  15. Hi all, I finished this bust last year but didn't take any decent pictures until yesterday. Anyway It's the old gnome bust by War Griffon Miniatures (Model Display Products). There is a slight conversion as on the original he's holding the pipe in his hand but when I attended my dads wedding last year he had some of these plastic jewels as part of the table display so I employed several small children and got them to nab them all in the hope of finding one that would fit correctly. Crits and comments welcome :)
