    Hi All, I'm new to Planet Figure Posts. Here are some images of my latest kit. It is the wonderful bust from aussie sculptor Forlorne Hope of a Chinditt. Painted in oils to represent a very worn out soldier. The only addition to the bust was the smoke on the cigarette. Hope you like
    Regrads,

    Welcome to Planet Figure Ben and congratulations on this superb bust, which won first place in the Busts category at WASMEX earlier this year.

    I have to say it looks much better in person. I hope you'll post more pics of your superb figures and create a Vbench.

    I was wondering why when i saw this bust it looked familiar. It was looking great at WASMEx before and still great now.

    Thanks for that John. Your box art inspired me to give it that little extra. I have seen a lot of your work over the years as well. Ben

    Really well done Ben. The look of sweat on his back, the dark sunken look to the eyes, all very convincing touches to give him a weary look. I bought this piece myself, it's a real beauty and you've definitely done it justice here.
