Hi All,
It's been a while and I hope everyone is in good order. I have a lot on at the minute but have managed to push these two projects on a bit. The post battle Rorke's Drift bust is just about completed an hour or two's work left. The 24th officer bust is started and I plan to put a lot of hours into him next week.
Hope you enjoy.
cheers

Hi John, 90th & Sergio,
Thank you lads for the nice words, I must I'm very pleased the way these two are turning out. I actually think the larger photo's lets them down a bit, but my photography is shocking at best.

As soon as I fill my other three shelves in my display cabinet who knows!

cheers

Hey!! Richie. Why not rub our faces in it. Very Happy Namely with the last three photo's. I see you still have that Lancer in the back ground. Must say it kind of off-sets the rest, makes the display look untidy. As always I'm willing to help, I have room in my cabinet, I'm even willing to send a courier to you to collect it.

PS. Brillient work!

Hi littlehand,
Thank you, I'll tell you what, I've got about 5 projects to clear, hopefully I can have these out of the way by the end of the year. I'm also planning on making a big piece with about 15 figures in it, this I will start next year.
Also just for you guys next year I will make a second 17th mounted Lancer and put it up for sale on here. Probably sealed bids and I will send all the money raised to Bill for his museum in Brecon. How does that suit you.
cheers
Richie

Hi Richie .
Mate , absolutely fantastic work there my friend . Littlehand is correct , that Lancer certainly seems out of place as do the 24th Busts , I've a big heart and happy to help out , if you run out of room in your display cabinet, I'll certainly make some room in mine to help. Did I hear the word '' Auction '' ? , count me in , I love em ! . Richie how much would it cost you to make a set with the R.Artillery attempting to save the guns ? . That's one of my favourite prints ! . Well done , magnificent displays , you should be extremly proud of your efforts .
Cheers 90th. Very Happy  Salute

I agree with littlehand that Lancer does seem a bit out of place. Love the sound of an auction for a new 17th Lancer . Will have to disable 90th's PC first !!

Great work Ritchie

I like your thinking Springbok - the only problem is he has seen details of my medal collection and as such I am open to retaliation !! Anyway 90th will be upset enough after Geelong got beaten at the weekend...

Poor old 90th not a very good weekend - somehow I think he will feel the loss of his AFL team more - after all beating the Aussies at Rugby isnt a big thing these days - the Lions did it - blimey even the Scots did Very Happy

Hi Sergio.
Yes , I was most distressed to be beaten by them at home ! Still dont know how it happened , but , we did play poorly and lost it ourselves ! . Not worried about Rugby , didnt even know Australia played a match , I dont even think it was on TV in the AFL mad States . Sergio my friend be very nice , or retaliation may rear it's very expensive head ! LOL LOL. I'm going again this week , off to the MCG Friday night to see us do Port Adelaide , I dont think they've beaten us since 2007 . Surely they cant do it this week !! No  No ....................Can they ? Sad

Alright then;
I don't know you lot....all this talk of food is making me peckish. Can anyone provide the latest exchange rate for sheep's eyes!

90th - as for the R.A. piece I roughly costed this for parts a while back and I think it was pushing £700! If I remember right the team of six horses was pushing £300. I did not persue it as I could only fit a team of 4 in my display cabinet.

I will definitely make the mounted Lancer, I'll see if I can knock out another couple of figures and any money raised I will send to Bill. I have always wanted to do this, so might move these up in priority before my big project.

cheers
Richie

Here is the Britains one for those who may not have seen it .

I actually have the Britains RA model - it is spectacular - be warned it comes in a massive box - no way of hiding it from the Mrs - If you add the other three RA sets and a couple of running 24th and chasing Zulu is makes for a wonderful scene.

Good man Ritchie - thats really generous of you to give up your time in this way happy to bid on the lancer and offer my trading skills to convert any stange antipodean bids into real money:D

Hi Pete and Impi,
Thanks

Right time to put my money were my mouth is. I will auction now my 17th Lancer out of my display cabinet. Highest offer wins and all proceeds to Bill at the Brecon museum, the winner pays the P & P.

I'll just have to make my self another one sometime.

24th Busts Empty

Hi impi,
No reserve, highest offer gets him and what ever money comes in will go to Brecon. Without my time there is approx. £60 worth of parts alone in that model and it took me on and off about 3 months to make. He is a one off unique piece.
cheers
Richie
