    Too bad. There were 2 other French officers of that time to do.
    They are also almost as famous as Bigeard.
    Colonel JEANPIERRE

    Colonel Hélie Denoix de Saint Marc

    Excellente suggestion Zastrow! Yes yes yes! Jeanpierre, Hélie Denoix de Saint-Marc, but also Langlais, and why not Faulques and Cabiro!
    But I just got the Rollet buste from Gilles Guiot and with this Bigeard bust coming up I'm happy for the rest of the year.
    Two small busts exist in 1/16 from Warriors, not terrible but not too bad either: Jeanpierre and Langlais

    Et par Saint-Michel, vive les paras!

    Hi Pavol,

    Since you are still working on the final details of the Bigeard bust, if possible, could you make these changes.
    a) The collar on the battle dress should be more like the attached pictures.
    b) The Colonel's bars, should be 3 bars a slight gap then 2 bars.
    c) The Parachute badge should be slightly lower on the pocket and more centered.
    d) The beret badge should be a little more defined.
    Please don't take that as negative comments. Just a thought on my part.
    Thanks again for a wonderful bust,
