    Hello,

    I present you my last painted bust for 2015.
    It is the bust General Laurent Gouvion Saint-Cyr, sculpted by master Carl Reid and produced by Bonapartes Military Models:

    Difficult to do the metals, difficult to take good photos...

    Please tell me your comments.

    I wish you all and your family merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, with a lot of inspiration and pleausure in modelling/ painting for the new year.

    Thanks to all the manufacturers to bring out a lot of great figures and busts. Difficult times for them during this financial crises.
    (excuse me for the bad english)

    Ben
