    Hi everyone

    Following on from my review of the Rob Lane sculpt for Black Hawk here:


    In the review I mentioned I might add the sword ...well ....

    This was the box it came in ..


    This was the reference I used ..along with others !!


    This was the result ( nowhere near Robs talent !! ) ...it's been cleaned and refined a bit now and is all based up and primed ...currently in a very long line on the ever expanding shelf of shame !!!

    I needed to wait for putty to go totally off before adding each individual part

    Also moved the sash to the other side

    The black is primer undrneath before I based it up

    Picked this bust up at the recent SMW. Lovely bust from Rob & your Sword elevates it even further. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
