    Hi Guys ,

    Yep its true I have had another idea ....after wiping the tears from Jimbo's eyes.....

    We are going to do another WW2 trio ....consisting of a:

    Police Officer City of London ( great helmet badge)
    WRVS lady
    Land Girl

    Current situation ...lots of blanks that El Jimbo is working on ...the officer of the law will be first up ....hopefully with a whistle in his hand , Sgts ranks stripes , a medal ribbon or 2 , duty armband

    Land Girl with a tool of some sort...rake maybe with a headscarf not a beret
    01aaa.jpg
    WRVS...an older lady

    You could paint the Policeman in a copper finish.
    Nice idea and its going to cost you a lot of cookies to keep Jimbo happy.

    Remember if your officer of the law is of the City of London. The duty band on the cuff would have been red & white, NOT the blue/black and white of the other forces. The buttons would be brass/ yellow metal

    I remember going into Snow Hill nick (C of L) and they had a row of coat hooks about 6ft off the ground with a notice above City of London Police Coats only. then to tj e right another row of hooks about 5ft off the ground with a similar notice for Metropolitan Police coats. cracking stuff.

    That's a great idea and already it looks nice but what I'm really looking for is the older lady.Very challenging subjects both as far as sculpture is concerned and painting as well.Will follow this one.

    possible suggestion for a base could be some form of canteen/food van. i would have said a biscuit tin but jimbo would probably try and eat it!!!:LOL:

    You could do a police box for the base. A bit Dr Who ish i know but it might work.

    This is a nice idea for someone to steal Jim's skills and then claim all the glory with a slap of paint.
    Poor Jim with all this overtime, I don't know why you don't send him up chimneys like a Dickensian child for goodness sake.
    I just love the subtle manner of influence on you the Planet jury by the said Kev 'the crumb' Peart, AKA the notorious Digestive diverter.
    With known form as a figgy bic fence, the shameful implication is made that it was poor old overworked downtrodden Jimbo , AKA 'Fingers Evans' that was the biscuit nobbler of the Parish.
    Shame on you, Nap, you know that Mrs Evans put mouse traps in the kitchen cupboards to slow you down
