My homemade Laughing Sailor

Postby thunder » Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:53 pm



Hi all,
I'm new on here. I make and restore all sorts.

This model works on old penny and runs on 12v.

Hope you like it. Comments welcome.

Very clever - he works well. Looks like he's had a harder life than the more rotund Modern Enterprises sailor. Prettier cabinet too!

Now THAT'S the Navy I was in; two pints of grog and three sheets to the wind. Love the cabriole legs on the case. A very stylish job, mate. Well done indeed! **xXx**

Made this Marathon Cycle case about a year ago. Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality .
A singing Marilyn Monroe doll is in the design stages at present. Standing on a grate with a fan blowing up her dress - bit of a strange one possibly, but I'm sure I'm mad.

How did you make the head of the sailor and how did you get the movement on the sailor? Just curious. !PUZZLED!

Met a nice chap called David Archer from South Australia many years ago who makes his own automata. Everything is hand-made. I can't find the link, sorry, but I recall it's something like archersarcadia. Some super pieces... Worth a look if you're interested.
