    Hello

    Some photos of our 2 x figure 120mm vignette sculpted by Carl Reid and painted by Gerard Rubio.
    It depicts an incident at Gettysburg 1863 when the 6th Wisconsin Regiment engaged the 2nd Mississippi resulting in a desperate fight for the battle flag.

    Kits available from www.mitchesmilitarymodels.co.uk

    Thanks
    Ross

    Wow that is a nice piece of work. One of my favorite pieces from Bill Horan. Recall seeing it on display at the 1st World Expo in Washington DC, Tyson's Corners, VA back in 91. Carl Reid certainly captured the likeness and the action! (y) Wow, would love to see this painted up version in person. Thanks for sharing! Nicely done piece of work! Thanks for sharing!
