"Over the Top" - The Kit

I saw this kit on planetFigure a few weeks ago and just had to get it. Even though I haven't done a figure/bust in years, this one really caught my attention.

It's a 1/9th scale bust of a Captain of the 2/5th Bn. Gloucestershire Regiment, 61st Div., 1916. Sculpted by Carl Reid for Model Cellar, it depicts the good captain counting down to "zero hour", pistol and walking stick in-hand and whistle ready to blow to sound the attack. The plinth depicts the empty trench section a few seconds later after he and his men have gone "over the top."

Once my M8 is finished, this just might be next up!
