    Hi I'm new to this forum hello everybody.
    After a break of some years from modelmaking and painting I'm back and the busts of the like of Youngs, Mig etc. are a revelation because 1/35 is just a little too small.
    I now have 24 busts by Youngs, Andrea and Mig in various stages of completion. Recently I visited El Greco and bought a Stormtroopers 1/9 Frozen German soldier and he is primed and ready to go. Also I bought some Magic Sculp and will only be using Milliput for the most basic of filling and for groundwork, Magic Sculp is…well…Magic! I also bought a mannequin bust and some sculpting tools from them to try my hand, when I can post on here I will put my first effort up here for you good people to critique and hopefully give some suggestions.
    regards Ian/Bogusman53 :)

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! And is that the Carl Reid? I have your Royal Fusilier, he's almost complete and I have a nice touch which is a genuine WWI Royal Fusilier cap badge for the Plinth. Thanks once again everyone and will put some pics up for your comments and critique.
