    What to say, John?

    This one is well up to your usual high standard. I especially like the lettering on the backpack.

    Does this producer have a homepage and a retailer in Europe? Theres lot of character in this piece.

    Cheers

    Very very nice John. Sad to see the bust is not wearing a Hardee hat, the "trademark" of the Iron Brigade. the only other comment is that the trim on the color is too wide and is more like tape than a cord trim.

    PS, I like the regimental designation on the knapsack also.~Gary

    Hi John,

    I am from the UK, Manchester. I just had to make a comment on your painting skills. Simply FANTASTIC brilliant painting job. Can I ask what paints you use? What scale is the bust and where can I get it from? Would love to see more of your work.


    ***Sorry I just noticed in the text that you use acrylics*** I was so taken by your paint job - I didn't read the text.

    Kindest regards - have a nice day.

    Hi John,
    David told me to take a look at his latest bust and I can honestly say that you have done an excellent job painting it - well done :)
    I think the standard that David is producing is very good and I wouldnt mind doing this one myself.
    I assume you will be painting the figures he's working on when he has finished them ?
