Hello...

RPmodels introcuce the NEW 100mm Bust... It is the insanely mad and very heroic Jack Churchill...

He is depicted in the act of firing his longbow at the enemy (who he successfully despatched) in 1940 when serving in the Manchester Regiment , after he came off this operation he applied for selection to the Cdo ..successfully and went on to win many bravery awards including DSO's....

A true brave and very much a highly respected officer .....some say he should have had the VC.

5% of all sales will be going to the Royal Marines Museum ..a better recipient I cannot think of.

For more details contact:

Thank you.
With best regards

Hi Hugo
Must admit I had never heard of Mad Jack Churchill, until now. So a quick Google search later, I'm wiser in that regard. What a character he was.
As for the bust, it is very well crafted. A minor detail is the arrow. It should be on the other side of the bow. Over his left hand knuckles, not over the left hand thumb.
Thanks for sharing.

Very interesting! I also had to Google a bit to find out who Mad Jack was.

One thing though, wouldn't the helmet interfere with the aiming?
