    Hi all,
    First pair of a series of 1/35th WW1 British crew I'm working on for Copper State Models.
    Each is a lovely little sculpt of ordinary blokes just going about daily activities.
    What do you think?

    Bloody hell Mike, These look like 75 or 120mm but I know they are 54s, I had to check twice. Superb, excellent and outstanding painting. Looking forward to more of you work.

    Their lanchester is state of the art, and the Meng Rolls should be very cool..

    Neat to hear from you Scotty - ta mate! More to come :)
    Thanks for commenting Mobo
    Nice to hear you see a 'style' Hobbes. Thanks.
    I know this suits some & not others, will keep trying to refining it.

    Totally agree GH & you should see what else is planned!
    Seen Romfeld?
    Lots more crewmen to come here over next few months too.
    Appreciate you taking time to comment Sergei.
    Second driver was a neat, simple study I had fun painting & bringing some variety to his clothing.
    Thanks to you all, back to the brushes!

    You have to see your work blown up to really appreciate it! I have 3 of your beauties now, which I treasure, and they're so small in reality, it's hard to see all you've acheived without help, for my tired eyes anyway!?
    Fantastic work again Mike!!
