ZULU Part 1. C/Sgt Bourne. aka Nigel Green

Discussion in 'vBench (Works in Progress)' started by mick3272, Feb 3, 2017.

    Greetings.
    This will be my first attempt at a BUST. C/Sgt Bourne as played by Nigel Green in the film Zulu but you all know that anyway.
    Its a 1/9th Scale 200mm V Bust by Pavol Ovecka ( Offo) with the addition of the left arm and Duty book by our very own Jimbo. He will be painted as per the film so not historically correct but we knew this when we started. The Bust is all in one piece so that my bring me some problems so lets wait and see.
    The Bust will be painted in Vallejo acrylics.
    Please feel free to comment and offer advice as to how it could be improved.

    Sorry, couldn't resist that, Jimbo has done a good job and I am sure your painting will be just as good.

    Hi Mike & P.F. fellow modeller 's,
    Just a thought with this bust . Maybe M. M. M. will / could re-vant their bust of Colour / Segt Bourne , to copy your idea ?
    Being like they did with "Pt H . Hook".
    Food for thought maybe .
