    Hello all,

    Here is my latest: a Voortrekker, dutch colonial in South Africa, fighting the British in 1842.

    The figure is scratchbuild with a Latorre head and some commercial parts.
    Everything is painted with Humbrols

    Also a little preview of my next figure: a private of the 61th foot during the Indian Mutiny.

    Hello all,

    Thanks for the positive reply!
    Marc, thanks, it has been a while since the Antwerp show in 2009, it was an eyeopener and inspires me again and again.

    JW, I will bring it to Joure!

    Edouard, I know Humbrol is a bit of oldskool, but it gives me the tones and effects i want to achieve best.

    thanks again,
    Robert Jan
