    I'll attach them in a different way. I have no idea why they are there for me?
    Here we go...

    I can see photos OK Andy, so not sure what issue is.
    Thanks for letting me be part of this project.

    I'm not sure what happens? When I logged on at work today the images weren't there. Now they are? I've uploaded them here in a different way, so hopefully you can all see them? I'll get some good photos when I can. This is all I have so far.
    Seeing Mike's painting in the flesh is weird, because you can't see all it's detail with the naked eye! It's so good to have my work treated with his magic! THANKS Mike!

    Was able to look at the latest pictures. Looking really good, and a very interesting concept of displaying this work - both artistic, but also educational for those who will (hopefully) never experience these harsh conditions.

    Here are a few more photos of the model. Mike's painting is amazing and needs magnification to appreciate properly. I've put my fingers in the first photo so you can see how small the figure is in reality!
    I started getting worried about the size of the rat again but, if you check on the net, you'll find photos of rats that size! Percy (Mike's Great Uncle) has just spotted this beast in his shaving mirror.

    This latest set of photos nicely present Uncle Percy (apology for earlier 'Perey' typo).
    Here's a photo of him with a NZMG Corps mate recovering c.Sep 1918 after his third Wounded in Action rest up - this time from a gun shot to left shoulder.
    Hope you can see some likeness with Nino's original Tommy's War sculpt Andy chose for his conversion.
    Happy 2017 to all on the Planet from Downunder.

    Here are some of the whoppers. My Grandfather wrote about them running over him at night and having to secure food, etc. from where they could get it.
