    Interesting to me that you left the lace white and painted the dark blue and red uniform colours around it. I would never try that but would instead paint the lace onto the ground colour. Neat to see a different style in play. Is the reason that the white under coat results in brighter lace?

    Hi Colin, I always try and paint neatly around each part if possible, especially if it's a light colour like gold - I find it easier to paint light colours over white than, say, dark blue. I try to keep the layers needed to a minimum.

    Thanks Carl. There is a slight sheen but the photos make it look worse than it is..

    I met him and his wife (Stepanie?) during my Career-he was a lovely fellow and a great loss when he died so young. Very unpretentious in spite of his success-He joked that it was only steel plates holding him together-a brave man.

    You finished it Edward.
    You done a great job on this really nice figure.
    I started the face on mine.....so many miles to go??
    What did you use for the cord on the shako, and the belts for the sword.

    Thanks for your comments!

    Marc, the shako cords are just 2 pieces of wire, and the sword belts are made from PVC tape cut to size.
