    The Real Fairey Tale

    Post  Ray on Mon Mar 03, 2014 10:16 pm

    My Ultimate Wedding Present!!!!!!!

    Scale is 75mm except for the 3 mares which are representing the 3 daughters...they are Bill Merklin's 54mm offerings which I bought during World Expo in Boston 2005....couldn't find any use for them except when & where they were actually needed :)I could not find FOALS in 75mm & as I was walking a VERY TIGHT ROPE as the date & time of Wedding were quite short noticed, I decided to incorporate the 54mm mares into the 75mm scene to represent Foals Smile
    Seil Models' & Nocturna's offerings of the Templar Knight & Soum 13moons respectively were chosen for the Knight Prince & Warrior Princess Smile& both were heavily converted/modified as can be seen from the photos.
    Cork Bark was used for the Rocky Terrain & Deluxe Materlias Scenic Water, Scenic Fibres & Making Waves were used for the waterfall effect Smile

    I admit I PANICED & WAS STRESSED at times but Thank God I did it on time & the look on both the Bride & Groom's faces & ESPECIALLY the Kids' faces is PRICELESS & Definitely My Invaluable Reward, as I DID it with LOVE, PRIDE & HONOUR for Sharon & Noel & their BEAUTIFUL Family :)God Bless You ALL in this Life & the Next Smile

    ONE word Ray, AWESOME. Whoever is getting this is very lucky, a real masterpiece and you can see the dedication you put into it. I simply love it. Out of a fairy tale, well done. If i get married again please give me a gift like this...........But don;t panic about a deadline, you can rest assured it will not happen!!!

    Ray, I'm serious....... I took your photo on a USB and took it to my friend who enlarged it on an HD monitor. It clearly shows that he has not a forward lean.

    I also contacted Seil'sTemplar Knight and showed them the enlarged photo and they fully agreed. The sculpture has also been contacted and he will be flaying Ryan Air to Malta tomorrow to discuss the flaw personally with you. He was very upset to see his figure in such an angle.


    I took the liberty of giving them your address, so please prepare some finger food and drinks. I will not be able to make it, I'm sorry. 


    A Euro judge will also be coming with them and he will read out your charges and give you your sentence for breach of angle positioning.
