We had a thread a while back on OSS about " British Hero " heads, and Paddy Mayne seemed to be top of the popularity list.

For US & European readers not aware of him , he was one of the founder leaders of the SAS , and the most decorated British soldier of WW2.

Here's progress so far : the announcement of the DML SAS jeep and the figures to go with it has acted as a spur.

I decided to keep him looking tidy , since a beard is easy to add , but impossible to remove. This way people can finish him as they wish.

First the soft clay head :

Now the head fired and underpainted :

Then the finished painted job, approximately clothed :

He's a bit shiny , but I shall flat this off. I always paint my heads before sending them for casting ( doesn't seem to upset the mould making process ) since it is the best way of checking that they look OK.

Not available yet : he will be put in the next mould, but I have to make some other heads to go with him. Probably a couple of months before I have stock .
I repeat : NOT READY YET !
