    Hi to the States as well as to Belgium.

    I can tell to you about build of figure only that material used is just a common office paper /80g/m2/, which is rolled and than formed in to hands or legs /using dental wooden stick/. When forming finished - painting with acvarel colours. After painting - patina coating with dry-brush/acvarel colours/

    Now Leszek finished with his left hand with "rolled cigarette" DRUM

    Enjoy the picture with MICHELIN figure on the top of the roof /allthought not very popular in the States from Formula 1 racing - Indi this year/

    Bernie,
    Congratuations on a job not only completed but a job well done! I only hope I can have a small bit of your patience. As for your modeling abilities, I can only envy you. I struggle on with my Jelcz. I am currently assembling the rear braking system. Then, hopefully, I can finally assemble all the peices of the back suspension together.
    Phil

    Again, like with the present photo of the week by Orion, I must say that the phrase "never guessed it was paper" really is appropriate. Congratulations to an outstanding build, not least the dirt effects! - Leif
