Here is Model Cellarís 1/9 resin bust, In The Trenches, a corporal in the Royal Fusiliers in 1915, sculpted by Carl Reid. The kit is assembled pretty much out of box, though I had to cut off and replace the grenadier emblems on the epaulettes. The one on the right was passable, but the one on the left was an indistinguishable blob. (Surely, a casting error.) I replaced them with two grenadier emblems from a Historex sprue. The base is from John Jeffries.
