    John,
    What's wrong with it? It looks great.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. They are most appreciated.

    Mostly, I'm not happy with the blending and definition of the flesh. I had difficulty with the border, and detected some flaws in the sculpted finish after the painting had begun in earnest. I guess mostly I'm trying to achieve a higher standard. Don't get me wrong, I like it. If I hated it I would redo it. I just don't love it. I like to get that figure painter's high like I get when something comes off better than you expected (like the Michael Roberts 33rd Alabama).

    John, Very nice paintjob. Wish I knew what a "painter's high" was like. I'm lucky if I know what a paintbrush even looks like. One day I will start to paint my scratchbuilt "gray army". Again very nice John, I enjoy seeing your work.~Gary

    Thanks all. It's a project I've been wanting to do for a while.

    Gary, I would like to see some painted work coming from your bench. It seems that someone (Larry Lee?) told me they had seen some and that it was very good.
