    Hi Guys,

    Some pics of my latest, "fit-in" project. On the back of Rob Lane's offer of sculpting a bust for PF members, I looked out these pics of something I would like to see. Probably quite niche, granted, but I decided to have a go at one myself and this is the result!

    Based solely on the attached pic, all work done in Miliput, Duro, plastic strip and fusewire., in 1/9 scale. Depicts a 1st Greek Light infantryman, under British command during the Napoleonic Wars.

    Thanks for looking in,

    Steve(y)

    Cheers Nap - if there is sufficient interest in this, I would consider getting a short run cast. On past projects, I would be looking at this retailing around £20 each. I would need to sell approx 10, to cover costs, as I cant really afford to have excess ones left over.(y)

    I like this Steve, the wire work is excellent. You have got your bust done much quicker than mine!

    Many thanks, Rob - that's the benefit of a two-week Easter break and having redecorated the kitchen in the first week to keep SWMBO off my case!!
