    The figure is not yet complete, and I imagine you must be curious about the end result, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.


    I completely removed all superficial details from an old figure of a Dutch Lancer that I originally sculpted for New Marengo.

    I started with the legs, carefully reconstructing the trousers, trying to create folds as reasonably as possible, albeit it is difficult to see in the photos.
    I repositioned and reshaped the arm and the back of the hand.

    I used the same head that I originally sculpted for the Dutch Lancer, I tried to keep the same expression originally sculpted.
    I removed the hair and the sideburns and repositioned the head.

    Many of you are asking your selves why did I choose a piece with only one arm, the answer to that question , simply put, is less work…

    Goodbye for now, in a few days you will see the veteran of the Crimean war come to life, stay tuned for part two.


    Ciao
    Stefano.

    Nice one Stefano...I'm looking forward to you sculpting the uniform and details so we can get an idea of how he will look...I know this is a favourite period of yours so he should develop into a very interesting character.

    Thank you for the translation Roc..

    Roy.
