Hi All,
I am running two builds in tandem, yet to start the other but have been getting on with this one over the last week or two.

Firstly let me say a massive public thank you to Petty Officer Tom for providing me great reference material and technical support,top notch Tom cheers Salute Salute Salute

This is a fairly standard conversion from a 24th foot figure, again the scale is 120mm. Basically a new head added with sculpted beard and sculpted Sennet hat. I changed the Martini to one sculpted by Steve Readdie miniatures as these are far superior in quality. I scratch built the 1858 pattern naval cutlass bayonet and scabbard from metal foil, paper and balsa wood.
Altered the tunic and shortened in to a naval jumper and sculpted on a neckerchief. Still lots to alter, resculpt and tinker with before painting, but I hope you get the idea where it is going.
Critique would be most welcome especially if you see anything wrong.
Thanks for looking in
cheers
Richie Salute

Hi 1879graves,
I am glad you like effort so far, the oldest service seems to be a bit overlooked by sculptors for some reason! Maybe because they consider it a niche market? I certainly want to make a couple of others from this period.

Hi littlehand,
I built that bayonet to scale and I know the Martini is cock on to scale too, when I looked at the length it must have been a formidable weapon to get past.

Hi 90th,
Glad you like it so far - I've got a week off at the end of the month, car needs a serive, M.O.T and taxing so while it's in I am going to get cracking on the modelling.

Thanks again all for looking in, will update when I have made some progress Salute

Richie,

Well done! I can’t wait to see the finished product. That cutlass bayonet on the end of the Martini-Henry is indeed a formidable weapon. I bet it made accurate fire a little difficult due to all the weight at the front.

Glad to see you back on the forum. I hope each of your family members is recovering well. I just got the wife back home after over 30 days in the hospital and rehabilitation facility. Now I’m getting to play nurse for awhile.

Hello Tom mate,
Everyone is fine now, except me I've just severley sprained my ankle 2 days ago at work - hey ho. I hope everything goes well for your wife and you be a good nurse. I had my stint sometime back had to use my avatar voice of "Alright then" every now and then because the wife would not sit and rest. Anyway.

It's good to be back, mate. Missed it.

A massive public thank you to your good self by the way, for all your help and advise on this one. Salute

Yes that cutlass on the end of a Martini is very formidable. When I scaled it down and made it, I could not believe the size when I attached it. It's like having a pike.

I will keep you updated.
cheers
Richie

Hello again Richie.

This is brilliant mate, very well done.

Glad all is well within the homestead, and hope that you will soon be walking well again (sprained ankles can be really painful mate, I think we have all had one at some time or other).

Tom.

You are right about that cutlass bayonet, it looks very mean.

Hope all goes well for your good lady wife my friend.

Regards.

Martin. Salute

Hi CTSG,
Thanks for the welcome back. Did you get the Chelmsford figure?

Hi Martin,
Thanks for looking in again mate, bad ankle = more modelling. :lol:

Hi 90th,
Cheers Gary, nice to see you got your letters. Able Seaman Parkhouse mmmmmm. yes I could pin that gong you have to the base when it's finished, just pop it in the post for me and I'll do the rest. :lol: :lol: :lol: I'm sure Tom would side with me, shame to have them separated.

Richie,

The figure is coming along really well. I think you have done a fantastic job. Congratulations!!!!

Richie & 90th,

I don’t think I should take sides in your discussion. I am more inclined to act as a mediator, and as such I believe it is in the best interest of all concerned if both the Naval Brigade figure, and Parkhouse’s medal, were kept safely together – at my home. You can both come see them together at any time you like. Very Happy Very Happy

Hi All,
I have managed to move this one on a bit, put some groundwork down, fitted the accoutrements and done some more painting. Still lots to tweak and improve but I reckon I'm 85% there. I will try and take some better photo's next time.

Wow Richie, this is looking GRRREEAAT!!!

What a talent you have my friend, just brilliant mate, P.O.Tom will really like this I should imagine.

Hope your good lady wife is still dusting down MY model of the 24th (2nd Warwickshire) regiment figure that you are kindly looking after for me in your cabinet. :lol: :lol:

And hope still all well in the family, and that your ankle is much better.

Best regards Richie.

Richie,

I can just imagine him alongside his ship mates at the Battle of Gingindlovu. He is calmly loading his Martin-Henry as the men of HMS Shah await the Zulu onrush against their corner of the laager.

Great work there! Job well done! Salute Salute Salute

Hi Martin & Tom,
Apologies for the late reply chaps, but I am finally calling this one finished. Thanks again for all the help and continued support. I have also posted a couple of pics of a 24th Bandsman (Isandlwana) I have just finished converting and mounting up.

Congratulations on the completion of the Naval Brigade figure. A lot of work went into building that one. You are indeed becoming quite the ‘artist’. That Bandsman is looking good also. I am looking forward to your next project.

Richie. Just an idea. Some of us ain't no good at painting these models, I tryed once, ended up in my kids toy box. There are quite a few models I like that I have seen on e-bay, but won't buy because they would just stay in their packaging.

Not sure if you would have the time, but would you consider, posting some rates for painting models purchased by members who are interested in having them painted to your standard by you.

Just a thought.
