Boots that's true, I hope that the scarf will add colourful interest to the bust. Paul, don't feel to sure about that brotha. Ian, thank you, it's just the start but's nice to know you like it already.
I painted buckles, clasps, hooks etc. and more of these are for tomorrow. The shoulder patch was painted in enamels as well. The helmet will be given the spades on both sides.
I think Mark is enjoying this one from above and it feels like he's giving me wings to make this a success. I'll never forget this magnificent chap.
