    The most dangerous woman in Europe. I reckon I'll give this one a swerve.

    Whatever happened to 'ignore the politics, judge* the sculpting' as espoused on so many other threads?

    In this case my opinion is that it's a not that good, and an over-severe, likeness.

    Politics aside, I just don't think it's a subject that many people will be interested in Neil. And I'd say the same if I thought she was a saint sent from Heaven.

    On top of it being a BORING subject, the price is beyond STUPID! Get a friggin grip folks and take your heads out of your butts!

    Is it just me that see's it? Feck sake!
    As a hobby we need to step up and say No Thanks!
    Maybe it's just me being from Cumbria but the hobby is getting a bit silly folks.
    Nuf said!
    Cheers from where the sun hasn't shawn in a month!!! Must be getting edgey!

    Hi Guys


    One word really from me.....WHY????????

    Too expensive by far ...even if it was solid bronze which it isn't

    They should take a leaf out of Stormtrooper book ..quality at a reasonable price

    Maybe the dots in the wrong place on the price ...lol

    One more parting shot folks!
    I've been in the hobby for over 40 years now and I just don't get the disconnect between the supplier and the end user. I'm not taking away from the skill to produce this "thing" but it's like my missus trying to
    drag me to the Tate Modern to see "art". Feck Sake!
    Cheers again from where the sun don't shine... no doubt part of my anx!
    Cheers

    Okay. From a technical stand point, it really is excellent. No doubt at all. It is superb.

    I think it's just the subject matter that people are finding odd. I won't go into the politics of it all. I know I'm not alone in thinking, "Who on earth is going to buy it?"

    I'd chalk this up as an own goal and move on. :oops:

    So guys, if you're reading this, do us as a favour - cancel the Theresa May one...

    I think the sculpture is really well done. Agree about the price though, quite high.

    Surprised about the over-the-top responses, rather inappropriate as well.

    Cheers
