    I think he is saying

    I'll position it where the sun dont shine"

    This is looking superb! I only met him once, at a dinner night at the HAC a few years back. A deeply scary individual, and this is truly doing him justice!

    What colours did you use for the gold lace and the sword by the way? I've always been lazy and just used metallic paint but it doesn't really look right.

    Looks like you're getting the better of Messrs. Murphy and Sod.
    This is going to be a very eye-catching piece when you've finished Kevin.

    Cheers,

    Nap,

    Coming late to this one but this is looking really nice. I thought at first you had the timeframe wrong in knocking him down to 6 medals but keeping the "enhanced" rank badge but I think it still works. Great work!
