Schedule of Molatero jobs - immediate and 'in the pipeline'
1. 'Harry's Head'I've actually started this, had a couple of dodgy practises. But my third attempt is looking more promising! This will set the style of a series of five different heads which I will use on my 'Harry' series of toy soldiers.
2. 1/32 (54mm) scale Steyr-Mannlicher M1888 rifle model
I've decided that the Molatarian Army will be armed with the Steyr-Mannlicher M1888 bolt-action rifle (it was a choice between this and the Russian Moin-Nagant). I will be having a go at making a small scale model of this rifle which I will then send up to my brother for him to duplicate in resin for me.

3. 'Bugler Bill' 1/32 toy soldier sculpt
To test out the concept of my 'Harry' body sculpt I will be making a one-off completed soldier. As a one-off I decided that a good subject might be a bugler for my HQ Command section of my army. This also means I can be a little creative with the uniform as he will not be part of a regiment of the line.
Left: A trombone I know, but I like the uniform. Believe it or not this is a member of the 1917 Municipal Band of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania!
