    Coming along beautifully now, shame about the slouch hat but he does look good in the helmet.

    Thanks Simon , was a shame about the slouch but a good learning curve ...staying positive

    Working on the water bottle going for a very dark blue cover as in references I've seen , will be a good contrast to the Kharki

    Here's a couple of brighter pics under a light hence the shine on leather

    Off to pack ready to go in morning ! .....impossible to fit any painting stuff in car .......Carole has so much clothes in cases ...me I have got a small hold-all....lol

    Better lighting, the blending on the khaki is so subtle, the contrast from the badges and water bottle will be good. Have a good time.

    I agree with Simon, the khaki looks great, lovely subtle but effective work. Hopefully you will have this done for Yeovil......?

    Looks good, for the wood you'll need wood grain paint, made by the same people who make tartan and camouflage paint.

    Some great reference for the weapon (byswordandmusket.co.uk)

    This is a original Lee Enfield Mk 1 did 1898

    There is a sling on it as a field modification ....which I am tempted with !

    Nice piece of kit, I've shot with the later WWII version, they kick like a mule. Good fun though.
