    Hi everyone, just finished painting this 120mm Modern British soldier. I have not painted a figure for a couple of years so I am a bit rusty, so go easy on me.

    Fantastic effort Rob. The sculpting on this figure is superb and your painting has reaaly brought out the details. For someonewho hasn't painted for so long, you've really done a great job.

    I can't wait to get stuck into my one.

    Excellent work Rob. I cut my teeth on yours and Dave Garret's figures, so sad on his early passing. Hardy

    Nice work on this one Rob, i think the second set of images show the cammo pattern more. I am itching to get a 1/16 modern brit sculpted and this has spured me on some.

    lovely figure mate.

    Many many thanks for all your very complimentory comments. I am so out of practice with painting it seemed that I did everything twice to get a satisfactory result. Its taken me as long to make as to paint so I will have to find a painter to help me produce future projects sitting on the workbench, so sorry Pete I have to turn you down!. I have a couple of sculptors also sculpting projects for me so I will be doing all the mundane things soon to get them into production. The business is, at present, reorganising and I hope to re-establish trade distributors to increase availability in other countries but the figure should be obtainable soon, awaiting metal components, direct from myself. Big thanks to Hardy for your kind comments remembering Dave who was such a massive influence to me. Anyway, I am starting to ramble now so I will sign off. Many thanks again,

    Rob.
