    Here's the latest 120mm Flat I'm working on, it's taken from the painting by Kevin Lyles of a Major in the Royal Army Medical Corp attached to the Paras at Ajax Bay in the Falklands.
    Still in it's early stages yet with lots more blending and detail to be added and
    if it looks a little discoloured or patchy that's because I'm experimenting and using a 50/50 mix of Super Sculpey Firm Grey and Sculpey Living Doll. A lot smoother and softer to work with however I'll reserve judgement until it's finished.
    Many thanks for looking and I welcome any comments and critique.
    Cheers Ken

    I agree that is going to be a challenge, would love to see how it is achieved by some of the great painters on here.

    Apart form the head it is looking very good Ken, not a subject often covered in the Falklands war. I think during this period the Major would of been a member of Parachute Clearing troop(PCT) 6 Field force Ambulance, later to be designated 23 Para Field Ambulance after the Falklands war.
    Carl might have more confirmation on this :)

    I think it's probably Jim Ryan, I'm guessing he would be attached to the PCT from the CMH.
    Don't you just love abbreviations?;)

    Hi Roger can't answer your first question as I don't want to incriminate Mr Barton :D
    and in answer to your second question Carl should know that one although you could try this.:D

    Small point, it was deployed as 16 Field Ambulance, having changed from 6FFFA earlier in the year- it was my first unit- a "penal unit"!!

    Rob thanks for looking in . The description by the artist is as follows :-
    Pictured here is a surgeon who is a major in the Royal Army Medical Corps, attached to the paras at the refrigeration plant at Ajax Bay.
    This makeshift hospital was known as ' the red and green life support machine' as it attended to the red -beretted paras as well as the green-beretted commandos.
    He is wearing an olive green heavy duty woolen pullover with blackened majors crowns on the rank slides and a para brevet on the right sleeve, lightweight trousers, standard issue DMS army boots and puttees. He has a surgeon's protective face mask around his neck and a disposable plastic apron.

    Cheers Ken
