    Victor, 17 year old kettle drummer for Dragoons of the Imperial Garde. Proud, confident, cocky.
    And with a body language and expression to show it!
    Designed, sculpted and painted by Mike.
    Cast in resin by YS of Athens.
    Stay tuned for the release...

    Thanks my friend! :)

    The scale is 1/16 scale, close to 100mm. In this case being a young man/boy he is slightly shorter making him close to 90mm

    Hi Mike,

    Right up my street with this piece, unusual subject for you but love the character which always accompanies your pieces, look forward to getting hold of it in the New Year,

    Best wishes for Xmas and continued success in 2022.......Keith

    Many thanks Keith! And I have to confess that I really love this kind of outfit!
    Being a drummer myself I had plenty of inspiration here! :)

    That's a lovely Sculpt, superb choice to do as well.

    I was a drummer myself in my Teens Mike so they feature quite well in my collection.....I think I am a better painter than I ever was drummer so that will tell you just how bad my drumming was.....LOL...but I spend hours on Youtube watching the old masters, Krupa, Morello, and the ultimate showman Buddy Rich........some of the modern guys are pretty good too...LOL

    Take care,....Keith

    Nice piece; interesting;ly just in the process of putting together the Masterclass Negro Kettledrummer; not the best for fit!

    Lovely subject choice - looking forward to this being available.

    Boxart: Also Mike Blank...:



    Why did you not sculpt him like this - IMHO it would be much better...:

    Dear Martin
    The official box art will be published very soon... please be patient!
    The black kettle drummer is a late 19th century idea, for this regiment there were two young white men and Victor Barre was one of them...
    But thanks for the color plates, great reference and inspiration for the uniforms!

    Great sculpt and very polite answer to rather unceremonious comments
