A happy New Year to all reading this, we've celebrated the Winter Soltice and the coming of the two faced god Janus, to look back on the despicable 2020 and look forward (hopefully) to a new 2021 !
I 've had a very leisurely holiday period, plodding along doing very little hobby-wise, mostly eating sleeping and playing nurse, housemaid, cook, cleaner, and servant to my wife who had a fairly serious accident just before Xmas - she's now on the mend and getting better daily.
I have been doing bits though with my newly acquired Xmas present to mysel - my westerners..
With the use of hot and cold water dips, a file and a craftknife and the addition of twine I've produced a few simple conversions
Photographing these was a pain, ther beingbright white plastic, but I hope some idea can be had from my limited photoshopping skills.
The following photographs, show two 'conversions' with the orginal figure in the centre.
[The ladies, the one on the left will be holding a fan]
[L to R: meat cleaver wielder, origianl with machete and sombrero on his back, lastly man with knife]
[Men with shovels, original in the centre)
[Only one 'conversion, chap on left is now bald ! (other chap is the original0]
Final photograph is a rear view of just the men and hopefully it willbe obvious now what the 'conversions' are intended to be used for.
[Rear view of all those now with queues - my first western Chinese-to-be]
That's it then for this week, I'm desperately trying to catch up on all the blogs I normally comment upon, but in the meantime, thanks for taking the itme to visit and hopefully you;ve found something of interest.
Of course, as always, your comments are welcome and appreciated.
