    Another one of those "must have's" for me, Young Miniatures 1/10th British Lewis Gunner bust from the latter part of WW1.

    I think the face is good and shows the stress these guys went thorough with his sore eyes and dark shadow under them, and this is what I tried to show with my painting

    This is a great looking bust Geoff and a great start, but I must say I don't think any soldier worth his salt would leave a life saving piece of equipment such as a gasmask swinging about so it could get snagged and ripped?..wouldn't that be tucked away safely in the bag ready for use?
    just going by my own experience with breathing apparatus, you always looked after your facemask.
    Just a point of interest that I felt needed to be said.

    Cheers

    Thank you Ronaldo, I still have to give him a slightly need a shave look when the paint is dry.

    Thanks Jim, and I agree with you, and a good point made, just a shame the other hand was not holding it.

    Many thanks Bob and Marc, he is certainly a lovely smooth moulding and the parts fit together so well.
