    The sash has fine threads running across so tried to simulate that texture ...quite happy .....ish !

    Might put a wash of satin varnish over

    Little bit of tidying up

    Next the stars and then the actual uniform colour

    All comments welcome

    Happy benchtime

    Lovin' how it's shaping up Busty. (y)

    Do you wrap the body up in cling film so that you can get at the head without damaging all that lovely bling? (Something I ought to do, but haven't yet) ;)

    (Might be the iffi vision camera, but there seems to be a bit of a purply hue to the dark blue in some images)

    Keep 'em coming mate, really enjoying this one

    Cheers Mr Leggy Planey

    It's getting there

    I do use cling film ...oh you mean on the bust! .....YES YES ...or paper towel around

    Your right ref the purple tinge ...it's only the easiest or rather closest to me at the time ....it will have a new dark blue basecoat prior to painting .......that's next after the half star

    Enjoy the benchtime ....share the results

    Hi Nap.
    I have been following this with great interest. I love the additions you have made to it . Well done.
    I am a little confused with the Bottom Star./half star. It looks as though you have painted it as The order of the British Empire Breast star. (Below)

    But if you look at your ref pic of phil the greek, It shows him wearing the order of The Thistle Breast Star .

    Nice work either way.
