    I have now just about completed this latest project which I started back in Aug,i just have to stain and varnish the base and fit the appropriate name plates and that will be that ! ;)

    When I started out I wanted to replicate something in this anniversary year of the great war and as I said in previous posts this was the pair of busts I always wanted to paint,i must say I really enjoyed the whole thing from start to finish,they are a teriffic pair of busts,well casted by paul at Model Cellar and brilliantly sculpted by Carl Reid.

    I have now fitted both to the finished scene and I'm very happy with the result,its turned out exactly as I had planned it which I'm really pleased about.

    I wont go into all the construction and painting details as I have already mentioned thois in previous postings.

    I would just take this oppourtunity to thank everyone who has viewed and comented on this project and your continued support throughout,its very much appreciated.

    I hope you enjoy the photos of the finished result (y)

    My money is on the German ..... Grenade beats stick with ugly metal end.

    Nice job.....no make that a superb job in painting them ....I am not sure about the lanterns in night time trench clearing....they would screw with your night vision.

    Excellent set and painting Brian, top notch job my friend...(y)
    Are they brothers?
    I think that C. Reid's bust sculptures are among the most popular in the hobby, I understanding that each artist has his own style, but IMO the latest releases, doesn't matter if they are English soldiers or American Indian, has all the same face, .....
