Finished 'round face' Kong 1933

"Definitely him all right!  Although, from this angle, there is a touch of Homer Simpson as well ;)   Some of your wrinkles still look like tool marks - maybe could do with rounding the edges more.  Unless you want to keep the…"

"Hi Joe. I ended up not using that method and kept to using wire. I think maybe the wire I was using before was too thin. "

"Ah yes. The only thing about those posts is the fact that there is not much space inside them. I wanted to have character being trapped up in the lighthouse, whilst the unknown thing lurks downstairs. Something like that anyway, still trying to…"
