    Hi all here is the finished box art for the Mississippi inf bust. This was painted by our good friend Ernesto Reyes. We think he’s done a fantastic job on him.

    He’s available on our website on www.tfbminiatures.co.uk

    We would like to thank Greg Girault for doing such a great sculpting job on him.

    Wow, that's lifted it to another level.
    I'd be interested to see it in the flesh as I find it difficult to separate the artistry from the photo set up ie the shadows mainly.
    Excellent work

    Hi all thank you for the kind words on the Bust. It truly has taken it to another level. We don’t get the figure back we just get the photos .but it is up for sale from Ernesto for those that want a piece of his art.

    We do buy back the odd one for display but not this one. It’s a beautiful kit to put together. And from customers who have bought one they are enjoying painting him. They like the fact it’s different and the gray being a bit of a challenge..

    We as a team are so happy you enjoyed watching this come to life.
