    Great stuff!

    I have Maori ancestry myself (no close relatives in the Maori Battalion, so far as know, though), so it's always nice to see something commemorating that part of NZ's history :)

    Hi Fet,

    Our history may be shallow compared with European & Asian timelines, but it is still rich.
    Especially the contribution of our Maori ancestors.
    Pleased this helps in a small way to recognise this.
    My next project will represent them in WW1.

    Thanks & welcome on board here.

    Hey Badger thanks so much mate & glad you feel he inspires you.
    Personally I feel still got lots of learning to do so keep practicing each day.
    Been working on lots of little guys & hanging out for a crack at another big fellow.
    Though will stick to busts for now.

    Keep going for it mate, our only limitation is in our head :)

    Share more soon.
