    Hi Guys,

    Some pics of my latest conversion from an original from Mick's Micks. This has undergone a certain amount of surgery, purely to change the regiment and not because of the quality of the original!

    I have removed a lot of the resin to form an undercut rear and have removed the coat under the belt to make it more in keeping with my others. Still much to do, I may revisit the chinscales with some finer wire - it was all I had at the time. The plume was increased in height/bulk and other mods and additions are clearly visible in Milliput or Duro.

    This is (hopefully!) the last of the family commissions, representing my uncle Dave on dismounted sentry duty during the Coronation in 1953.

    Thanks for looking,

    Steve(y)

    Thanks Kev - Im hoping to have somewhere to paint soon - Im in the middle of a garage conversion at the moment, so we have no electricity to that part of Leadley Towers, so difficult to paint in the dark! As soon as we've put the window in next week, the building inspector can come to have a look, then hopefully sign it off and we can crack on to get it all done! It seems to have taken forever.... and the painting backlog is building up!!(y)
