    Hi Guys,

    Also working on this Austrian Jaeger, 1866. The result of a recent post, many thanks to Roger (billyturnip) for the references. Still work to do, flap on the cartouche, water canteen, cock's feather plume, collar tabs, buttons, buckles on knapsack, etc, but hopefully getting there!

    Scale 1/9, all work in Milliput and Duro over a resin dolly.

    Thanks for looking,

    Steve(y)

    Good start look forward to seeing more on this especially the feathers

    Is this from an Osprey book ?

    Hello again, chaps - some more progress pics on this one - still some details to add, buttons, buckles, etc

    I have sculpted this all in one piece, but, if it were to be commercial, I would have to separate the hat/head along with the knapsack and cartouche and fill in some of the undercuts on the feathers. I would only do this if there was sufficient interest in the bust, otherwise, I will leave well alone! If anyone has a genuine interest in this as a cast, please PM me here and I will gauge support.

    Thanks for looking,

    Steve(y)

    Kev said he'd like three, so that makes six. That's enough interest to make it worthwhile casting some. :troll::D
