    Hi Guys ,

    Jimbo ,

    He is starting to come together now , just doing the lace work , blacked out the medals ready! ...going to revisit the uniform a bit after I have done the lace

    ...then it's "just" the aguilette , handy pandys, the weapon and then a little matter of the medals ...only a couple..lol

    Oh and then the base ..this is on the way this weekend thanks to Pete Watson from "Petes Bases"

    Ian,

    He looks a lot different now !the pics aren't great !

    Reckon it must happen to others but I get to a certain point in painting and it all seems to start go come rtogether quickly

    Thanks for looking in

    Cheers Paul ..feeling better ...relaxing ...smelling the resin

    Yesterday added some lace around the cuff , Jimbo added the cuffs in between hiding the biccies ! ...went for a blue cuff with black edging then the lacework ..., the blue adds a bit of colour rather than all red ....in some reference I have as well!

    Also pleased to say the base from PETE'S BASES ( Pete Watson) has arrived, together with nameplate ...cracking job and excellent service and quality

    ...better pics tommorow
