    Love these big beasts. 1/6th scale is my favourite. Superb painting. I think the eyes are outstanding.

    11months ago I made my way down from the US cemetery to the waters edge and back at Omaha with some difficulty.
    I had no-one shooting at me, and I only carried a camera and a bottle of water.

    That was humbling.

    Seeing this Superb piece I could hear the surf and smell the salt again.

    This brings a lot of sights and memories of a rewarding visti back, it is exactly how I imagine the guys to come ashore

    Thanks for making and sharing this with us.

    Hello Matt:
    I'm a little late chiming in on this lovely execution of a
    John Rosengrant figure. Living here in the American Heartland
    I've seen a number of castings from Rosengrant molds. And the
    sculpting is outstanding. What really makes this work for me
    is the way you have attached the figure to the base. It is thrusting
    forward. And there is an atmosphere of foreboding all over the place.
    Of course, Omaha Beach was a horrific nightmare. The first
    wave of American infantry had 96 percent casualties, according to
    Rick Atkinson in his Liberation triology; which I would highly recommend
    . The look on the face and the skillful way that you have painted the eyes,
    especially the eyes, just fill this presentation with dramatic tension, and a sense
    of "death in a second" in just a few more running steps forward toward the beach.
    Congratulations, Matt. We all know that since these kind of figures
    are larger scale, the painting has to be that much better. And you
    have achieved that, in spades. Kind regards, Miami Jayhawk
