    Here’s my progress to date on General Colbert of the Red Lancers. This is a Carl Reid sculpt released by Bonaparte’s. I’ve added a few missing details to the czapka and the head is about 80% finished. Much left to do on this one. 8FC6FA40-B573-4CE5-A773-B19D933B1F6D.jpeg View attachment 420743 1AB9523F-A798-4D43-A19C-162A260BF181.jpeg 18D0A4FA-0AC4-4B64-B614-C7EC5DB5C90C.jpeg

    Great start Kurt. You did much more than add a few missing details to the czapska my friend. Did you also redo the plume as well?

    Thank you very much. Yes, I did. The plume provided in the kit was nice, but it wasn’t nearly as tall as my references regarding Colbert indicated. I sawed off the upper section and then drilled out the base. I cut a section of tall grass from a Woodland Scenics model railroad set and filled the base with as much as it would hold. I then coated the grass with several coats of thinned white glue, and bent it backwards to give a feathery, windswept look. The bust features Colbert ‘at the charge’, so this will hopefully reflect motion and look more realistic when I’m finished.

    Good detail painting, and good additions to the original.

    Like what you’ve done with this so far Kurt. Love the detail additions on the czapka and super paintwork.
