    Great progress Nap. I like how you keep going. With great emphasis on detail, with care and great attention to detail. It's amazing to watch your threads. Very well done, keep up the great work ...

    Btw, blood on the sword, and injuries from Joseph is amazing. I'm curious about your version ...

    Cheers Borek

    Hi Peter

    Good to hear from you mate hope all is well , to be honest the picture are not the best for some reason the uniform is a lot lighter than in real life !! ..its more in keeping to the uniform references here ..the textures show up a lot more !!

    Just looked at it again and realised I have only done one of the chindit badges ...bugger!!!..lol

    Oh well its an enjoyable piece to work on ...and its coming on well in between my mass of prepped up pieces !!!

    Thanks for looking in
