Keep on TRUCKIN'! This rex was commissioned recently. The lorry is a wall sculpture and has been designed to look as if it has been driven straight through the wall. There are two foolish mice on board, one driving and the other hanging onto the passenger mirror. About 30cm high.
This unique metal figurine is welded using partly recycled steel, sourced locally. The head is almost totally recycled as are the molten joints. The metal tubing I use for the body is sometimes recycled. I have a couple of steel fabricators in Martock who let me rummage through their scrap bins. I can always find strips of steel suitable for various parts of the truck.
Each mouse is totally unique as they are individually welded and then painted to give a quirky look. When painting, I dot the eyes slightly cross-eyed, which brings each metal figurine to life. Makes me smile every time I finish one.
Working from photos, I have been able to copy the company colours and logo fairly accurately.
Always posted 1st class.
Another unusual and unique gift from Chris Kampf
Remember...there's no vet bills with this Rex Pet!
