I'm looking forward to seeing him with your paint on Peter! He's wasted many a year lying in my 'Grey Army'!

You've made a very good start and it's good to seeing you tinkering wih things.

Wouter - I probably will depict him as an old soldier: grey moustache etc.

Peter.

Yeah, good idea, the Old Guard are the real cool guys. You gonna give him an earring as well?

Looking forward to see the first dashes of paint!

Cheers

Andy. All thanks to you, and I have quite enjoyed the 'tinkering' believe it or not.

Wouter - Really struggling with the head, and at the moment he has reddish hair rather than grey - . he''s got plenty of wrinkles though. May have a go at an earring.....

Peter.

Here's the head:

I still want to tidy up the cords, but I've had enough for today. I've added an earring as suggested by Wouter.

Peter.

Hi Peter

Very nice of Andy to send you this. Well done to you for figuring out a way to make him complete. The new drum ring sorts that problem. Good luck with the tensioning strings.

Head looks great. I too like the 'lived in', 'seen it all' look.

That was fast teeth 2. The head looks amazing Peter. And Jim says it nicely, a face full of experience in life.

Cheers

Hi Peter,

Yes Sir, I'm still alive and have missed so much of your fine work. The W word has me over occupied at the moment. IAA, people on vacation and coming home dog tired hasn't helped.

Anyhow, I must say 'Congrats' on the bust for Richard. And even more 'Congrats' for the top secret hush, hush for the mag. You truly deserve it Sir.

So now you come along with this...You seem to really be having more fun (ok, a bit of stress too) than the law allows! Good for you my friend. Top drawer on the face and the headgear. He does have that 'I've seen it all' look in his eyes too! Fantastic...

Prost

Allen

Many thanks chaps. One of those occasions where I spent too long working on him and felt he was looking worse and worse. Looks a bit better after walking away for a couple of hours.

Allen - Good to hear from you - sorry that work is taking it's toll. I am enjoying myself at the moment, though the bit of extra exposure has put the pressure on - suddenly everything looks terrible. Still, we can only do our best....

Peter.
