    I'm a bit finger heavy but it's advisable anyway to pin !

    Think I used a 1mm drill

    Hi Kev! Great start on Col. Hawkins! I still have a couple of the bust available here in the U. S. Franco Carcione of masterclass.it/wp/ You may email quota33associazione@libero.it to order in Europe.

    Hi Nick

    I would certainly recommend this , classic subject and not too complicated

    Verbal Update ......finished all lace on jacket and vest , 90 % done on the shoulder cords ( that's what I liked specifically on the bust )

    The vest is only a basecolour at the moment and will be closer in co,our to the dark blue jacket

    Not going to add a sash !

    Looking at the Regt ......Captain Adolphe Libaire, Company E, won the Medal of Honor for his actions during the charge at Antietam. IMG_2527.PNG

    Couple of other interesting pictures as well IMG_2525.JPG IMG_2526.JPG
