    Hi all

    I'm really grad to announce a start of my new company LIFE MINIATURES.
    To launch the new company there are going to be one new release of 1/10 bust.
    It depicts a Vietnam war photographer wearing the US M65 field jacket over the US Navy wet weather pullover.
    And there is 3 cameras hanging down from his neck and shoulder, Nikon F and Leica M3 and another M3 with different lens.
    This bust is sculpted by Ju-Won Jung who had sculpted some of Young Miniatures busts and some of Hottoy's 12" figures.
    And now I'm painting the box art :)
    Posting again here with box art pics, I will let you know the distributors where you can buy it.

    Any comments are welcome.

    Thank you.

    Although the bust is not my period of interest, you've taken the art of sculpting to a new level.The face and the hair is so lifelike and the name Of Life Miniatures is very appropriate.Absolutely stunning.
    You won't need any luck or have any problems in your new venture if the standard is as high as this. Look forward to seeing him painted Lee to your normal high standards.

    Excellent and awesome sculptwork. All the details into the Leica camera's are superb.
    Think we gonna see alot of these on the contest tables.
    Good luck with your new adventure, but I think it is gonna be great, if you gonna produce such detailed figures. Hope to see some more into the future and not only WW II and Vietnam war.

    Brilliant works guys! A true tribute to a great man, looks to be based on Larry Burrows or inspired by this amazing photography killed in Laos in '71. He is the man behind so many of the iconic images of the war.

    Any chance you'll include his trademark glasses as well?

    Presume "Life Miniatures" will focus on imagery from this magazine, such an rich source to be sculpted.

    Keep 'em coming,

    Mike

    Fine sculpting of an unusual subject. Your new business will prosper if this standard is kept up.

    As a working news photographer who still has my old Nikon and has done much research on the great war photographers, this sculpt knocked me sideways. Can't wait to see it painted and I suspect it will be a runaway hit!

    What a wonderfully done bust....something this well done must be painted,it transcends the "it is not my historical period" thing if you like to paint busts. This guy will paint itself....look at it.
