    Hi Guys,

    Update finished the neckcloth going for a worn dirty slightly grimy look same as face .

    This is the reason for this post

    Jimbo has worked wonders on the base , it's as we spoke about , there are 3 levels be for each bust ....in the bottom right there is a child's doll as a link to the children in the war ...... which I will paint before finally fixing the busts in position (should be about a week before both finished)

    I am gobsmacked that someone so good at eating biscuits can also produce this ...TOP NOTCH stuff Jimbo

    Here's the pictures he sent last night ..just had to share
