    This is looking very nice indeed Kevin and an inspiration. Hope all is well and "Life" doesn't get in the way too much of your Modeling.

    Hope it's nothing that a whiff of resin & thinners won't cure.

    Take care.

    Peter.

    Kev,
    I know whats it like to lose the mojo, I hadn't picked up a brush, for about ten years till, Jan this year.
    Keep bashing a way at the busts.
    This one is superb, nice detail on the BD. All the other bits are coming together really well. Keep it coming
    (I've just stuck my finger in the blue oil paint, @*^%@$!!!) :mad:

    The texturing on the equipment is very effective.

    Wowzer.......

    Mate there's so much that's excellent here !

    What stands out for me is always the details that can be taken for granted.

    The rank insignia, the woolen seaman's jumper and the bergen are so spot on it's ultra realism.

    Well done mate, than heavans month and jo turned up.

    Looking forward to the last strech now.

    Let us know how the wet paletting goes mate,

    enjoy your show on agincourt day.
