    Goodbye Cobber or Journeys End


    Recommended Posts

    This is a 1/16th mostly scratch built model of an Australian infantryman saying goodbye to a fallen comrade. It was inspired by e-mail conversations with Tony Dawe, a medal-winning Australian painter, whose relatives fought in Gallipoli and on the Western Front during WW1. Tony painted the model both with attention to historical accuracy and detail and a marvelous eye for color and took all the photos.

    Hope you like it!

    All the best,

    For an Australian this is a very evocative scene.    As with Canada and South Africa at some point in WW1 most houses flew a flag of mourning  -  the death toll was just so high

    Personally, I can think of several Aussie museums who would welcome being able to put it on show.    Thankyou.    Mervyn
