    Hugo, this is excellent news, and thoroughly well- deserved for your dedication to your artistry. May the coming year continue in the same successful vein.
    I'm sure Nuno is thrilled, too. I have so enjoyed Boudicca and the chariot (now waiting for a base to complete ). Hopefully, I'll have something to show you at Euromodelexpo in May.(y)

    Hello my GOOD FRIEND Kevin

    Thank you so much my friend. The last year it was a heavy year and this year the beginning isnt easy too... But in a few weeks I believe everything will be fine. This medal its our victory and for other hand its a signal that we are working well. Many things to improve and to grow up, but I believe we have potential to grow more... The most important its the enjoyment of the hobby. Sometimes we forget this part and this is the most important part... Enjoy a little bit and in the end of the day we have our time to clean our mind and thaughts...

    The medals are 4 but you just will see the last one... The other figures are SOLD OUT long time ago, so its time for them to rest and be retired... LOL... LOL... I will just the new figures... The elephant bust its SOLD OUT and the few left are in my traders/partners but I will bring with me for share this victory with people...

    Thank you so much and a big kiss to Caroline
