    Hello, everyone.:)
    I have begun to produce a new figure.
    (KING OF THE ROAD)
    this is Andrea's new product.
    The assembly was a little difficult for me.:confused:
    It's expected to glue together after a dog finishes painting.:rolleyes:
    By the way this is a general series, so I think there was a motif of this person, I didn't understand.:confused:
    If there is a person who knows, when you can tell, I'm happy.:eek:

    Mitsutaka,

    You've chosen a beautiful scene for your next vignette.

    I love the dog. Do you think he's looking at those lovely sausages??

    This man is called a "hobbo" in North America, a "traveller" in the British Isles and a "swagman" in Australia. He's homeless and spends his days hitch hiking along country roads with his dog, drifting from town to town, looking for food and some place warm to sleep at night.

    If he's any kind of swagman, he'd give his little mate at least half a sausage.

    Kevin,
    You're dating yourself, Roger Miller! Nice to know I'm not the only one remembers that song, or course I have the album in my collection which probably does more than just date me.

    Sigh... I'm afraid you're right Ray, ;)... can't remember if I used to sing this going down the road in my car with the cassette player or the 8-track player. :D

    None the less, Kinda wish I had room in the grey army for this one... its going to look NICE and it's a nice change from the usual!

    Thank you very much, Tony.

    Hello! Tony.
    Thank you very much for your polite comment and advice.:)
    I learned very much.:rolleyes:
    It may be the fact that he has no relation, but a street person also exists in a park in a Japanese capital (TOKIO).
    Most of them is living poorly.
    However the fact that the people who have their house and much money are included during it, too has been heard.
    A certain street person seems to choose a life on the road by the will.
    Anyway, this, the togetherness of the street person seems very strong.

    Thank you very much, Kevin.

    Hello! Kevin.
    Thank you for introducing a wonderful song.:)
    A hobbo seems to have pride, too, doesn't he?
    They aren't blessed materially.
    I feel like however their enjoying "freedom" to be a lot.
    It's tied to no one, so you can go everywhere.
    Indeed I think a king on the road.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Ray.

    Hi! Ray.:)
    I don't know whether a person called Roger Miller is a singer or a poet, but it's very wonderful poetry, isn't it?:)

    Thank you very much, Pedro.

    Hello! Pedro.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    I think painting of a figure doesn't take time so much, but I'll pay attention to how to take it out the feel of a material of the accessary.
    To express the color of the sausage, the color of the board which burned and the color of the newspaper seems difficult for me.:eek:

    It's a nice start Mitsutaka.
    With Robert Miller at the back in your head you can create something beautifull.

    Hello! marc.
    Thank you very much for your comment.:)
    He's a musician, isn't he?

    I think painting also ends early this time in as usual.:eek:

    Thank you very much, Guy.

    Hello! Guy.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment.:)
    It was smaller than I thought, but a kit is Andrea's average size.
    A foot was glued together in the ground first, so I think it would be difficult to unite.:confused:
    I think I hoped that Iadvanced assembly after both arms were glued together for a body.:eek:
