    Ok, yes, a book mark would be excellent!

    A letter with a bookmark within can't be too expensive, but might be tedious, lol.


    Regardless, Mike, I'm good either way, just looking forward to that book.;) You should be a proud Lad for doing such, I'm happy that it's come to fruition for you.

    Yep proud to have book out & hear it is inspiring folks to try some new stuff Ski.
    Discussed with missus & got some good ideas along personal card/bookmark front as suggested by Nap above.
    Less hassles & sort it sooner.
    More to come.

    Looking forward to hear what ideas you have Mike? I had a few people wanting signed copies of my book but the Pandemic as well as distance/cost of postage, etc. has stopped it.

    My painted version of Steve Warrilow’s 1:10 Kiwi Trooper in Palestine bust will be given away to one lucky purchaser of my book.
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Wow!!! That is great to hear Andrew.
    Who did you order from?

    I haven’t seen physical books yet & only temporarily glanced at eBook.
    Remember to email me detail for you to go into draw for NZMR Bust - “Henry”

    Direct from Crowood, had resigned myself to not seeing the book until late October, but had a pleasant surprise on the back door step this morning! Thanks for the reminder, will do that now.

    No idea when my copies will arrive but maybe they aren’t too far off. Do tell us what you think of it as you work your way through it Andrew.

    Got to admit Nap, I'm a very, very part time modeler! Things tend to sit on the work bench for a while, but I have Foxwood (ex-Stormtrooper molds) Scottish Signalman bust next in line so will be trying out Mike's techniques and will be sure to post so WIP photos up for comment.

    Congratulations Mike, this looks like a very inspiring book, not just for World War 1 buffs either, but for any figure modeller. Your work is amazing, attention to detail, second to none.
