    Hi guys

    Listen folks ....whilst having a little banter with Jimbo over the weekend ......all I said was....


    "Hey......MATE ...I've got a great idea ...fancy a swop for a bust you always wanted .........

    Then yesterday .went for a paint day and this was there ...he is a little putty pushing person


    A begging Crimean veteran ...my idea , medal mine ! ...all else Jimbo"s skill

    Just look at this face ...ragged uniform , buttons hanging off , bit of a WD blanket ....leaning for support on a crutch ......

    I " might" level his hand up and put some coins in the palm ....


    I certainly think this sort of thing is commercial and James did mention perhaps if enough interest he mght consider doing another similar thing ...in amongst my other ideas ......

    .......this is a one off .....because he likes me ...lol

    All suggestions for a title for the nameplate welcome as well as .....

    All comments !!

    Super idea Nap.
    Tens of years ago I saw this photo at the portrait gallery of this poor couple with his Waterloo Gong thinking this will make a great set piece.
    Looking forward to what comes next from the dynamic duo.
    Cheers

    This is a fellow re-enactor whom I've known for year's, he has gone into the Victorian side of the hobby called the Ragged victorians www. facebook.com/ragged victorians
    He(the bust) is looking very good.

    Kev....I misunderstood what you were bumping your gums about earlier today:LOL: The hand can be twisted round to accommodate the coins in the palm of the hand, but it will have to be cut of at the wrist, pinned & glued into place, would have to use a dremel and cutting wheel though to get through the copper wire....10 min job for me ....for you..4 x plasters for cuts to fingers plus possibly a trip to A&E ....Oh! and a new arm & hand to be sculpted :whistle:
    Cheers
