Les around 90GBP, they really are unique. I was amazed he could come up with something so good. They are around 300mm tall so quite striking.

Thanks Frank.  Salute 

Been having computer problems mate, that's why I was awal for a few weeks.

These darn things drive you potty trying to figure out what is wrong with them, and if you get an 'expert' to fix them they will charge you an arm and a leg, so with the bit of knowledge I have about these contraptions, I set about fixing the thing myself, a bit of trial and error, but I got there in the end. Mrs Shifter wasn't too pleased with all the bits and pieces cluttering up the fold away table, I had little screws in containers, the screen, keyboard, hard drive, motherboard, and all sorts of other bits and bobs on the fold up table, the look on her face was a picture, ha ha. It was like putting together a large airfix kit when I put the thing back together again, but I did it, and it works fine now.

The bead work on those two figures must have taken ages to do, they are a credit to the zulu people.

Cheers mate.  Salute

If my 'man cave' (or junk room as Mrs Shifter calls it), was as organised as Frank's I would know where to find things, however, I have the bad habit of putting things here and there then forgetting where they are, jeez, I am still looking for an old railway sign I put in there back in 1966 (the year England won the world cup), ummm, I wonder if Mrs Shifter has been on the prowl  scratch  Suspect   Very Happy
