    Hello Mr. Viking Bob

    Thank you Sir... Im very happy because you liked... This project when starts we have something in mind... Then after talk with a great friend Javier Anca, we made me a challenge... Do a figure inside a cockipt... After that we do our analysis, talk with my team, and they are finish a few days before Blondie... I ask them what they though, if it possible... And they in the beginning dont liked... A big challenge... No one do nothing like this... But my GOLD TEAM is the best... They are a great profissional team, and they are big friends to... I can wish better... And after we talk, they suggest do the full inside cockpit... I ask some friends, and the answer it was always the same... UAAAAAUUUUUUUUUU... So I told to myself... Hugo you have another challenge... And we are here, first part its done, and know lets do the 2nd part...

    A most stunning model Hugo. Nice pose, great likeness and drapery!

    I just wonder if his hand is not a tad too small? Not sure from these few pics, but if so I suppose it is easily changed, this being a digital sculpt.

    Cheers,
    Adrian

    A beautiful figure of one of my childhood heroes! You've captured the likeness perfectly.
    I might be tempted by the 75mm version, but wish he came in my favourite scale of 120mm (1/16)!
    Great work Hugo (y)

    Hugo,

    Hello my GOOD FRIEND ..catching up on things on PF ...this is looking really good , if it was a black and white photo you could be mistaken for the real man ...

    It might be an idea to relooked at the hand as Adrian says

    I am making room for the cockpit..!

    Awesome yet again from RP ...the listening company

    Well done to all involved

    Very nice figure of, Bader, but would love a rendition of the true hero of the Battle of Britain, Sir Keith Park. Done to this level of detail and finesse, I would buy one in every scale.

    Hi Hugo, it is as usual a lovely sculpt, but not quite Bader.. I don't know why, but to me there is something missing. Maybe it's the stance or perhaps it is just the feeling of the figure, or maybe it's just me but please look again at all the avaliable photos of this great man.
    Best wishes, Gary
    PS ever snce I first saw Reach for the Sky, bader has been my greatest hero.

    Sorry Kev, I don't know how but if you go to google and type in Douglas Bader images there are dozens of them, also several documentaries on you tube including the Douglas Bader episode of This is your Life.
    Regards, Gary.

    I believe the photo shows Bader on the wing of a hurricane, when he commanded 242 squadron [Canadian!]

    Hello Mr. Nick

    Thank you sir for your comment... Infortunally we will have this figure in 75mm, 1/32 and 1/48... Im so sorry dont have more scales... I hope we dont disappoint you Sir... We never did sculptures in the scales that you comment... But we will do a study, try to understand were we have to out some changes, to give the best figure to you and our friends... I just ask you some patience Sir, because we already have the calendar with all figures until the endo of the year... But I can garantee you, that we will see how this work, and if we have available to do it, we will do it...

    Once again, Im sorry Sir...

    Thank you.
    With best regasrds

    Hello my GOOD FRIEND Kevin

    I remenber some words that you told me some days ago... That we are in the good path, and its important to give little and strong steps... I think and believe that we are in the good way... Im very happy for this tremendous positive answer, and to telling the true, Im a little affraid... Ive people that are doing reserves of 1/9 Bust in cockpit... And I told people that isnt finish, and poeple make the reserve in the same way... There are one friend, that said something, that I was sensible to his words... I told him that we are finish the cockpit... and I prefer reserve the bust when Ive everthing done... and he answer me "(...) Hugo I want to do reserve in some way, because I know you kust produce the best of the best." I have a heavy weight in the shoulders... I can not disappoint this friend... I can not disappoint all of you that give strenght, give me support... I have to do everthing right... Its a big responsability... So Ive to do everthing alright... Ive my own work, and I work with persons... People come to me because they have health problems, and they trust in me, and believe that after cirurgery will be better... I have a big responsability in my hands every day... And RPmodels is my passion... Its like my baby... I know I feel a big responsability in my shoulders, like the responsability that I have in my work every day... I have people that believe they will feel better... Ive the family of the patient... Its a big responsability... But if in my professional live I can help people, in RPmodels, I will do the best that I can for people have a model that can enjoy and can homenage Mr. Douglas Bader, a men that fought against tirany and opression, and fight for a better world, where we can give an express our opinion and ideas...

    THANK YOU for everthing my friend...
    Big ugg and take care
