    Small update

    The aguilette tip ends have a crown and initials underneath , so I have added it (initials are a suggestion in this scale)

    Also added the second cord at the rear of aguilette

    Will post pics on Saturday

    I see what you mean Kev, the pattern doesn't follow completely. Luckily it's only a small correction to make.

    Looking good, looking forward to see the metal work on ghe medals.

    You're going to hate me Kev..... sorry :(

    The Duke's medal has two zig-zag lines, not three... and the red edge looks a bit wider, but that may be the photograph.

    edit.. I see that there is a difference in some of the ribbons, due to the continuation of the pattern, and the cut. Ignore my ramblings.

    Coming along nicely Kev, enough bling even for you!
    Personally, I preferred the ribbon first time round.

    Don't know who the person in the 9th Gate is but it certainly isn't Prince Philip.

    Cheers Wayne ..a good name ....a few choice words during painting ...lol , just the NZ one left to do and redetail the others hinting at the inscriptions

    I am happy with the NZ ribbon ....interesting to find out about it

    Then it's the neck award and shoulder chain then stars .......then a well deserved cup of tea !

    Thanks for comment
