I want to apologize for my lack of recent posts but I've been busy with everything except painting. I did paint a few small project or made very little progress on current projects but nothing worth posting or writing about.
At the moment, my hobby seems more to be a collector of models and busts instead of being a painter.
My most recent purchase is a bust portraying Katsumoto from the movie The Last Samurai by Mitches Military Models. They have a large assortment of 120mm, 200mm resin figures, and busts. They range from historical models to modern day soldiers.
Some of the movie inspired pieces immediately caught my eye, and some of them were on sale as well! Lucky me!

and body, and 2 pieces that might be
ornamental or added armor
The model does require some cleanup, there is a pretty nasty mold line on the back of the model, running across the back and the back of his head. There are also some little blobs of resin between his collar and neck. The obvious flash should also be removed.
