    Hi Everyone,

    This is my second ever bust, so i am improving. I was given this as a gift and after watching a very nice documentary on the history channel about the British Paras in Afghanistan I was inspired.

    Hope you like it (pics are not the best as always).

    Thanks

    Nicely done and great weathering on the gun.
    Cheers

    Great painting job Ant. He looks suitably dusty. This bust was originally sculpted by Maurice Corry. I have a few of these kits in stock should anyone be interested in having a bash.
    Great stuff

    I'll agree with John, The weapon looks well done. I like camo as well. What did you paint it with? I like patches but not a fan of the Brit Flag on the vest? Is it sculpted that way?

    Hey Mike,

    Thanks! I added all the patches on the sleeves and on the vest. After quite a bit of research I found that almost 75% of pictures have the paras wearing a british flag on their vest. The rest wear a smaller union jack on their left sleeve above the insignia of the16 Air Assault Brigade- the flag didnt turn out exactly how I wanted - i may rework it.

    The entire bust is painted with acrylics - I ama recent convert so I am still getting used to them.
