    Just superbly done. Interesting how haphazard the wearing of medals was at the time.

    ,

    Thank you ....it was a interesting piece to do !

    Thought I'd redo it when you've painted at least 10 of those models you've got displayed in gray primer.....lol

    Thanks for the sculpt ...it is still all your fault

    Thank you Mike , looking at the medals layout , many variations even within regiments !


    Thanks all for commenting

    A “labour of love” that’s been worth the perseverance Nap. Some lovely detail work on the badges and probably the right choice to re-do the sash when you see the final outcome.

    Fantastic. One of the first things taught as recruits were the Corps V.C recipients.

    Final resting place.

    Superb job Kevin… don’t know how you manage to get all those intricate medal and insignia details. You’ve got better eyesight and a steadier hand than me (y)
