    Just finished this 200m bust of Cardigan. It's an old Mike French Tiny Troopers model which I've made a few modifications to, most notably a new face. The detail on Mike French's work is really good in my view even when compared to today's standard but I felt the facial features were a little bland and didn't really cut it. This was my first try at sculpting a face, so hats off to the full time sculptors out there, it's hard work!! Will be putting some practice in I think.

    Painting done in Jo Sonja's with metals in Scale 75.

    Bold step to change his face. I like it more than the original and it will certainly be a unique item in your collection. Just a touch if Trevor Howard going on there as well.
