    Just stated to get this one under way, I have made some small mods to the bust, the bandolier strap has been turned to face the back, canteen strap has been modified so its away from the body and I have given him a bigger tash.
    The helmet is sat on his head for the photo and is not attached as yet.

    Wonderful piece of sculpting.... it promises much. ( can't help noticing that we seem lately to be enjoying a number of
    members painting their own avatars :) ).

    Another great bust I will be following.

    I too will be interested in how you approach khaki.

    I also fined that brit figures have more interest than meets the eye when paint starts to take place....

    I think

    The Strap has been reversed on the V Bust. and when this Bust is re released with new molds it will also be reversed.

    Thank you all for the comments not much done but just looking at eye colours and ear colour on tinternet.
    Face has been started in oil's, although the eyes are acrylic with some semi gloss varnish added. I will wait for the oil's to dry slightly then add the shade colour and go over the highlights again.

    More done the jacket has turned out yellow in the photos but it is lighter, honest.
    I have given him a mole on his cheek as well, bit different. Now on to the equipment.

    Terrific face ... a bit reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling.
