    Hello,

    I show you my next bust. It is very nice sculpted bust by Carl Reid and produced by Michael Miniatures. It is a Saxon Garde-reiter officer, 1821-1827 Rittmeister 2nd Regiment.

    To take a good picture with all the whites is not easy. I hope you like it. There are more shadows painted as shown on the photo...

    Mike S, Roger, MikeC, John, Karlosfandango and swralph for your comments.
    It is a lovely piece to paint and a highly recommended bust for quality of casting.
    It is still available by Michael miniatures.
