Abbott & Costello finished!!!
« on: September 08, 2013, 09:57:06 PM »
Hi Guys,
 I finally finished my Abbott & Costello's Who's on first? piece.It stands 45cm(17 3/4 inches) tall from the table to the top of Bud Abbott's hat.I'm currently making another base so that I can put in a 200sec sound recorder to play their Who's on First? routine and I want the lanterns to light up.Let me know what you think.

 Cheers
 Gab

Reminds me, I saw an animated figure set of these at the card shop the other day. May go back and snag 'em. Great work on these!

Very nice job! I haven't seen this as a kit only as the animated figures.

Is it just me - Or do they suddenly look a lot more like A&C when the photo is Black and White??

Hey Dr. W, those look exactly like the two imbeciles that lost my exhibits! You must have had them pose for you since those figures look so incredibly realistic -- do you know how I can find them or contact them? I still want my exhibits back for my House of Horrors!!

Mr Mcdougal,
   They were last seen hawking hats from the Susquehanna hat company in Brooklyn.All their customers seem upset about the quality of these hats.They may have been up to one of their scams.No sign of Dracula or the Frankenstein Monster.Will keep looking.These two must be stopped.
