    East Anglia - well Peterborough actually.
    A first-timer here and recently returned to model figure building/painting after a break of about 30 years.
    Just finished a Maurice Corry sculpted 120mm 5th Dragoon Guard. I might post a few a pics when I feel a bit more confident.
    Cheers for now.

    Hi John, I am also in Peterborough. Don't worry about posting work on this forum you will be made welcome and given nothing but support and encouragement. Try to get to Figure World at Oundle on July 25 where you will get chance to see some great figure painting but also meet some of the great folks on this forum.

    Pretty decent work after thirty years I would say. You will find a lot has changed but it's as fun and relaxing as ever.

    G'day John, welcome to Planet Figure. Doesn't look like the 30 year break from figure modelling has hurt your painting skills.

    Hi Graham

    I've got a 120mm 11th Hussar from Mitches Military Models which will be my next project - I'll keep you posted. I've also got a hankering after the diehard drummers figures. Also got a vague idea about the Loyal Regiment but not sure yet.

    Cheers
