    Hi everyone,

    When I saw bill horan's version of the following figure, I decided to enter the hobby.
    I bought it from LECIMIER in 2003 and never tried to paint it. Now it seems that it's time to give it a
    try...

    Wonderful painting of the face. What did you use for the bicorne's gold lace?

    The face and bicorn look great. Good start on the blue jacket.
