    Hi Everyone!

    I've taken a forced sabbatical from figure painting the last couple of years due to a developing cataract. I have had the surgury and had started working again as I was able to see in stereo again :)

    The I had a problem with angina which rapidly developed and on the 2nd of this month I had an angiogram and 9 days later a Stent fitted via my right femoral artery.

    so things have been a bit random!!

    A couple of days after my eye op I started on this 75mm figure from Troop 54 and had it finished in about 4 weeks, not my best work but a good start I felt.




    After that I painted up a Dragon 1/16th figure that had been sitting on my bench for a few years, I stalled it at this point as I need to chop up a 1/16th Trumpeter t34 to make a backdrop but thats another story :)



    Then I decided after my angina diagnosis to go back to basics and work up a plastic kit with a minor conversion, Tamiyas MG Gunner with the origional head from the dragon Kharkov figure....

    This is where I'm at with this....



    I don't think I'll be doing any SBS stuff anytime soon but I'll post up any thing I finish :)
