Captain Johnlovewell Commission Started

I've been commissioned to create a 1/2 life size bronze of a famous early American hero. Captain John Lovewell, who was killed by Abenaki Indians in a battle near Lovewell Pond.
John Lovewell (October 14, 1691 -- May 8, 1725) was a famous Ranger in the 18th century who fought during Dummer's War (also known as Lovewell's War). He lived in present-day Nashua, New Hampshire. He fought in Dummer's War as a militia captain, leading three expeditions against the Abenaki Indians.
Lovewell was commemorated by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow with his poem, "The Battle of Lovells Pond", and by Nathaniel Hawthorne with his story, "Roger Malvin's Burial".

HI again David
I cannot figure out where to find the armature stand parts. Ace did not have the screw down slide on your pole. Where do I find that? Did you have a video on making the first part of the male figure? I seem to have lost site of that one. Is it a pre-formed thing or did you fabricate it???
Sheila
I need the parts !!!!!
