    Hi Guys,I have just finished painting this 1/9th scale bust of a Seaforth Highlander,it was sculpted by David Ridley. I have been very privileged to have had the opportunity to paint it.David is going to have the bust in production soon, and it will be available as a resin kit.I very much enjoyed painting this bust and can recommend to anyone interested in it.The bust has alot of character about it.I hope you like the way I have painted him and look forward to comments on him.Kind regards John. :)

    I like the sculpting of the figure too, nice melancholic expression on the face.

    A very good face that comes alive. Like the shading and highlighting of the webbing as well.

    A great piece of work. Looks like a 2nd battalion man, iirc the white "C" was worn for the 1st July 1916 attack on the Somme by 4th Division.
    I hope this will be available in UK

    Hey Hohn,

    I have to agree with the rest, both a nice sculpt and a even better paint job. That face has lots of character as John stated above and I totally agree.

    Top stuff John. Some excellent skin tones there mate. Also well done on the uniform. Those khaki tones look simple to the untrained eye, but I know how difficult they are to render well. Nice one!

    Hi Guys,many thanks for all the compliments on the bust.I will check with David Ridley on the release of the bust kit and see if he is putting it out through his own name or another company.Roger you are correct with your reference to what Battalion,Division etc..... that the highlander belongs.There is good reference in Osprey men at Arms series:British Battle Insignia 1914-18.I know that David Ridley is going to be very happy with the response to his bust as I am.Many thanks again guys .kind regards John :)
