    Hi All,
    Well he has finally arrived and was it worth the wait, what a job Dimitry has done on the sculpting and Steve has done on the casting. To say I'm happy is an understatement and he so good I'm keeping all the copies for myself.:p

    Sculpted by Gaudin
    Cast by Reedees Miniatures
    The 1/9 scale kit is cast in 10 grey resin parts

    There are 2 base plinth badges included, one taken from an original WW1 rising sun collar badge and the other and ANZAC cross adorned by the gum and fern leaves, both symbols synonymous with Australia and New Zealand respectively. I have also had a new rifle commissioned for the bust.

    I have literally knocked the casting block off and blue tacked together in 10 minutes. There is space on the Roo cheeks for whiskers and I would suggest either the hairs from a disregarded paint brush or fine nylon fishing line for this.

    The world wide price delivered is £39.50.
    cheers
    Richie

    Hi Michael, Gary & Paul,
    Thanks lads, Michael I'll PM you as I can't these on my website yet. Gary it threw my a curve ball too, I was whistling Skippy to M.O.H.:eek: nearly want banana's. Paul too true mate.;)

    D has just pointed out, that I had the ear in the wrong position and it should be positioned like this. Well what does he expect it's the first time us chimps have seen a Roo.:rolleyes: Thanks D(y). Are you listening Ron.

    cheers

    Ear can be put in any position, really, but the dip for the hat on the back surface of the ear will need filling in - if someone chooses to be different.

    Would we be able to get an ear under the headwear on the opposite side ?

    Why would you want to? :)

    The way I imagined it is that it is inside of the hat. Hat is solid, but you could make a DIY copy of the original ear and place it there to bend backwards (you will need to cut enough space off the head to accommodate it) - is that what you have in mind?
