    Private 21st North Royal Fusiliers 1777

    Post  Ray on Tue Mar 19, 2013 2:45 pm

    This is a 75mm Michel Roberts' kit sculpted by Mike Stelzel (owner of the company) of a Private of the North Royal Fusiliers 1777 & which Steve will kindly Embarassed carry for me this May to be auctioned for the APG cause (Artists Preservation Group) to raise funds for the preservation of American Historical Artifacts & Museums.

    Rocky uphill terrain is cork bark cheers

    The first pic is courtesy of Michael Roberts' website which I saved & pasted here Embarassed I'm sure Mike won't mind at all Twisted Evil but its ethical to give credit when it is due Cool

    Due to the imminent departure of this dude, he's just literally RAN thru ALL the Painting Que Opposition (forgive the PUN it is UNINTENTIONAL HONESTLY Evil or Very Mad ) & placed himself at the FRONT cheers

    Wow Ray, what a production line, really nice looking guy, no wonder he beat the other two in the queue. This is more up your street. If you don;t mind my asking where can i get some of that greenery you used on the base, it looks totally real, tiny florets and all, awesome addition to the base.

    Bri, that is normal static grass, applied over an area of PVA glue & pressed a bit to look plush & not sparse.....the tiny florets you see is "debris" collected from beneath the pavements or rubble walls after rainfalls Laughing & sieved thru a tea strainer over the "grassed" area while it was all wet Shocked

    Now that really explains how pics can be MISLEADING SOMETIMES lol!

    @ Doc Roe....yes he'll be the 1st inline as he must go to the USA with Steve Cool
