    Hi everyone

    I have also started this from Pilipili ..it's a bust ...of course !!

    Always liked Pilipil busts ..I like the scarring on the face on this one

    Very little prep needed , just attach the tassel to the headwear , slight sanding

    Primed in black , now basecoating it ...it has a medal on it already !

    Here's some reference pics

    The box-art from Le van Quang

    They were very good fighters ....those scars weren't from shaving ! ....a traditional thing !

    Cheers ...you should get it on the bench ...you coukd do a later version as well quite easily


    Cheers Bob ...not sure about knocking them out ...getting lots of pieces basecoated ready ! .......getting distracted by what I find and what arrives on the doorstep

    Your doing nicely as well


    Happy bench-time to all

    Stay safe

    Hi folks

    This one is now making its way very close to the bench ....going to do the flesh first with that distinctive scarring

    Was thinking of moving the medal .......still thinking !

    Happy benchtime

    Interested to see how the flesh/scarring turns out. Another great subject choice.
