    Pavol, taking a close look I feel the Para Brevet is a little too elongated, it should be more 'compact', 'have more body', I don't know how to put it but the French brevet " the plaque à vélo" has a very distinct look. Please take a look at some photos of this brevet as there is still time to correct it. This is only a detail I know, but we paratroopers are a touchy lot!

    Général Bigeard, callsign "Bruno", was a larger than life character, a living legend. From soldat 2eme classe to army corps general, he became the most decorated soldier in the French Army and an example for a lot of subalterns, not only French, of how to lead paratroopers. A correct depiction in model form was long overdue, thanks to Pavol's sculpting talent we will have it at last . I hope it will be a great commercial succes as well and Grod you can put me down for one!
    Whatever bust or figure will be issued in the coming years, this one will be the pride of my display cabinet! Pavol and Gordon, you made my day, thanks a lot!

    Great sculpt, a long awaiting bust for one of the most famous post war French Officer !
    But Pierre, not the most decorated
    The most decorated is the Général Salan!

    Hot damn :) !

    I always hoped someone would do a figure/bust of Bigeared. Not only because he was a tough, highly decorated paratroop officer, but also because it would be cool to paint up a camouflage jacket covered with prizes.

    Beautiful sculpt Pavol, and I'm pleased that the jump wings will be corrected (y)!
