    Hi Guys ,

    Sorry it's iPad pics but getting ready to eat Jimbo out of house and home ..and biccies before he spends all his money at FW ...meaning we will be eating lots of £ shop stuff in future paint days .....lol

    The girls are just base coated , going for different complextions on them the land army will have a dotted headscarf ( as seen in the Rosue the Riveter war poster) ..added a badge to her chest as well and a bow to the WRVS hat at the side.

    PC.....face done except the 5 o'clock shadow and the hair , helmet all complete , badge is black rubbed worn , with brass 141 below a C ....added some air vents at the sides

    Today's mission at Jimbos ....the duty armband , helmet wording and hopefully the uniform

    I do like a chap who went to the Mick3272 School of photography ,
    People think photos like these are the product of i pads or phones,
    But as we know to get those subtle shades and misty looks takes skill :D

    Given the subject I am surprised it ain't a photofit or pastel chalk from a Court artist.

    Hi Guys,

    Bit of an update here ...Firstly the base that Jimbo has done ....a small wall with cobbles in front and sandbags on top ...the 3 holes are for the 2 busts and the pitchfork , around the base and busts will be various scaled down posters , ration books etc

    wip 007.jpg wip 006.jpg

    The PC ...all done pics not the best colours washed out a bit !!

    Stunning work, well done to you both well well worth the time & effort .
    I like the way he is on the wall to give height as we don't want any 5ft 8in
    City of London Coppers . Have to be 6ft.

    Watch were you put the pitchfork as they don't like it up um.
