    Fixed all the three pieces together and while doing so noticed a few touch-ups required so once the glue has dried I shall get my tiny hairy stick out and do that, then he is finished.

    Hi Geoff

    Good on you , really nice resuit , yellow looks spot on as does the shako

    This would look really good slightly extended and with a drum

    It's a great bust for conversion to other Regiments

    Thanks for the SBS ....you've enjoyed it , well...."so have we !

    Hope there's another WIP on the horizon

    Happy benchtime

    Thank you Nap, I don't know when the next one will be as I buy them when I can and that was my last one and we have a couple of expensive months coming up, but I do have some 1/35th figures in stock from my modelling days at the Tank Museum so a small diorama could very well be on the cards.

    I would love to see the drummer in a different colour, I think Bob said he might do a couple, here's hoping.

    Cheers

    That's very nice Geoff. The yellow looks just right and not too bright for dyed cloth. I like it very much! Regards Pete

    Excellent piece of work Geoff - the face has the look of a young man, which is what most of these drummers were.
    Coatee & lacework looks superb.

    Great result Geoff, I will definitely get myself a drummer for this colour scheme, but I think I will search for a 120mm or bigger full figure as I also like the idea of having the drum in the piece, thanks for the inspiration.

    Many thanks Guys.
    I was pleased with the way the yellow mix turned out too Pete, Katjuscha and Philip.

    Thanks for your greetings from Spain Mike and pleased you like him.

    Thanks Chris, I tried to achieve that look and pleased you could see that. I was pleased with the lace especially after I couldn't manage to get the coloured bands on it.

    Thanks Terry I do think I have seen a full figure of him but scale and make I have no idea, but I accept Nap will know.

    Cheers All

    Great work! I'd echo Nap on the drum- it would be a nice add on, or even as a base.

    I like painting work in general, maybe a little more contrast in the face?
    But that is the taste of the painter himself.

    Another very nice finish Geoff. Echo all the comments re the colour scheme, the yellow in particular has worked really well.
