    After Mata Hari i decided to go with FieldMarshal Leopold Prince of Bavaria bust of the UP Miniaturen bust series .

    The bust consists from only 4 pieces (head, torso , hand , base).
    The beautiful sculpture of Ulrich Puchala was casted perfectly from YS Masterpieces . No problems on the resin parts so i assempled used some metal pins soaped with warm water and primed in less than 1 hour in all.

    So lest start seiing this nice bust slowly
