    Please note that bust is in the development phase, so many things will be changed or corrected, but the overall look is now visible.

    Thank you Nap, nowadays more and more nazi busts are coming on the market, so i decided to change a little bit that trend...
    Medal - yes, on the photos is still unfinished one -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtuti_Militari - Poland's highest military decoration for heroism and courage in the face of the enemy at war.
    And for those who are looking for the references I also manged to find the scans of original documents from the 1936 with the uniforms ranks straps (midpage -> http://www.cytadela.aplus.pl/forum/viewtopic.php?p=42133) - really interesting :)

    He's looking fantastic so far, Piotr. There's not enough Polish figures out there in my opinion, so nice to see a new one.
    Can't wait to see him complete with Rogatywka. Great work!

    Thank you very much for the kind words - it is encouraging me a lot :).

    Some progress with rogatywka & a lot of adjustments everywhere (straps, buttons, sanding, face, shoulders, new medals, pockets shapes, etc.).

    Rogatywka still needs a lot of work (shapes, strips, belts, final sanding, etc...)
    And I'm going to add a little bit of hair... I wonder which classic haircut would look best... Manchester or Military :D

    Hello,

    it was a real speed sculpting for me (most of my busts are laying unfinished in my workshop for years) - the bust is almost finished (only rogatywka needs more detailing - straps, buttons, buckle and final sanding).

    It was kind of a comeback for me after the long break from sculpting (as usual family, kids, work etc...). It gave me a real relief during last week from a day-to-day sometimes demanding reality.

    Thank you very much for all comments and support! I hope to see it soon painted.
