    Well here it is. I have to go over a few areas with some fine steel wool and clip off some extra brass wire on the cuff flap for the left arm. I plan on mailing him out on Thursday and thought I'd take the pics now while I have time. Thanks for all the kind words, this has been a pretty envolved project, I can't wait too see it in resin.

    The German tanker is the next big project but should go quicker as I do not have to deal with as much where engineering is concerned.

    Given the great stuff that Jason is currently doing he's left me inspired to try my hand at my own Franco Prussian war stuff. Now where did I put those Hornet heads? Thanks again.~Gary

    Guys, I honestly appreciate all the kind words. Though it's a single figure, projects involving all kinds of belts and equipment have never gotten easier to do, they do cause me minor bouts of burnout every now and again, but I've found it's best to face the work and press on. This site has be a tremendous help in seeing this thing through, all of the support and encoragement, not to mention enthusiasm for the art (it is to me) helps to get through slow spots. Thanks again guys.~Gary
