Euro Militaire model figure and Military show in Folkestone finished a week ago now – and it seems fitting after a week of images from the show to give you the winner - Best of Show Euro Militaire 2011– was this figure of the, Napoleonic vignette by Antonio Zapatero and Gustavo Gil called “Valeur et Discipline”
Seeing it with my own eyes I can confirm this was truly one of those figures that pictures cannot do justice - it was truly a deserved winner and congratulations to Antonio and Gustavo for their excellent work!
I thought it was fitting as well to mention this rag-tag bunch of guys (above) I met in the flesh for the first time – led by Pietro Balloni (centre) who invites some of us lucky punters to a “Tuscan Summer” meeting on the Leas outside – anyone who was there pretty much knows it was an “English Summer” meeting instead – not to worry it was a great time to be had by all – When Pietro and his team weren’t doing this they were very very hard at work at their stand downstairs – they were really in vogue as you could see many Pegaso figures down on the judging tables – and judging by the finished products they are winners as well
On to the last of the Photo Galleries of the event – this part encasing some of the most amazing figure work I have seen in the flesh – congratulations to all there – it was a lovely event I urge you all to see if you get a chance next time.
