    Hi Oda,
    All of us who are historical figures, have a duty to rigor.

    Thank you very much Eduardo, I am glad that you liked the figure. If you've read the historical review, it's the Colonel's uniform of the King's Own Royal Norfolk Yeomanry Regiment. With this uniform he paraded at the funeral of his father-in-law King Edward VII in May 1910.

    Lovely figure! My wife had to remind me (again) that I need to start FINISHING projects before buying new ones!

    (Bookmarked your website, though :)...)

    Hi Randy,

    Thank you very much for your words. Nevertheless I always remember what Oscar Wilde said: "The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it."
