Hi,
Regarding the sailor, have you any plans to sell him or do you make them to sell? If so, how much? Many thanks. Think he's amazing.

The plan was make them and sell them, so I have the parts to make more. Took 80 odd hours and there's about £250 in electronics, metal, wood etc. This does not include the case, which is a one-off, made of odd bits I had lying around. It's a perspex case.

The sailor is approx half size of normal; movement has cams, like original. His eyes move and he has a tongue. It runs on 12v, so no shocks.
He looks good, only thing is skin colour and face shading needs work I think but, as a first attempt, I was quite happy, so I guess it's what's it worth to you :!?!: Tempt me.
