    Great bust by Carl ,good start also.
    Little note ! check the fit of the crossbow as it can be a bit difficult to fit once the head is in place .

    Well on the way Les. Nice take on one of Carls great busts. It's amazing how many different and great interpretations there are of this Reiver.
    Like the dark look on yours.
    As Ron says watch for the fit of the xbow.
    Cheers

    Many thanks Keith, the pics are probably not the best, when finished I will get some better ones done.
