards.
    Regards
    Chris.

    Hi Mike,
    I wish I could say yes, but unfortunately early days for me and would need to get my head around that stuff. Happy to do commission one offs though at this stage. Would be happy to throw this up for sale in the near future.
    Regards
    Chris.

    The head looked very good in the 'raw', but with the paint it's really come to life.
    Very well done with an excellent sculpt.

    Cheers.
