    Hold you like this rarely-seen 54mm Elisena kit.
    Ensign standard bearer 1854 Alma.
    I'm 100% about the face but will live with it for now. Yes, that flag was a little bit on the fiddly side. But I have always maintained that if you're going to do a flag on a figure, you have to be prepared to spend as much time on the flat as the figure itself.
    Anyway, all comments are welcome and please excuse the photos

    It's not an easy job, painting a flag/standard that is an already moulded form around the figure. The skill required in realising the different lines and angles is something I have not yet mastered. You seem to have got it spot on(y) Great stuff.

    Excellent work on the flag, right down to readable lettering of the battle honours.

    Cheers,
