This is a 1/16th mostly scratch built model of an Australian infantryman saying goodbye to a fallen comrade. It was inspired by e-mail conversations with Tony Dawe, a medal-winning Australian painter, whose relatives fought in Gallipoli and on the Western Front during WW1. Tony painted the model both with attention to historical accuracy and detail and a marvelous eye for color and took all the photos.

Hope you like it!

All the best,
Dan
