    Hi guys,

    Here are the final pics of Naked Army's 1/6th scale bust of an Royal Australian Air Force helicopter crew from 9 Squadron in South Vietnam.

    This has been a great bust to paint and I highly recommend it.

    The bust will soon be available for sale on the Naked Army website www.na-int.com

    As tomorrow is ANZAC Day, this bust is my tribute to the men and women of the Australian and New Zealand Defence Forces.

    Superb painting Mate.
    This is a really well detailed sculpt and you have really done it justice. Some very fine brush strokes on this beauty.
    I saw a figure of the moon landing a while back painted by Mr J Cabos where he painted a lunar landscape on the visor.
    Just a thought Tony:D.
    Great work Mate very well done.
    All the best,

    Nice work, Tony. A great bust and superb paint job.
    I love all the small, fine details, like the mesh vest, zips etc.
