Brilliant figure conversions, PT and it's interesting to see Mr Blackmore playing what appears to be a Gibson 335 instead of his more usual Fender Stratocaster - that's heavy, man.

Cheers guys,

Ritchie used a 335 until around 69/70 when he started to alternate with a Strat for around a year before going fully Fender.

Natch, I did well when Deep Purple was one of the specialist subjects on Mastermind a couple of months ago :-D

Love the A-4. It is a great looking stubby jet.

Once again you figures are outstanding. You must have a ton of concerts on display at home! So much life in the poses! What inspired you to do rock icons in concerts?

Cheers Paul,
actually, none of them are on display yet, they're all in boxes awaiting the day I finally get the spare room cleared and some mega shelving built around a CD/ turntable setup with space for all my vinyl and CDS with the converted figures in their own little spaces like bookmarks separating the albums by artist. ....not forgetting a wall mounted 'Flying ducks' type arrangement of my Strat, my Daughters first three quarter size Strat and a dinky wee half size Strat that I picked up in a Cash Converter store.

how I started doing Rock stuff? well, about 4 years ago I hadn't made any kits for a few years. Then I had to clear the loft to put in some insulation and amongst the stash were a bunch of Airfix 54mm figures that I had bought in bulk to make a '45 Rising diorama. Just for a bit of fun I converted one to Frankie Miller since I was actively campaigning to get the City to commemorate his achievements at the time. That's what opened the floodgates!

Cheers Paddy, that'll be the blood of the Gael pumping a bit faster at the sight of the tartan and the sound of the pipes. :-D

There were a few variations of tartan markings before the dreaded lo-vis schemes, I'm hoping to do most of them now that I have the technology to make decals.
