Ey-up folks.  Had a bit of time on my hands on Sunday so got out the Sculpey and had a go at a bit of figure making.

Came up with this g scale-ish drive figure for my Regner Otto.  Pretty happy with him for a first bash.

Certainly looks the part, Gareth.
Was he based on Norman Wisdom?

Cheers Rik,

Not base on anyone really, he just sort of "came out of my head" as it were.

With the mention in another thread of being buried with ones collection...
Shades of 'Terracotta Army' comes to mind! ;) :D :happy: :happy:

Personally, I have all the artist talent (and natural rhythm) of a soap-dish! :( :'(
