    Kenneth, my friend, very beautiful, I like it.

    To me an artist is someone who can come up with an idea and than create create something out of clay or sculpy, Kenneth you fit that mold. (y)

    As I've said before I tip my hat off to you and all the other fine scupters on this forum. ;)

    Keep up the good work and keep on posting.

    Roc. :)

    Jason,Roc,Guy,Hardy,thank you very,very much for the encouraging and positive comments ! Coming from experts like yourselves is high praise indeed :lol: ;I am humbled. All that I have done so far,I learnt from you guys here.Thank you very much for helping me to go that extra bit further ;) !
    Jason,you asked what's next on the bench.Well,after considering for a while,I now give you "Postcard From The Front",a WW 1 figure vignette of a German trooper taking the opportunity to write home during a lull period in the fighting.The figure is made from my usual Hornet head,Dragon plastic bits,paper clips,Historex hands and feet,and 2-part epoxy putty combination.The pipe is made from putty and a bit of a dress pin.Hope you guys like it.As alwaqys,all comments are appreciated,Thanks and cheers !

    Hey Kenneth,

    Looking nice so far. I like the pipe! I think this is a really hard thing to do in this scale. I look forward to seeing more of it.

    Thanks Joe ! What I did was snip a bit of the sharp end off the dress pin,bent it up to a slight "S" shape and fit it,sharp-end first,into the figures mouth.The bowl was made with some putty and the end of a pin to shape it. HTH.Will post more soon.Cheers !
    Kenneth :lol:

    Looking great so far Kenneth! Very interesting subject, you don't see many WW1 German figures wearing the feldmutze. And sporting a goatee too! Nice touch (y)

    Were you planning on him beeing barefoot? That would be neat to see him barefoot in a flooded trench section writing a letter while his boots dryed out. What do you think?

    Jason,my friend,thank you ever so much for the positive feedback :lol: ! I picked the Feldmutze as I was inspired by your Franco-Prussian War vignettes and this is the closest that I dared venture into this era for the moment.Thanks for suggesting the "barefoot" idea;I never really thought of it,it's GREAT (y) ! I've already incorporated it into my figure (I hit the "zone" again !) Do check out my updated post and tell me what you think of it ! Cheers .
