    Hi John, Looking incredible each time you do a bit more. This is going to be stunning when you have finished - a classic for the rest of us to aspire too.
    Your conversion/scratch build is fantastic but for me begs the question why are there so few British/allied mounted figures ready available from this period as I'm sure there is a market for them - the French seem pretty well covered by Metal Modeles etc.
    Cheers

    I know what you mean with the lack of British and Allied figures as appose to the French of this period. I agree with your comment on being a market out there for them.(y)

    I have only one major complaint regarding this superb figure. It should be available commercially in 120mm!!!
