    Well Mr Farrugia

    What an amazing piece, I am really loving this, I must admit I never thought of using lead foil as the material for leather, a good tip I think, on a great conversion.

    As with most good conversions they look better than the original, I am not saying that the sculpting by John Rosengrant is bad, just restricted to being able to take the casting process into account, whereas when converting for your own collection, there is always more scope.

    Damned impressive conversion with some beautiful painting to top it off, I really would have loved this as a commercial piece.......just great

    Just as another pointer Ray, do you not think he looks like he could have been Wyatt Earp, just by changing the hat to a stetsan.........hm interesting

  20. Great piece Mundu

    One of the lucky one's that have seen it in the flesh!
    Might you promote as well the sbs on 'El Passo' of our enterprise on Maltese Corsairs!
