    Simultaneously with the Light Car Patrol, I'm also doing two single figures. This is number 1 - an Australian of the 50th Inf Bn on the Western Front in 1917. In 1917, 50th IB participated in the battles of Messines in June and Polygon Wood in September.

    When complete, the soldier will almost be leaping at the unseen enemy, carrying his empty rifle in his left hand and a trench club in the right. I hope the WIP photos give you some idea of the furious action pose.

    Comments and critique welcome!

    I've made masters for Australian-manufactured field equipment and now waiting for castings to continue work on the figure.

    All the best,
    Dan

    Michael and Nap - Many thanks!!

    I've only done one bust - this Bavarian machine gunner which was painted by Dan Capuano. Unfortunately I've misplaced the photos of his beautifully painted work.

    If I were to do a second bust, what would interest you?

    All the best,
    Dan
