Prince Ernst August III of Hannover

3rd Duke of Cumberland
Austrian (Hungarian) Generals Uniform 1880
1/10 scale resin and white metal bust, this is the first bust ever made with a pair of glasses. made by Michael Miniatures
Painted with acrylics and highlights with oil paints.
This is the most challenging bust I have painted, I had to strip the paint off once and start over because I was not happy with my work. Worked on this one well over a year to get it to this stage. I like the results now.
The unpainted bust is shown
