Re: Richard Burton from the Desert Rats.

You always grab the essence of the character. Which is rare among the sculptors who do the "professional" figures.

Re: Richard Burton from the Desert Rats.

Be nice to see a sculpt of Newton to go along with Burton. Newton played Burton's character's old school teacher
