Spitfire sculpture commission

My Spitfire sculpture commission of this particular Spitfire Mk XV1e is taking shape at last!

I now have the Wings attached to the fusilage of my Spitfire sculpture, and today I’ve almost finished the engine. This is very different from my usual work, but the same principles apply, with just a different set of problems to overcome until the pieces are ready for dispatch.

I already have the lovely Cumbrian sandstone bases made for the four pieces I’ve been asked to make; a by-product of coring out sandstone chimney pots, and once I’ve finished making the ‘master’ sculpture, it’ll be moulded, four casts will be made and I’m now looking into getting the Spitfires silver-plated….very exciting!
