    Ok Don,first of all many thanks for your coments,your'e quite right about the bricks,I was planning on using some plaster board to shape my own bricks but I had to settle on embossed sheet brick and they are smaller than they should be.
    I'm not quite sure what you mean about the window,I can't see anything odd about it at all,it could be your eyesight as you said,I don't think these minor things have taken anything away from the piece,at the end of the day it's a model so there will always be inaccuracies present,in this hobby nobody gets every single detail right and I used the window setting to portray the story of the struggle arround hougomount,some artistic licence sometimes has to be used,so I'm not going to worry about a cornice or whether something's not vertical compared to something else,when the day arrives I start to get hung up about such things I'll give up the hobby
    Thanks for your positive coments

    Brian, there's nothing wrong about any of this concept - the window looks fine to me,too, and I greatly admire the effects you reproduce, capturing the whole essence of action and urgency. That shako cover is a lesson in itself (y)

    Brian, Love the way this bust is turning out...Like the weathering and details added to the shako and shako cover. Face shows lots of emotion! The window frame and bricks really bring this all to life!

    Looking forward to seeing the continuation/completion of the Coldstream Bust! Well Done !!! :cool:
