    Hi there Tarracus ,

    Thank you for the comment working on the facings and collar now .....

    Starting to come together ...it's a nice bust to have on the bench ...box art is helping!

    I like the brass but thought I would go for the black lacquered finish as both were seen worn

    Thanks for looking in

    You know I usually make a smart remark Kev?

    Well...........


    It looks real smart !

    A good strong face and you've got him looking a bit
    world weary as well. This is smashing mate I really like it.

    Offo's a bit good as well at this putty pushing isn't he.
    Well done Nap.
