    Great Figure, like the small extra parts you have made. Just that little bit more to be different.

    Looking very good Nap, an excellent array of medals, pin badges and his passes. I think this has to be one of the best busts that Pavol has done.

    Nice work Kev. (the attached picture is not necessarily relevant here bit might be of interest. It shows
    94 year old Harry Billinge - a local chap socially isolating on the beach here yesterday. He fiercely waved
    away anyone who approached within bayonet range !)
