    Not sure about the wisdom of adding the lanyard and ID. There's a lot of detail on there already and it would be a shame to obscure the medals, awards and badges for something so mundane.

    Your call, of course

    Thanks for your comment , I would have it hanging just below the front centre so nothing would be hidden .....going to see what it looks like

    Happy benchtime

    Was thinking about this badge/pass as a possible nameplate for the Figure Nap-maybe take off the ship/ferry details but keep the poppy logo, D Day veteran etc

    Hi Guys

    Disaster struck ....primed in Army Painter black as normal , tons of shaking etc .......left to fully dry overnight ....woke up to find all the surfaces were like crackle glaze !! ....much swearing

    Spent the last 3 hours cleaning it all back ...lost a medal and badge but replacing now !

    Suppose that's life

    Happy benchtime to all

    Shame re the medals and the issues with the undercoat Nap but sure you’ll have it looking as new in no time. Looking forward to seeing the painting bring him to life.
