    This figure represents a bit of a milestone, as it is the first scratchbuilt one I've ever completed fully from wire to paint. I can't claim full completion yet, as I still have 4 other Jacobites to sculpt and of course the ground work, but this is a first step I have to admit to being quite happy with. I'm including a couple of older pictures just to illustrate the progress of the sculpt. Please do let me know if I'm on the right track and as always thanks for having a look.

    That's really cool. I can't imagine the satisfaction of scuplting your own original and then painting it. Really cool stuff, congrats on the completion of this one. Now just four more to go.

    Glenn,
    Very nicely done. You are a glutton for punishment doing 5 tartans(y)(y)(y)
    Nice selections of colours.

    Thanks Janne, you had me worried for a second, but I promise that's a legitimate Jacobite standard from the battle of Culloden.

    Hi Ken, this is a smallish 54 mm using the 1/32 scale hornet head sets. Thanks for your kind words.

    Thanks also Meehan, it is very satisfying to show something, and realize that it is unique. I will definitely do more sculpts once I get this one done.

    Thanks John, there are days where I wonder what I got myself into. The secret is to get inspired, which is easy when you live in Scotland. Especially so since I had the chance to walk the battlefield of Culloden over Easter holidays.

    Thanks also Michael, Alexandros and Chris, it was most generous of you both to comment, I'm glad you approve of my efforts so far.

    Well Glenn, you're a real modeller now- sculpting and painting your own unqiue figures. Congratulations on this first figure. You've captured the folds and creases in the tartan beautifully and the painting is first class.

    As a side note. Many scots have fought in the Swedish army over the years even having had own regiments. Most of them during the 30-years war in Germany.

    Many of them stayed in Sweden thus having for example Hamilton as the most comon noble last name.

    Cheers

    Thanks Marc, you are kind to say so, as always:)
    Cheers Tony, I do feel as though I have "jumped up" a level in the hobby. Now, if hornet or anyone else, ever releases a good line of head sets in 75mm....watch out!
    Hamiltons in Sweden?! Now that's something I haven't heard of Janne. I suppose that's what happens when landowners evict hundreds of thousands of tenant farmers from the land during the clearances of the 18th and early 19th century. Who knows, maybe I have Swedish relations?!
