    After spending some time on the back drop I returned to the bust to add a few extras that I like to do with my pieces.
    First of all,the covered shako should have a rear peak which is missing from the kit,for this I just added one from plasticard and magic-sculp.

    I also added the musket sling which I made out of lead-strip which was cut and shaped to suit the pose and fit across the shoulder.
    I also decided to add a wound bandage to the right hand,for this I again used magic-sculp and also added a ammo box from my spares box.
    I also added the water bottle stopper cord from lead wire which was cut and positioned on the canteen.
    A tear was added to the jackets left arm again using magic-sculp and an additional tear was created in the shako cover.
    These don't seem a lot but they give so much to the finished piece r-creating the battleworn campaign look which I like in my pieces.
    Now for the primer :)

    Excellent additions Brian

    Shame though the updates are not all in one thread so we could follow the full work as it progresses

    Brian the little additions here and there not only make this bust look better but they personalise it and then once you do your usual paint job on it you will end up with another little masterpiece for the cabinet, looking forward to following this, you off to a great start.

    Brian, I like the details you added to the bust. They will make him look even more realistic and campaign ready. Can't wait to see him painted up!
    Thanks for Sharing!
