    Thanks Raymond ;
    These i got cast and were a runner up in a V&A Museum competition here in UK. These are bronze .You can use many different chemicals and oxide pigments ,applied with heat to alter colours . A still of Penelope cruz in Captain Corellis Mandolin was the inspiration here . Shame she didnt model for me !

    Here's a piece i started January 1st and is just about done . I always find it hard to finish ! This one i modelled for reversing kit then checking against the mirror ! i got all my original kit on, M36 tunic ,trousers etc !

    Most of my work i will mould then cast into Bronze at a foundry . Height 260mm.

    Somehow I would like to see this soldier as a part of a group. I honestly love your work. Can it be seen in an exhbition somewhere?

    Admirably Yours

    I know what you mean Jan . I did a group of 5 VI Armee lads as prisoners that ive sold several times (Bernie Ecclestone bought edition 5/9 !)
    Its just with the rifleman you see now , hes very much for the military enthusiast (like me !) and takes ages ! I started a group of Polius but never finished them .
    I really like Finnish army subjects too !
    Il keep you posted as to where to see.

    Thanks all !
    milliput is well known in UK modelling circles , its a very forgiving material, soft to model, responds to a brush with water , drys very hard so can be carved and sanded . Its a medium you can model like clay , then carve like wood ! Ideal to contrast materials like the smooth rigid lines in equipment against the delicate skin and bone or folds in cloth . Main danger is not to overdue the sanding carving - you can kill the life in the modelling . Im not trying to produce a surface to paint so its good to leave the marks of fingers etc , more interesting when cast in metal !
    My rubber moulds are long lasting as i only pour hot wax . This wax is cast into bronze at a foundry .
    in the us its advertised as mighty putty by the late billy mays not tried it having brought a stash of milliput over with me but it looks to be a good replacement
