    I'm currently working on this well-known masterpiece from Romeo. It's been around the top of my to-do list for years now. One of the things that's held me back was the intimidating flag and the text that must be painted freehand. Knowing it would be tough, I decided to get it out of the way first. It was probably the most challenging task I've faced on a figure, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Now it's all downhill from here! Sorry the pic is a bit blurry, I was holding the flag as I photographed it. Thanks for looking! More to follow . . .

    Just incredible Jason!

    The checkers alone are amazing, let alone the text, especially 54mm.

    Amazing talent!

    Cheer's,

    You've painted that perfectly, Jason. The way you've shaded/highlighted the wreath and checkers on the flag is beautiful. The text is outstanding too.

    I think a lot of us shy away from standards, especially in 54mm, but you've bitten the bullet and scored a bullseye. Well done[ please excuse mixed metaphors]
