Stunning!! How do you make these things so quickly, it's take me months to get even halfway through one, even if I knew what I was doing!


Thanks Very Happy I've always been a fast worker and to be honest if something takes me longer than a week I tend to side step it and move on as I lose interest. Take George Oblique Stroke XR40 he went on for ages and he's now up in the loft unfinished and has been for yesrs Rolling Eyes

You'd have had a whale of a time working on the original show, I bet they needed a fast turnaround making an episode every couple of weeks.

The New Avengers never seemed to have as much prop-focus.

Your absolutely right. The New Avengers has virtually nothing in the way of specific props in the way the Avengers had. To be honest I've not found anything worth attempting bar what appears in Last Of The Cybernauts. I've started getting the parts together for the remote control box, but it's slow going. I started the flute from Cat Among The Pigeons and the hand ID plate from Complex last year, but quickly got bored with both. I'm quietly working on the Broadcast power unit that appears in the Morris van in The Positive Negative Man, however I'm still searching for the final part.

Probably one of the reasons of the lack of props, was the reduced budget for each episode, let alone the series ..the money, simply wasn't there....and the scripts were not as complex, etc.....hence, the void of props....

Due to Carpel Tunnel Syndrome I will no longer be making replica props. All the pieces featured on the site are available to purchase. 99% of them are unique. All reasonable offers considered.

Sorry to hear that. Itís a real shame that something you clearly have a talent for has been curtailed. I hope this doesnít impact on you any further.

I am so sorry to hear about your medical diagnosis. It is a terrible affliction. It must be so annoying to have to stop making things. What a dreadful way for nature to treat such a talent Sad

Thanks, had to stop at some point anyway, and I've had a good run.

That's kind, thank you. It has become increasing more difficult since last Autumn, I seemed to be having difficulty gripping and then started dropping everything, and that was becoming more frustrating than having to stop altogether. Sadly my last prop is now highly unlikely to ever get completed. I was perhaps half way through the portrait of Black Jamie from Castle De'ath,

Hi Ian, I'm so very sorry to hear about your condition. I can appreciate how frustrating and dispiriting it must be.

I'm truly envious of your talent and skill in creating so many incredible pieces (if I had a more disposable income there's a few I'd love to display on my shelves). Your eye for detail in stupendous!
