    Hi Ralph,

    Thanks for looking in will do fairly regular updates ...hopefully!!

    As for music...currently the London Phily Orchestra plays Pink Floyd , then it's Dire Straits, or Mark Knofler ...or sometimes the Phantom of the Opera , Gladiator or maybe classical!

    Cheers

    Nap. I'm afraid you may be stretching the truth a little too far with calling me "young man" you may wish to revise this statement when we meet. Lol.

    That's coming on nicely Kev, love the textures. In your rush to get it done though, don't do anything silly like mistaking the primer can for the varnish can :rolleyes::whistle::). I'm sticking to brushes (y).
    As for what music, that would make a good thread on its own. Currently on my bench, sculpting a Landsknecht, painting a woodland elf and a viking so I'm sort of switching between Debussy and The Ride of the Valkyrieso_O. It gets confusing?

    Hi Guys ,

    No pics as yet but thought I would do a verbal update.....

    Added additional leather retaining straps to the bergan and lengthened the straps

    Reworked the grenade rings and pull pin

    Added the 2 insignia to right upper arm

    Drilled out weapon barrel and the sight sides , as well as holes where pin was removed from grenade

    Added through strap on retaining pin on weapon stock

    Added a magazine pouch to the stock or a bit of a challenge to me !

    I will be repositioning the ŵeapon position slightly as well

    All parts now primed black , working on the the flesh tones and the texture on the beret .

    Main Torso less pistol, water bottle , knife and belt grenade mounted on brass rod and on chosen base .

    Nameplate ordered!!!!!

    Sorry no pics but they would just be primer!!

    Now not rushing this to finish , as I want to really go to town on textures

    Thanks for looking in..more update with pics soon
