There was one Moley...but it looked too real. But not as tasty as it looked. :Chuckle:

On Sunday 19th Nov 2017 at Redditch tackle fair I met up with Richard and his lovely wife Maria. It certainly was a Grand day out..

After a few minutes of the usual greetings and chat I was absolutely gob smacked when Richard presented me with this beautiful diorama and all I can say is thank you once again mate.
The detail is astounding and I still don't know how you managed to make all the tiny parts with those sausage fingers of yours but one thing is certain, it really does looks superb on the wall and will be treasured.
