    Dont know if its relevant but Ive just bought a kneeling chair to help my back. Ill let you know if it works.

    Sorry to hear of your woes Nap. Get well soon.

    Sorry to hear about the fall. Hope you are mending nicely - nothing a good pint won't help cure.

    Bust is looking great!

    Feel better Nap!

    Thanks for post unfortunately I can't read Russian !

    Appreciate your time

    I am not too good in English so this is approximate translation:
    "When I was a boy, I already knew how to determine who was a front-line soldier and who was a rat.
    The first did not wear their awards. They drank in silence on May 8 and 9.
    Rats went to schools with awards and talk about their exploits in the newspapers. Now you can rarely meet a real front-line soldier."

    ,Hi everyone

    Bit of a update

    Finally managed to get to the bench so after a long time and thoughts from Martin ( thank you ) I finished the slogans on the helmet ...quite pleased !!

    Reference pics as below

    I did my version with the "white" background not exactly both central which I like the look

    You will see I added a star ...might highlight that a bit more

    Still need to recheck , add the lifted clear edging ( thinking of finely cut sellotape ) weather helmet and paint straps etc

    Happy benchtime

    Thanks Martin

    The lettering took a "while" and has now got a covering of sellotape weathered at edges and the helmet is now fitted in place on the head .....and I never broke the hanging straps !

    .....just the fit of the hand to sort ! and then paint the newspaper details ....Daddy0 printed off copies like yours but I successfully failed to be able to fit to my satisfaction !

    Love the hobby

    Hi Guys

    Guess who can't sleep so a couple of iffy pics where I am at the moment

    Since taking these yesterday I have repainted the uniform to a hopefully slightly lighter contrast to the helmet

    Pics shoukd show hanging straps , helmet details including red star ( might highlight this slightly !)

    Pleased the hand has now been sorted to fit nicely and also painted/added download bits for the newspaper ...will look at that again once I can get to my bench .....bit early as my bench is in our bedroom !

    Will post more pics but providing all goes well ...it's just the hands to paint

    .....the next will have medals ...but only ribbons ! image.jpeg

    All comments welcome

    Happy benchtime
