    Just about finished with this Young Miniatures bust. A couple of quick touch-ups, adjust the shading and highlights in a few areas and add the name plate that is an old spent .303 shell casing...

    Nice Job Dave!
    Love the weathering and mud on helmet. This is one of my favorite busts that Young has put out of late and you nailed it!

    This is a great bust , and you've done it very nicely indeed.
    But I have mentioned this before : the steel helmets at the time of the Somme battles were apple green , not very dark green: that was the late WW2 version.

    You could alway cover it in mud...

    Think you have done an outstanding job Dave. Love the contrast between the almost fresh face (early wash) and the wear on his khaki. Shows up perfectly.
