    Hello,

    I began to create another hussar bust, which is meant to wear hood and on his back has Kalkan, amour, simple bust without any wings - I should be able to complete it quickly, at least before 2020 ... ;) .

    Concept below.

    Any comments, photos, comments, criticism are welcome ... I hope that I can avoid past errors - as I read on one of a Russian forums: 'my previous hussar bust has a breastplate like a life jacket'... and I couldn't agree more with that ;) :D.

    BR, Piotr

    Small update - kalkan shield ready.

    The Persian pattern copied from a Persian rug...
    Please note that its actual size comparing to the buts' size is smaller - the photos' perspective amended the size a little bit...

    Sorry for the photo quality!

    A little bit of progress, all parts are not glue yet just put on the bust for the moment of taking the photo. I think that the bust is now 33% completed.
    Note that the armour is still in the development phase - so some inaccuracies will be removed later.

    Hello, a little more progress than last time. Thanks to my collegues' advices I have reshaped the armour (comparing to the last photos). So I estimate that the bust is 50% ready, still there is a cloak to be added and all gears. Hope you like it. The head is almost ready - I have to add more wrinkles.

    Piotr,

    This is looking good like the way the armour now looks certainly no life jacket !

    Are you working off any particular references?

    What scale are you going for ?

    Following with interest

    Happy 2015

    Thank you guys for the feedback and interest :)

    Scale is something between 1/9 and 1/10 and 200mm :) Who knows...

    References - hm... cause there is no many known photographs from the period ;) I gone trough the literature, known armors and also direct reference is from some reenactors site (I will try to posts those pictures later).

    BR, Piotr
    Happy 2015!

    Hi Piotr,

    Happy new year , this reminds me of Siskin Miniatures busts a long time ago ( think you might be the sculptor there maybe? ) .....

    I like the hood down version as well as up , is this going to be an option if it's commercial ..do hope so .

    What!?....no photographs ...shock!!...only joking , I am sure your references are great , look forward to seeing any pictures you might have

    Thanks for sharing
