    The inspiration and the man who put up with my constant questions was PF's Marquismini ...a fountain of knowledge !

    Enjoyed the challenge of the conversion .

    Actually looks better in real life !

    I'm not a great painter or a great sculptor.

    But you're right. It's fun to transform the pieces.
    Maybe that's what I like about this hobby


    You did a good job
