    Hi Ken:

    This bust turned out so beautifully, Ken. I would think since women,
    especially these brave and young Russian women from that terrible war
    on the Eastern Front, would have such small and delicate features, such
    as the nose, ears, mouth, that it would be that much more difficult, than
    rendering the face of a man. This obviously shows what skill and talent
    that you possess. Congratulations on a job well done.

    The subject matter is one I hope you will expand upon; and I see this
    particular rendering as a way of paying homage to the brave and
    dedicated Russian women, from so long ago. We need to remember
    them, and the sacrifices that made, as I see it. That horrific nightmare
    exacted a terrible toll. Knowing that she also was killed in combat, then
    this bust, for me, will be a reminder, that:

    "Freedom is not free"

    Thank you, sincerely,

    rick

    Rick, appreciate the comments and glad you like her. It's a very interesting subject and one I'll do more of, in fact I've already started the next female heroine and as they say "stay tuned". ;)

    Ken a very nice to finish to this one mate and great choice to bite the bullet and redo the decorations, the revised versions are much better and very realistic with more profile.
    Looking forward to whats next with the female sculpting, well done mate(y)

    Ken,
    sorry I missed this, great work!

    female are a touch more demanding, due to their more subtle nature (build wise) and it was good to see this done.

    Einion seems to have excellent anatomical knowledge, he was spot on about something I missed!

    Great work Ken!

    Cheers

    I am going to spill the beans. Yes, it is the start of a range of "heroines"

    It will not stop with Russians.

    Jamie , always appreciate your comments. I have shortened the neck and as I replied to Einion with the addition of the epaulettes I hope it has made a positive difference. I saw her as a proud woman , shoulders back, head held high and showing off her medals and I hope that apperance comes across.

    Pedro , many thanks. (y)

    Piet, thankyou and I can announce that it will be availiable soon from .... this is where I need a smilie with a drum .roll :D Minuteman Models .http://www.minutemanmodels.com
