    Looking good so far keep it up. By the way I know what you mean about The Spahi lol. That’s why I got Juan to do the box art. I would be seeing stripes in my sleep

    What are you like ...very much in the lower grade but just enjoying it , it is a nice piece and uniform with the facings and the single epaulette

    Thanks , it's a good period of history to work on , hope there's more released

    Your right there Santi , the face screams out to be painted


    Verbal update

    Back at bench after a break away , metalwork all finished and did a bit more on the helmet panels last night , finishing off that then the face

    Stay tuned all
