    Looking good Les. Nice idea to re-work the shield. My only suggestion would be to tone down the brass on the helmet. A couple of washes to take the edge off maybe, but this only my choice.

    Regards

    Nice work Les. I specially like the leather. What type of paint are you using: acrilics or oil?

    Really looking good Les! I have wanted this bust for quite some time. I have to admit I have heard some not so flattering comments about the quality of the casting. Some people have also said they had no problems with the casting. I just don't want to get one with a bad casting I guess. How was your's?

    Just great Les, super bit of work. Like what you have done with this very nice figure.

    Jim I think the much talked about bad casting was just at the very start. I dont think there have been any problems since the quality control was straightened out. Have seen a few and they look perfect
