    John - I can't do better than Stephen's comment - another SMASHER!

    One request, if I may - could you lighten the photos a bit? They're a little dark for my old eyes.

    All the best,

    Very Very nice, its good to see KIWIs represented in the modelling world
    a quick question I was going to put it as a post.Approx how long to sculpt an average 54mm fig??(I know its a little like asking how long is a piece of string)
    just as a guide

    Cheers
