    Nice one Nap, that set from MMM is really good, I got the three at the start of my bust painting and enjoyed them.

    Looks to be a well sculpted piece and excellent start with the paint. Always liked the movie "Zulu"......Other than that...."I don't know".
    Keep up the good work and stay safe. And as my mother used to say as I walked out the door...."Make sure you wear damn condom".

    Hi Folks

    Bit of a verbal update ...uniform all finished , cape finished , lions lasso and chain done

    Collar all done except the badges ...

    After looking at refs and consulting with the oracle known as Richie ....he said the badges should be silvered in keeping with film image

    ......guess whst I painted it ...goldie/ brass ......so repainting it !

    These references show both in use ..the first from a officer worn in 1879 in SA image.png

    This also from a Officer killed image.jpeg

    Must admit I am enjoying this one ..nice bit of scarlet

    Think if I was to do it again ..I might add the straps possibly

    Pics soon

    Happy benchtime

    Stay safe
