Quick Update

Sorry for the lack of updates over the last few days, unfortunately my Gran suffered a serious fall so I have travelled up to be with her and the rest of the family.
The greens are with Stewart at Griffin and as soon as I have some of the master castings I will let you know.

A Day Trip is Planned

Not the usual title for a post, but an important one. At 10am on Monday I will be at the casters, along with six little men. The five greens and my youngest son!
Hopefully we can work out the best options for the composition of figures in the moulds. Never having done this before I am, very much, in the hands of the caster. I have no doubt though that it will all work out well.
The net post will be on Monday when I will have a better idea of when there will be some little metal men available to show off.

They're Here!

And without further ado let me say that they are wonderful. My unreserved compliments go to Richard for capturing exactly what I wanted, regardles of my rambling requests.
As I have jjust told him, having only seen pictures of the figures I was shocked at how small they were. Not that they are small, it's just that the pictures showed on my screen as about 6 inches high.
For those of you who are interested, here are the photos (I have resized them to 640x480 so they are not too large). Remember, if you want to see a larger version then click on the picture.





Now it's off to the casters for them, after I've had another look!
