    The impetus for this figure was a photo (below) of a reenactor dressed in the uniform of a Hanoverian Rifles Sergeant. I loved the way the yellow sash contrasted with the dark green uniform and the horse emblem on his shako.
    The figure is 54mm (1:30), sculpting in MagicSculp and Bees Putty.
    Below are some snaps of the initial stages of the sculpting of the figure. They are shown in reverse order:

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Scotty, Bees Putty is an oven baked clay.

    Hi Rob

    Apologies thought I'd posted , nice to see how a sculpt happens from the reference to the pose in the garden ( you have understanding neighbours ! )

    Particularly like the flash of yellow he will have as well as the shako plate

    Following with interest
