Hi Guys, Here are the first pics of my latest piece, a superb bust sculpted by Planet Figure's own Philippe Parison (URIBULL) depicting a French Paratrooper of the 1er BPC (2ème Bataillon de par) at Dien Bien Phu in Vietnam 1954. The face is largely finished, although still one or two final effects to add, and the upper torso is base coated in readiness for the application of the two colour camouflage pattern, known as "Tenue de Saut modèle 1947" (modified in 1952). It is unofficially known as "lizard pattern". The scene I am trying to capture with this bust is one of desperate anticipation - waiting for reinforcements from the air, or for evacuation as the enemy closes in around them. His face shows the exhaustion and the resilience of the tenacious men who fought in this famous defeat.
