    Until I resolve some issues with casting (Ultraviolet), continuing with this:

    Image is small, but I do not mind cause bigger image would not help to get more likeness ;)

    Wrinkles on the upper part of face are too pronounced, I'll tone them down a bit, and add wrinkles to other parts of the face.

    I like it, from what I can see in the photo his eyes are much smaller than what you have as his brow combines into the side of his head more.

    Also his brow overhands his eyes a little bit more to make his eyes feel shadowed by it.

    I also think his cheeks and jaw are less profound, less muscular of a face and more fat and chubby

    Well, in fact I do ;)

    Think that on the picture is this one (M48 according to JNA naming):
    [IMG]

    It was not in use for a long time when the war began (I was firing from this one just once in JNA on target practice in 1990 ).
    But when the war started Croatian army used whatever was available, and this one was not rare to find... We were often equiped with mixture of all kinds of weapons-practically anything that could fire a bullet.
