    Hi all,

    Here is my latest figure. This is a first for me, a Bust and a modern subject at that, quite a stray from the usual Napoleonic. This was really fun to paint. I had to work on a lot of new colors to pull this one off.

    All comments welcome.

    Thanks for looking

    Mike, Jam up job on the bust! Thanks for posting your work! It is one of my favorite FFL busts of all time. Wish Metal Modeles would do some more from the FFL as they would be fun and colorful to paint. Enjoyed seeing your rendition.

    Hi Marcus,

    You are correct this is a Michael Saez sclupture. It was a really interesting experience. Thanks for looking!

    Mike, Great! I look forward to seeing it in person. Have a safe trip and see you in 3 weeks.


    PS< If you are a fan of the FFL, look around for United Empire Miniatures. They did a couple FFL busts that were really neat. I have them all as John Lea, former owner was a member of our club. The Navrik one was my favorite of the releases. He had a bust of an officer from War in Mexico done by Mike Good that was really neat as well.

    All the Best, Terry
