    Great progress with the painting, I also heard Mike worked in a hospital and I think he was into re-enactment, but that was many years ago. Last saw him walking around Euro dressed as a GI! All the best Mike wherever you are.

    I can definitely see the attraction of this figure Paul, wouldnt think it was 80`s figure looking at it.
    Great job on the painting i really like the sabretache detailing.

    Cheers Ken,very kind.

    Carl,I was going to buy some,then had a moment of madness,a mass of very dry leaf's had blown under my garage door,gathered round my bike's front wheel,so in that moment of madness I grabbed a few and in to my freshly cleaned coffee grinder and pulsed them down to in scale leaf size?
    Glued on with pva,happy days "Blue Peter" has a lot to answer for!
    Thanks for looking.
    Best Regards
    Paul :D

    Hi Paul,

    It may have taken 20 years but well worth the wait, great job Paul on this classic. Thanks for posting the WIP's I've already downloaded the pics, if I can get to within 50% of that work I'll be pleased. Well done mate look forward to seeing it in the flesh.
