    Dear Friends of Planet Figures

    From little for time many members of this forum
    they have asked to me to realize a SBS of my job.....
    unfortunately my time is always much limiting
    (are chased from production...... LOL)
    therefore I have thought to realize a small SBS
    where story little of my constructive process.

    One Promise is a Debit

    To premise that is not a job step step... like those
    of Bravo Gary who has an enormous patience......
    and sure I will jump some passages.... you memory
    moreover that my English is still much insufficient
    one therefore will have also the way makes you 4 :lol:

    The Subject is a Oplita that has fought to the Termopili
    is in 54 milimeter and this piece will be produced from
    Romeo Models will be introduced to september to the
    Euromilitaire (Folkestone 2006)
    but I not to know with the escape on the market.

    Thanks to our Friend Costas Rodopoulos in order to have
    marked this subject to me from and in order having
    to me supplied the documentation.
    Thanks also Stefano Castracane for its historical support.

    Good vision to All and naturally is appreciate the comments.



    Salute MAB :)

    Hi Mauritzo
    It is fascinating to see a master at work. You can learn a lot. The only danger is that they can make it look much easer than it really is, thanks for the insight.

    Maurizio, MY PIECE OF CAKE!! Due to the fact, that I love your work I always wondered, how the heck he is doing that! I admire the masters of human anatomy (my monsters did not care about that so much, but...) and I hope, some day, I will master this, too!!

    Super work!

    Well done Maurizio. Not only is it informative, but it's well presented. I always like to see what other sculptors use for tools.
