The girl is coming along nicely. I had to glue the cape to the base in the end. The foot alone was just too unstable. But that's OK.
I have gone for the purple and red look that is the Union. As a nod in the direction of the Masons I gave her a blue towel. Something to mop up all the blood that she will be spilling in the future ;-). A lovely model and some great detail.
I have had a look on the web and there are some stunning examples of paint jobs. Truly inspiring.
