Ciao a tutti,

anche quest'anno ho intenzione di rinnovare l'iniziativa benefica iniziata lo scorso anno.

Per quest'anno ho scolpito un soldato coloniale italiano con l'uniforme adottata durante la prima spedizione del 1885.

A breve il soldatino sarà spedito per essere riprodotto in metallo e rinnoverò il sito dove potrete acquistare il soldatino e leggere tutto sull'iniziativa e consultare la storia ed uniformologia relativa.

Spero il pezzo vi piaccia e spero potremo, tutti insieme, rinnovare la splendida iniziativa dello scorso anno.


As last year, I've decided to start a new charity project.

This year, I've sculpted an italian colonial soldier with the uniform used during the first expedition in 1885.

In the next few days the soldier will be sent to be cast in white metal.

I will also renovate the website, where you can read more about the charity, the history, and to be able to buy the figure.

I really hope you like the piece and that, all together we can do something good thanks to our shared passion.



























US tanker with top hat - Life magazine

Ciao a tutti,

While ago, I found on a friend's blog  a picture from the Life magazine, where a tank crew was posing on a Sherman, and among them one of the guys was wearing a top hat.

I then decided to sculpt this project, and while thinking I asked a friend, Vittorio Arena to build the tank wedge.

He did an excellent job, the only issue is with the cast numbers, which we recently find out where different from the one he did, but this will be an easy correction.

Well, since Vittorio finished the wedge it took 6/7 months before I started to model the figure and I sculpted it over a weekend!!!!

I got so hooked up to the project that I couldn't stop sculpting.

The head is a modified piece from Hornet, the hands and boots are from Friulmodelismo, all the rest is scratch.

Now I have to get going and start painting this little fella, but I'm working on another secret project...stay tuned.

Well I guess I'll handover the wedge to Vittorio so he can amend the mistakes and painting it.

That's all for now, let me know what you think.
