    Thank you mate for all your support during this long build, much appreciated. I’ve really enjoyed the voyage of discovery working in 1/16 scale only my second time. The next project will be converting Romans into Jacobites, Steve from Reeedees has already been helping me with that. The comp sounds interesting and I will support if nothing else to encourage others to enter.

    An outstanding piece of work. It just goes to show what can be done with time and effort and a fair bit of skill without breaking the bank. I must have missed out how you did the helmet crests - always tricky to do.

    First rate job.

    Thank you mate, I couldn’t have made this without your support and intervention. The replacement heads from Reedees transformed the model and have helped to tell the story I wanted to depict, for that I’m eternally grateful.

    Thank you Pete, that is very kind of you. The thing I love about modelling is the community who know the effort it takes, appreciate that effort and respond to the art that not only motivate but encourages others. For me modelling is art, it has an impact on the viewer unlike anything else and transcends what money cannot buy, for that we should all be grateful.

    Thank you Mike, the wife shaped accountant won’t let me break the bank and what I can’t afford I try to make. For me these Miniart kits are like finding a seam of gold and will be using them for my next project set in the 18th century.
