  1. The days when a man could have a bit of a tipple while driving his horse on a hot summer day are sadly behind us. This is a great figure and nicely done.

  9. Quality control, that's what I call it! And when the horse stay sober, he always get home!

    With a barrel like that Paul, we don't need the bar! Excellent work again!

  15. That's a bod after my own heart. Love it, really good work on the texturing of the wood of the barrel. Don't suppose it's a barrel of Guinness, by any chance? (smacking lips thirstily)

  16. Very nice work indeed. It's too bad that there are still mould lines visible on the barrels side.

    1. Thanks.
      The barrels come in two halves and the fit is absolutely dreadfull. No matter which half I matched with which half they are out of line. I spent age reworking the mold lines on another but to be honest it wasn´t really worth the effort..it still looks out of line.

  20. I love it Paul! None for the horse? I wish the ale wagon would make a comeback.
