    True. Here's a wish list, just a random few that I think of right now:

    - Belgian infantry 1940
    - Belgian Chasseur Ardennais 1940 large scale
    - Dutch, Danish and Norwegian infantry 1940
    - German infantry 1939-1940 large scale
    - German fallschirmjager as at Eben-Emael 1940 in large scale
    - Polish uhlan 1939 (now available from Jaguar or Warriors I think)
    - More British paratroopers in large scale are also needed! And some RAF bomber command figures.

    And I could go on and on and on.....

    Guys, Here is where my Little Hand bust is at. I need a little work on the eyes, the hair also needs a bit of refining. Aside from that I have the the neckerchief star shaped slide/broach and earings to do. I like it from this angle, while the full on frontal view is a likeness disaster (your right Quang,second time around is not always better). Once he's complete I'll post more pics, even that horrible frontal view.~Gary

    I have to admit that it's not the exact likeness of Little Hand but nevertheless it can stand by itself as a swell character bust. (y)

    One of the more difficult things that every 'creator' have to deal with is knowing when to stop! We have a saying for it: "Le mieux est l'ennemi du bien" which can be roughly translated as 'better can be worse'. :lol:

    Anyway, check out the knot on the scarf which should be more 'elaborate' than on your picture. I know you've not finished with the brooch, but still...

    Quang, Thanks for the critiques, and your saying could not be more right. I have not added the knot yet, and may still try to "tweek" the face to get a better likeness, heck, I may even do it again later on knowing I'm capable of doing a better job. This has been an invaluable learning tool. As for who it is, I already call it an "old Indian dude".~Gary
