    Just thought I would post a couple of Work in progress pics of the 2 busts I am working on at the moment the first is the new Life Guard (2 words Martin .....Lol) from CGS and sculpted by David Grieve the second is The Coldstream Guard Bust from the London Pride range again sculpted by David and still I believe produced by Graham at CGS...sorry about the photo quality but they were taken on my iPad so may not be very good....and a big Thanks to Martin Talbony for all the help given on another thread regarding the Headgear.....have to stress these are both Wip’s and there’s will be more pics as they progress....hope you like them...Martin..... 198E3344-AE67-4337-812E-64C7D54D6772.jpeg 6CF67356-3753-4479-AE1F-90DAD3722DB7.jpeg 25660877-F862-40CD-9AAD-FC45EA9A03D5.jpeg

    The sculpted detail on the helmet is fantastic and everything you would expect and more from David it’s all there and really lends itself to shades and dry brushing highlights this is the first part of that process

    Hi Kevin,

    Very nice work indeed. The two new Household Cavalry busts are definitely on my wish list.
