    I'm finally going to call this one 95% finished,the reason being is I only have the musket sling and knapsack insignia to complete,i've attached the bust to the base (not glued) as it will be easier to paint the sling this way,once the backpack insignia is complete i'll finaly fix the bust to the base.
    I have added some tiny spots of black to the uniform and right side of the face to simulate the powder marks which were always evident after long spells of firing the musket.

    As some of the bust wont be visible after final attachment I've added photos to show the bust 360 degrees.

    Its took me a little longer than planned due to the xmas break and shift work apologies for the delay.
    Many thanks to all those who have supported the project during the updates.

    Great work Brian.
    Just shows what can be done when you've only got half a figure.
    The way you've painted him really shows what a rough time he's had. Inspired.

    Great painting and modelling skills but above all great imagination to see the scene in your head and then implement it. Well done Brian. (y)

    Great work Brian. I thought mine was 95% finished with just the backpack insignia to do. It took me nearly as long as the rest of the figure!

    Brian,
    That is one awesome paint and setting. Very ingenious and the colours and weathering is top notch. You would never know it was a bust:D
