    Hi Ben ,

    Nice work particularly the weathering , this is a big bust I think almost crying out for legs (al la Jimbo!!) .....he looks cold and in total campaign mode ..and wondering if heis going to actually survive .

    How did the bust go together , any problems with any of the pieces , did you build it all or paint each piece separately first?

    Thanks for sharing

    Thanks Neil, Pedro, Steve, Marc, Mike, Keith, Mike C, Carl, debrito, Steve and Nap for your comments.

    Nap, the body, head and helmet are one piece in resin. The sadlecloth, left arm and part of the overcoat and hand are separate and in resin too. The plume on the helmet and the cord of the saddlecloth are white metal parts.
    The fitting is very good. The casting of all the parts are very nice too. For painting I glued together the arm with hand (part of overcoat), saddlecloth fitted as paiting is finished.
    It is a really big one, nearly 15 cm high.
    Paintingwork is all Humbrol oils. Matt varnished with Testor (excepted the metal work).
    Highly recommended!

    Excuse for my "bad" english...
