    Hi Jimbo

    Coming along nicely there ....like the anchor addition at the back

    Presume you've still putty to add to fill the 'ole on the left of anchor and tidy up top edges

    Look forward to the additional details on the arms

    ....and the cords for the fanion

    But we all look forward to seeing this painted ......after you've done the Texan of course

    Happy benchtime

    Thanks Kev, yep still a way to go with it, but the basis is all there now, cords to the fanion will be added in due course.

    This is my latest update for those who are interested in this 1/6 French Napoleonic Marine with my additions:
    The frill edging added to the fanion plus cords and tassels added,
    Arms now all cleaned up with added cuff details along with Chief Petty Officer rank markings on lower sleeve and two long service stripes added to upper left arm, now already for priming and undercoating at sometime in the near future when he gets to the top of the painting queue that's waiting for me me to crack on with.
    Cheers

    P.s. Once again Kev if you can please get the pics the right way up it would be greatly appreciated by me. image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg
