    Absolutely fantastic Rog.You have captured Plastiras prfectly.From his dark complexion to his austere and determined personality.The lovely painted evzone frames Yildirim(as he was known to the Turks, meaning thunder) very good.The minimal base with excellent representation of the vast desert of the interior of Anatolia where so much of the fighting took place,serves to bring the subject to life even futher.I also like the controlled and very well balanced weathering.Stunning work my friend!

    I don't think I've ever seen an Evzone bust but it's an interesting idea.

    Not only that Alan but the sculpting and casting is fantastic, the figures are are sent quickly, four days is about average from posting in Greece to me getting them in the UK.
