    Hi fellow modellers and painters,

    my name is Ulf Petersen and I live in Germany, near Hamburg.
    My main spare time activity is scale modelling. But painting busts and figures is great fun to me as well.
    My first attempt with painting a bust and some 1:16 figures I made in 2011 - so I am afraid my experience is not that impressing, but I am always curious and willing to learn.
    I work with Vallejo Model Colour and W&N Series 7 brushes.

    The reason for me to sign in here was a visit at the Cheb Model Show this October where I listened to a figure sculpting workshop given by Radek Pituch, who is a member here.
    I plan to make some quite ambitious Dioramas where I will have to sculpt own figures in 1:35 for as there is nothing suitable available on the market. I hope to learn a lot here and to get some support with my ideas.

    Looking forward to having a good time with you.

    Regards

    Ulf

And he told me that I have the right to use everything and i ask my lawer and he told me the same thing. But now I seen on internet that the name of sarum soldiers exist already. Do you know why?

    Oh yes lovely.

    Terrific groundwork and interaction of the figures.

    That is a great silver birch tree rear left.

    Thanks for sharing,
