    Hello my friends and happy new year to all of you and your families,
    this is my new project on the bench right now, a bust this time, my first real try on this kind of scale.
    I will represent a Confederate veteran soldier from the American civil war, the scale is 1/12 (I think that it is the 150mm, I am not sure).
    A very demanding scale and a real challenge for me, but I really enjoy it because I have big space to work and give the necessary details.
    Greetings,
    Christos.

    Looks excellent Christos, but I think the ear position is slightly off.

    He's looking excellent and I like this size for a bust almost better than 1/10.

    Thank you very much for the comments,
    Carl the problem was actually in his left ear, it was indeed a bit too back than right was so I cut it and place it in the right position.
    Here are some more pics of the progress. (y)

    Hi Christos,

    Great work and looks a lot better than my attempt at the same subject last year. I can't wait to see some paint on him.

    Re: CSA Soldier, oh Ma' Gosh. . . .

    Hello Christos:

    Oh gee, it must be such a sense of satisfaction, to have that kind of talent.

    I am so impressed with what you're doing with this figure. Yes, I agree that
    Carl Barton's comments re the ear position is on the mark, . . . and you've
    taken care of that.

    I think one of the reasons why this bust is so appealing, re the ACW, is the
    hat. . . and how you've bent the brim in such an interesting and appealing
    way.

    Haa haa. Obviously, you are a true artist, my friend. Your eye tells you just
    how to capture the essence of what the "Civil War Character" should
    look like.

    I stand in awe of people like you who can create a sculpted piece from
    scratch. . .

    Regards, The Miami Jayhawk
