Thanks Victor for posting them up! The 3rd pic. Center is of me. the carver worked from my photo, fig. is 8"' tall (standard size). 1st fig. is 6" tall which is of a Phil. Constable 1905ish, which after painting i will give to my son who is a police officer at New Scotland Yard in London. The last pic is of a bolo-man 5" tall next to cofee mug to convey size. Next to that is the squatting officer ( ONLY 4 INCHES From base to head!) Check the detail at that size. (after Pedro Javier's BNK photo taken at Fort Santiago Manila as is the Bolo-man). "That is the very smallest I can make a figure" the sculptor told me. It was carved as a demo of what he could do. He charged me P1500 for each figure. That price would be for and figure up to 12" high. I am very happy with the 2 center figs of 8" figs. The 2nd one of the kneeling barefoot soldier is the same size and proportion as "Me" (3rd Pic) at 8''. I shall begin painting them to-night. I'm planning to ask the young man to do a carving of the heads of my son a future daughter -in -law in time for their wedding in August. Although he is a fast worker I think I best give him the photos before he is swamped with orders. I will get some details of posting costs during the week also. He can carve any type of soldier WW1, WW2, FIL.REV. or any-other. Contact me if you want any info. I now know what everyone can buy me for my birthday & Xmas, So I can have a complete squad! Salute! David

I will be visiting Manila next month and would like to try and see if I can possible have some wood carving figurines done of a PS figure or other wood plaque PS insignia's. Let me know how I can reach you if you are still in Manila.
