    Hi guys ;) ! Here's a re-posting of my current project,a scratchbuilt 95th Rifleman during the infamous retreat to Corunna in 1809. The head is from the new Hornet "bandaged heads" set,the hands and shoes from Michael Roberts,the "rifle blank" from Shenandoah,the wooden tub from Armand P.Bayardi,and the rest I made from 2-part epoxy putty. I've primed the figure and will be painting it next. Thanks for looking and cheers !

    As the scene takes place during winter,I will be adding "snow" to the groundwork after I've painted it.

    The sculpting is excellent Kenneth. The purist may have some issues with the length of the rifle and the shako, but what the heck - there were so many stolen/borrowed items on that retreat that it doesn't matter a damn - still one great looking figure. The Rifles are a special interest of mine so I'm looking forward to seeing this one painted up.

    Kenneth, Some parts of the figure look a bit heavy, i.e. the cuffed trousers. I'd like to suggest with future projects you compare the size of equipment in relation to the figure. The "scaler" here on Pf works wonders for scaling weapons and equipment.~Gary

    Hi Gary :) !
    Thanks for the tips,my friend; I really appreciate it ! This is actually an earlier project of mine,sort of pre-World Expo,hence the heavy trouser cuffs and over-scaled equipment ;) . I've since realised how out of scale some of the parts are,and so have consigned the figure to the back-burner as a "learning experience". Cheers !

    Kenneth, Each piece is a learning experience with something new coming from each one.~Gary
