This is what I'm trying. Hope you like it. I have chosen a light colour sonif you need a darker colour all you'll need is a marker pen.

That is awesome! cant wait to see it in person...

Good to know...  But don't rush..  I just like to sit down and push out a couple of an evening while the other half is watching telly.

 

We still have most of this month and a couple weeks of next before they should really be in the mail :).

Hey Lil' Dave, I got a question: I went to our postal carriers and asked them if it was possible to send an international package with a prepaid return. they said no to me. So my question Is: do i send American currency for you to exchange into Pounds ( or whatever you folks call it ( no disrespect)). Im not sure how to go about this.

 

Let me know brother.

We call em dollars too mate.

 

US Dollars are fine, as I can always use them for future swaps, or you can use paypal if you're comfortable with that.

 

Cheers

Here's what I got coming your way.  I also did some more traditional toad styles without the legs so it's one of each
