    Hi Planeteers.
    A good while ago I sculpted a bust of a sergeant from the 24th Foot at the Zulu Wars. Made totally from scratch in semi setting Milliput Fine.......Sorry Gra.:oops:
    I read through all of the mistakes from the famous 60's film and incorporated most of them in this piece. One concession was a second service helmet with the tea staining in place.
    I must thank all of the Guys who helped me through this sculpt (you know who you are) and I hope that the painting meets with your approval.
    Very best wishes, Keith

    I don't recall seeing this in the sculpting stage. Don't envy you having to pull off that tropical helmet. It looks great. All in all a very nice personalized piece.

    Keith,

    A very nice looking piece. I agree that helmet looks great. Pity it's not a Guardsman:)

    Hope all is well.

    That's well done. Reminded of the line: "Be quiet there's a good gentleman, you'll upset the lads." Like it a lot.

    Hi Richie
    With your help I have managed to pull it together Mate but not quite where I would have liked it to be.
    Thanks again for your support on this Richie, a true friend indeed.
