    Great painting Francis. I've seen this recently in a show gallery online. I thought it was very nice then and wondered who painted it.... now I know. Which show did I see it at?

    Roger.

    PS I hope it was the same one, It'll be very embarrassing if it was a different figure. :eek:

    Hello Francis,
    I saw this at our show in Antwerp. It is more stunning in reality then on the pictures.
    First i thought it was a new one from JMD (as i told you then). Maybe you can talk with Michel to let JeanMarie do the casting for this awesome figure.:D

    Wonderful figure, lots of character a real soldier in my eyes and the paintwork is superb. I would love to see this figure become commercial, we can only hope it does.
