    This is turning into a nice series of busts & unusual. Units that you would not dream of taking part in the American war of Independence.
    Well done Ian & Ellie.

    Cheers Guys

    Gells .....

    Finished all the frogging on the chest

    ...buttons next then the leather strap , cross belt , flesh , cap lines and finally the headwear itself

    For some reason I didn't do the flesh first ..just the eyes


    Daniel ....I am quite pleased with the uniform colour pushed the highs a bit more but this is just painting itself!

    Said it before sometimes bench time just flows and this is one of those times ...looking forward to getting the Bombardier from the box!

    Thanks for looking in
