    I'd call it "Cobbers" which is old fashioned Aussie expression for "mates". To me the bust is all about the bond between the trooper and his mount.

    Hi Nap,

    Looking good mate. Just one small point. The Rising Sun badge fixed to the turned up edge of the slouch hat should probably be dulled down and look less metallic. The badges weren't solid brass but were anodised (dipped) in brass. The brass wore off pretty quickly exposing the dull, brown metal underneath.

    Kev I think that this is probably your best work to date (from what I've seen anyway). The horse's head in particular looks excellent. Looking forward to seeing it all finished. - Steve
