Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

......

Is that Hagar?

And Snoopy and Vercingetorix, along with the crew of the Heart of Gold and a Bond Henchman.  P9 has me at a miss, though

These are the catalogue descriptions:

HITCH-HIKERS:
P1   Hiker in Dressing Gown   1.45
P2   Hiker carrying Bag   1.45
P3   Hiker with Two Heads   1.45
P4   Hiker Robot   1.45
P5   Hiker Girl   1.45

PERSONALITIES:
P6   Beagle Adventurer   1.45
P7   Comic Barbarian   1.45
P8   Comic Dwarf   1.45
P9   Secret Agent   1.45
P10   Oriental Thug   1.45

P10 is obviously Oddjob from the James Bond film and I agree with Zenrat that P7 looks like Hagar The Horrible (UK newspaper cartoon character).
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

P1  Arthur Dent
P2  Ford Prefect
P3  Zaphod Beeblebrox
P4  Marvin (The Paranoid Android)
P5  Trillian

And all looking remarkable like the characters from the 1981 BBC tv series

Hagar was the only thing worth reading in the Snu.

BTW, off-topic, but Denizen also do gorgeous 1/43rd scale racing drivers and pit crew from a range of eras: http://www.denizenminiatures.co.uk/rd_new/drivers.htm


You're not kidding, I have some of their drivers in my slot cars.  :thumbsup:

Their Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart are brilliant!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Another old gold topic, but currently topical for me

When I saw this figure by Nocturna.

I immediately thought of this


so a bit of apoxysculpt around the beard area gave me this

Sure, anytime for another Tull fan

The figure is 54mm
This is the manufacturer page, some really nice stuff here. I have found that these figures are quite widely available

Jethro Tull and their ilk never did anything for me. I was a Motown/Soul/Ska/Reggae "Suede Head"  ;D Although I can now appreciate all kinds of music Tull still doesn't do anything for me for some reason ? Having said that I can appreciate some superb work on the figures  :thumbsup:
