Not for me either, but I don't think we will get any more out of him. As long as he promise to get back to his real work (yes, the other life is just a hobby!) I can take that.

ADM has shown us a picture of himself in similar garb years ago at the Cannes Film Festival during the aircraft carrier project.

ADM has also shown himself to be a modeler of exceptional talent and singular ambition. It's quite incredible what he is able to accomplish!

Yes, it's like you're there ! :-D

The Cannes film festival is nearly finished, just two days left, many professionals are already leaving, I'm seeing as many films as possible so not much time left for photos but here are a few more !

The Martinez Hotel, it's my headquarter during the Festival !

I went back to my long project! :-D
all the 240 Strelets Russian grenadiers in winter dress are cleaned and primed, now I'm starting with a hundred Russian militia from HAT, I will make a final count of all the figures for this project only when I will start painting them because I will add more of them during the process.

Can you please turn the newspaper so we can read it in the mean time we look at your figures, please? Looking at them upside down is not good for my neck! :mrgreen:

Great to see you're back on track! :thumbup:

Agree with Peter! I am very happy I never got the idea to paint as many figures as you do! I am perfectly satisfied watching yours!

Those Russian grenadiers don't look bad at all when primed.

Of course not, Dalibor. I really like the Strelets range of the 1812 Russian winter campaign! In the first row the french cuirassiers.

@ ADM

Concerning the Russian Militia: the set is a combination of a lot of different units from different parts of Russia. Do you want to create all these different groups of men?

Jan, it is too harsh to say I hate Strelets figures, but I didn't liked them for sure. Although now I'm thinking of getting some Russian Grenadiers and French Cuirassiers in winter dress.
