    Now back off holiday and back to the bench,been doing some work to the haversacks on two of the busts,quite happy where I'm at with this,i added 2 drinking cups attached to the haversack straps,this was common with the paras to do this and I thought id add it in to my pieces.
    There's not much left to do now with these except decide on the final backdrop before the piece is complete.

    Can never get bored of seeing your work.

    Well done Brian, everything looks great from where I am sat (y)

    What mix did you use for the beret mate, looks like you nailed it colour wise which is refreshing ?

    Cheers

    Nice..did they jump with the drinking cups? Wouldn’t the wounded one have lost the chute by the time he was bandaged up? Just curious...

    I think you are looking at the 37 patt back pack and not the chute

    Yes, but unsure about being allowed to jump with the mugs hanging loose.
