To premise that it is not a job step step...... and sure I will jump some passages.... you memory moreover that my English is still much insufficient one therefore will have also the way makes you 4 LOL.

The Subject is a Oplita that has fought to the Termopili is in 54 milimeter. and this piece will be produced from Romeo Models will be introduced to september to the Euromilitaire (Folkestone 2006) but I not to know with emergency the escape on the market. Thanks to our Friend Costas Rodopoulos in order to have marked this subject to me from and in order having to me supplied the documentation. Thanks also Stefano Castracane for its historical support.

Good vision to All and naturally is appreciate the comments MAB

Fascinating to see how a master modeler works.

Just out of curiosity, how many figures do your employer expect you to sculpt a year?

Thanks Maurizio.

Hi Costas - Markus - Rudi - Alguhan - Jesper and Rick

Thanks a lot for your acceptance and your comments......

For Jesper - how many pieces make I in a year?
for the producer..LOL will be always little......
have not never made the account...
but it considers that also I every a lot suffer the
crisis from the artist and must stop some day
of the times study also the documentation
the times change based on the Scale or to the Subject
however in average I make one 54 milimeter in 22 days......
and one 75 milimeter in 45 days...... and some time
joint also some piece for collection.

For Rick - thanks for to have appreciated my job on Photoshop.....
my old trade was the Graphic Designer the possession
made for 20 years and tries to remain in training... LOL

well Maurizio you have raised the bar very high indeed - It was a pleasure to look at your wonderful master and the ways you did certain stages- a very thoughtful gesture to those learning the craft- I am still in my "student' years but as they say the more you look and watch masters like yourself and others the more you learn
Thanks again and please be patient with us mere mortals
God Bless Ian

Hi IAN
Excuse for my delay in the answer I have appreciated a lot your comment. I learn something every day... I am that he comes from my experiences is that comes from others. This is a world where the experimentation is to the base of the creation.... therefore to observe is fundamental.
