    John,

    Little more I can add other than there won't be any competition in Wellington for you!
    This is a sitter for BOS again and I so look forward to seeing your creation in the flesh.

    Congrats mate you've captured the dignity of the chief superbly.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Mike

    John,

    This is truly fantastic mate. You have captured the likeness superbly, but what is even better you have caught the essence of the piece, which is far more tricky to achieve.

    Great work well done!!!
