    Hi Guys.

    A commission from a conversation at Nantwich Show recently, where the guy had seen my Desert Tender crew, WIP and has asked if I could make him a driver for his Model T rail conversion., as per the pics.

    All sculpting in Milliput over a galvanised steel wire armature (except the arms, which is copper!). Head for scale and pose, but will be used as a dolly for the new one. Posed in my Desert Tender, but will eventually sit in a LHD version!!

    Bottom half almost done, next, onto the hands, head and shirt details. photos have downloaded out of order, but youll get the idea!

    Outstanding sculpting as always, Steve, & such an obscure subject too. Following with much interest, now that they've taken 2 of my favourite Northern Soul shows off BBC Sounds on Friday/Saturday nights!

    KTF & KOKO,

    But there is a bright spot - I can still pick up Keith Fletcher’s (top bloke, runs Soul In The Dales at Skipton) Saturday Night Soul on BBC Radio Lancs, & it’s now 4 hours long - a 4 hour festival of Motown & Northern every weekend, bliss!

    Excellent sculpt, Steve - folds & creases on the shirt & pants are very realistic.
