    Hello dear friends,

    I show you my last finished bust. It is the 200mm bust French Cuirassier, produced by CGS Military Figures.
    The metal was difficult to do. I hope you like it.
    please tell me your comments.

    For me it's the very first time I see this great bust painteted. Perfect work & thanks for sharing! What kind of colours were used for the metal parts?

    Nice work! I like this dynamic bust. If I may offer some constructive criticism, the barrel of the rifle is upside down. The front sight post should be on top of the barrel rather than on the underside.

    Superb Ben, lovely as always
    The barrel is correct :), at least to several references although there are variations. The piece below the barrel is not the sight, but I have seen some on top and some without.
    The osprey book confirms with line drawings the piece depicted, here are a couple of others. The last pic is a different shorter barrel version but shows the same at the end of barrel
    Best wishes

    Fantastic job this is a lovely sculpt and you've done it proud maybe a tiny bit of a wash on the metals as they look a bit too shiny but that might be the light ? Re the carbine is it a bayonet lug rather than a sight ? Not my period so it's just a guess

    Looks like my comment was a bit hasty on this one. After some research, it looks like the weapon appears as it should. I think the thing on the underside of the barrel is actually a lug for the bayonet. My apologies . . .
