    Good work Chris.
    The detail of the drum is nice, did you re-do the ropes?
    Cheers,

    Very well done.(y)
    Looking at the uniform, it might be a Grenadier or a Voltigeur of the Imperial Guard

    Hi Chris,

    Great work on our Franco-Prussian Drummer - he is turning out nicely! I'm guessing you picked this one up at the Long Island show?

    For others that may be interested, this is a future release for the spring. It's a 75mm and sculpted by Stephen Mallia. He did a fantastic job as the details are unbelievable. I had a few preproduction castings at the Long Island show and I still have some left which I will bring to MFCA (if it's not released by then).

    Keep up the great work Chris. I can't wait to see it finished.
    regards,
    Paul
