    Hi Pete, figures cost me 35 Euros + postage to NZ worth every penny I reckon.
    It is Limited Edition - think about 300 produced, less that 100 now.

    Andrea sculpted a little half on the original base, felt it was a bit big & wanted to show both halves of the split apple. Made my own & then split it as part of process. Pretty straight forward. Painted it in acrylics.

    Lovely work Mike!
    The background pattern is a bit distracting I must say, but the paintjob is top notch.

    Cheers,

    That background has to go Adrian! Too many think it detracts will see what I can do in weeks to come.

    Thanks though for kind feedback.

    As you say a lovely piece Mike,
    I like it.
    As a gift you have done it good justice Mate, The previous background took the focus away from the sculpt and your great painting skill.........in my humble opinion.
    Cheers,

    Thank you guys for following up on this older figure.
    Reflecting on this one would approach it completely different today.
    Still very much a personal favourite.

    Stay safe

    Thanks Al & Andy for supportive comments.
    Maybe some of these still around Al, worth tracking down one if you get a chance.
    Good eye for detail Andy, used kiwi as my personal logo on painted figures before getting my son to do a tidier version to "stamp" my photos with.

    Missed catching up with both of you in Brisbane :(
    Maybe another date & another time

    Thanks CCL, NOT SURE IF & where to get this little guy today.
    May want to try contacting Michael Zeller over a King Miniatures
    http://www.kingsfigurines.com/crbst_9.html

    I understand he was involved in Swiss World Expo where this was one of commemorative figures or ask on Planet here :)

    Good luck
