Lanoe Hawker VC


Recommended Posts

I'm currently going through my stash of older figures and giving some attention to long neglected pieces. This is a figure from Pegaso sculpted by Mike Good of British WW1 Pilot Lanoe Hawker VC. Painted in Vallejo acrylics with the use of some inks to aid the leather effects of the rather fetching baggy trousers.

Thanks gents! Any figure sculpted by Mike Good is going to look at least half decent when painted - he provides such a superb canvas and I have to say he's my favourite sculptor. I didn't know this was now oop - it's been sitting in my stash for years and I always felt it was too good to let go, and I'm now very glad I didn't!

When you see this figure and the photos of Lanoe, it's not obvious that he was only 25 when he died. Nowadays 50 year olds look younger.

 

Impressive painting BTW 👍

Yes, all too easy to forget how young those old blokes were when they fought and died. This particular 50-something is humbled by them.

 

And thank you Fred.
