Trumpeter, Grenadier a Cheval, 1805
Another monster finds it's way on to my bench! This figure I've admired for some time. Mike Blank did a wonderful job posing and sculpting this fella. The scale is 120mm and is a massive chunk of resin. I had to do some surface filling...More than I cared to do. I made my own cords using Duro (green stuff) because the cords supplied were too stiff, and I don't have the patience to heat and manipulate finiky bits. My plan is to paint it in sections, starting from top to bottom. Unfortunately, this guy will see more of the cabinet than the workbench. It's one of those projects that has to be picked at.
