    Hi to all ,

    Also on the bench ...and looking so much better than these pics!!!!!! ...a sculpt by Fex for MMM .....some area's are a little rough but rugged .....an interesting character who was full of controversy ..a soldiers soldier and a leader of men from the front

    The flesh tones look so much better in the flesh so to speak ...eyes to be done !!!...finished the glengarry now as well ...just the badge to do in NMM , then the graying hair , then the uniform colour ( a very dark green)the collar dogs and the epaulettes ..all NMM as well ...then the medals ....only 7 to do ...and a MID ...will really come together once the epaulettes are done ...hopefully .

    Thanks for looking in

    Nice job and a difficult sculpt by Fex. Mitchell has an unusual face with very very strong features. Reminds me a bit of a Thunderbirds puppet. Scott Tracy? The real man, not your model.
