    Hi All,

    Just finalising the above figure. I would like to thank Dan Morton for his very kind assistance with pics of the stretcher. 54mm scratchbuilt.

    Hi Kenneth and Dan,

    Thanks for kind comments. Do you guys ever give negative comments?...:)
    Kenneth, we'll be mtg soon I think. Dan has a tremendous fount of knowledge on WWI and I sculpted that stretcher the moment I got the underside pic from him.
    I had the poles done in plastic strips, the legs in brass sheets and the canvas was AB + Duro, rolled thinly on tack, cut to size. A drop of instant glue was applied to the poles which was then glued to the canvas. I then "folded the poles with the canvas and shaped it. I will add more details later and I need to readjust the figure arms to carry the stretcher convincingly. Rgds Victor

    Dear Victor,
    Your figure is really interesting, great action pose and the stretcher looks well done. I'd like to see some additional photos of both from different angles if possible. Yes, I do give negative comments, but mostly in private e-mails. If I can give a helpful critique online I will do that too. PF and forums like them can turn into real flamethrower sessions if the criticism isn't tempered with supportive comments. I believe having the courage to post your stuff online for all the world to see is worthy of somebody taking the time to say - Well done or Hey, you could make it look better by....

    Keep up the good work, Victor!

    All the best,
    Dan
