    Frenchy looks great Nap, and I like your excuse for the no weathering; that's the same excuse I would use :).......subtle flesh tones;.. the eyes on Bishop and the overall work on both make these two pieces you should be proud to show......keep up the good work.

    Great reason Nap :). In truth, it looks really good even without dirt. I like the tonality of colors for both, the balance of contrasts and attention to the detail. I'm not a painter, so I can only appreciate the style - I like it - I do not like it, without deeper penetration into the essence of the techniques and their evaluation, but I like these busts a lot. Well done indeed Nap :).

    Cheers Borek

    Hi All,
    I don't know how I missed this thread:facepalm:. Big thumbs up Kevin Dunne for running with this and everyone else who has responded.(y)

    I have asked for two busts to be cast up and I will collect these from Oundle on the 29th of this month. I want to donate these free to any pF member anywhere in world on me, all you have to do is paint them and send them to the Armistice Project. I will choose the two members and send these out at my expense also. You have until the 30th of this month to contact me via pm.

    I know I made the Naval Brigade bust as a Zulu war piece, but it could be painted up/altered to a WW1 sailor quite easily. the other is my A.N.Z.A.C. Roo. Both are 1/9 scale.
    cheers

    Greetings everyone...and apologies. World Expo, my daughters return from Africa and other obligations have kept me busy a bit.
    Lots of new busts on the way after Expo...recruited some world class painters also. Rob Morris, Penny Meyer,Jack Muldoon and New Englands infamous Hawaiian Shirt Mafia for a group project.
    Paul at Model Cellar has some great new WWI busts in the pipeline...mountain troops mostly.
    I will put out a list of the new busts I have on hand...when I have them on hand.
    Off to New York City tomorrow for a weekend of photography and to celebrate my little girls 40th...does that ever make me feel ancient!!!

    Greetings all,
    At long last, some free time.
    Here are the busts I have on hand as of today:
    Model Cellar: German POW 1918...nice piece.
    Shhhh Brit Trench raider
    Alpini
    MCM..."I will be home soon son"
    JMD Algerian Tirailleur 1914
    Hawk...Asst. Brit pilots...nicely done.
    Von Hindenburg
    I will be getting more when Model Cellar releases them...exiting stuff too...some more mountain troops. Also expecting some from AC miniatures...Aussies.
    Sending out a group email soon so everyone gets on this thread.
    Thank you again everyone...the Project is coming along nicely. We have an offer of a collection of WWI equipment and uniforms for the display and I discovered that the Wilkinson blade that I have and thought was from Skinners Horse is in fact from a Capt in the Scots Greys who served in WWI!
    Chers all...and thank you.
