Geronimo 54mm Apache Warrior Indian

Well here we go for another post after a break for going on holiday.  I have painted a few more figures but not got back to the 40mm Old Glory Sioux, always got easily distracted written on my report card at school, you all know what its like?
Anyhow this is a lovely but tricky model to build as its made of  brittle resin, it has several pins in it and a few camouflaged breaks, but I am happy with result.
The model is of an Apache Warrior in 54mm from a Polish company called MModels, I decided to base him on Geronimo (Mescalero-Chiricahua: Goyaałé [kòjàːɬɛ́] "one who yawns"; June 16, 1829 – February 17, 1909) was a prominent Native American leader of the Chiricahua Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States for their expansion into Apache tribal lands for several decades during the Apache Wars. Allegedly, "Geronimo" was the name given to him during a Mexican incident. His Chiricahua name is often rendered as Goyathlay or Goyahkla[2][3] in English.
I entered this model at Targe 2011 in Kirriemuir and won best single figure with it.
Thanks for looking and any comments welcome.  Michael
