The Artist Preservation Group - Raffle 2009

I'd like to share some information that some of you may know and others may not. I am an active member of the Artist Preservation Group and would like to discuss a unique opportunity that we are offering to the miniature community. I've been fortunate enough, in my modelling career, to have had my original sculptures produced by some of the top figure manufacturers in our hobby including Pegaso Models, Masterclass/White Models, Michael Roberts Ltd., Adalbertus, United Empire, Model Cellar and others. Now, I offer my sculpting and painting services to you. By purchasing a raffle ticket from the APG, your name will be added to the hat to possibly win a bust or full figure sculpted and painted by myself. As the winner, you will choose 3 subjects you'd like me to sculpt for you and I'll select the piece that I feel I can best depict for you in miniature. I expect the winners input into the piece so you can have it exactly as you imagine. You are not limited to historical figures only. Some of those whom have already purchased tickets have in mind family members they want to pay homage to or fantasy/film characters they want to see brought to life. This is a project I'm proud to do for the APG and will give my best efforts to create a unique piece for the hobby fan, modeller, or collector. Figure manufacturers are also encouraged to enter the drawing as well. I assure you that the price of a $10 ticket is a definite price break on my usual fee;-)Where can you purchase tickets? It's easy. One ticket is $10 or you can buy 6 for $50. To keep the odds of winning excellent, the raffle is limited to a mximum of 500 issued tickets. The drawing will be held at the APG Show in Gettysburg, PA August 8, 2009. If you wait to buy tickets at the APG Show, you may be too late. They're going quick.To purchase online, visit:

In addition, you may purchase tickets at our vendor table at the upcoming MFCA Show and also from John Jeffries at this weekend's upcoming show in Chicopee, Mass. The Artist Preservation Group is an organization with which I feel priveleged to associate. Through their tireless efforts, they are contributing real aid, real money and real results to preserving our nations history and historical artifacts for future generations. If that's not a worthy cause, I don't know what is. See you at the drawing in Gettysburg!
