    Some of you may remember some time back I did the castle miniatures bust of a French revolution drummer with a scratch built drum and scratchbuilt tricolor for the back drop,i've been needing to go back to this bust as there was a couple of things I wasn't happy with.
    Since the last time I posted it I've added some scratchbuilt drum sticks to the cross belt and changed the color of the cords on the drum to match the French colours of red,white and blue.
    I've done some re-tweaking of the flesh tones and 5 o'clock shadow which i'm more happy with now.

    I just need to complete some more work on the drum cords and then i'll be finished,much happier with it now.

    The bust is available from Steve Kirtley @ SK miniatures and produced by castle miniatures.

    Oh my, . . . I am so envious. If I could only learn to do a
    "five 0'clock shadow" like that . Great. You have such
    a feel for applying the tones so subtly. What a gift.
