    Ok, this is my attempt to make a scene for the excellent Bill Sikes sculpt. The base is a two piece resin affair that I picked up from the now extinct, Three Guyz Hobbies, out of Buffalo NY. The barrels are from Armand Bayardi and the rats from Plus models. Very early on and any and all observations/suggestions are welcome.

    Del, I took your advice and moved bill closer to his dog, (no picture of that yet) a whole lot better, thanks

    Will follow with interest, I've got 1/100 but I might well be the last to put paint to it.
    The groundwork gives loads of opportunities to set the scene, a couple of old newspaper sheets up against the barrels
    might work well.

    The rats don't look far off scale wise Tom.
    Look forwards to the next update,

    Thanks guys, Del, I found some 19th century looking posters and newsprint, thanks again (y) Carl, the rats were the closest I could find, and I aready had them so that made it easy.:) Brian, the DVD thing is something I definately need to do, Thanks. Jayhawk, funny you mentioned that quote. Old Bill here did a headless header off my bench. It broke the back end of his, "jimmy" off and I contemplated for a moment that he looked more sinister in a way with the shortened version, but I put it right. Hopefully more progress soon.
