    Hello Rob,
    This is truely lovely work, all the details are superb, and the colour of the bronze suits his uniform and the environment he fought in 'Mud'. All those months of work have been well worth your effort a masterpiece.

    Heres pictures showing the plastiline original coated in shellac and broken up into more readily mouldable pieces , with mould barriers added. The green figures are the hollow poured waxes assembled with pouring runners and air risers added. this is the stage where i give it over to the foundry.
