Not one of my more recent paint jobs, but I like him.

A typical eccentric!!!

Where did the Egyptian scenery come from?

I'll see if I can snap another shot of him sometime soon.

The pet store, years ago when it was on sale. As is common, I use a lot of Egyptian motifs on Mars. That's how the pyramids got built, after all, right?

A great looking figure and and fantastic paint job (clearly an ancestor of Tim Brooke-Taylor).
A clearer pic is needed though, so that we can see all that great detail you've put into your work.

Tim B-T's waistcoat, perhaps, but the fella has a distinctly Robert Morley look to him!  lol

Very nice!  :)
