    Hi Guys ,

    Thought I would share whats running alongside Dupin on my bench , its a ECW cavalier sculpted by Rob Lane for El Greco Miniatures , scale about 1/10th , resin and painted using my normal Acrylics and Water Soluable Oils from Cobra

    Replaced the feathers from the kit and added a couple of "tokens" pinned to the hat
    lots to do but its a fun piece , love his face as with all of Robs sculpts full of character.

    Collar and lacework now also done

    Thanks for looking in

    I didn't know there were any of these still around Kev! I like what you are doing to him and the additions work well too.

    Hi Guys,

    ADVICE and your thoughts needed !!!

    Currently this has a light sky blue lacing ...does it work or would it look better with another colour ( not too keen on white! )

    Pics from iPad so hope they are viewable !

    Thanks for any input ..off for a coffee

    Silver woven thread would be nice.Difficult to achieve though.
