About a month ago, I created something I thought was a little different for a head-in-a-box figure, for those who might have missed it, you can see more about that here;
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......um=182&4
Shortly after, I put it up on ebay, only sold for 50. which wasn't too pleasing, but what was pleasing was that the person who bought it wrote this in my feedback;
"Thank you, This shows great passionate work!"
Knowing the person who got it appreciates it and the work that went into it is always worth a lot and I appreciate their comment.

Anyway, I decided to make another one - only I won't be selling this one, if I were going to make another one just to sell, I wouldn't make it. No, this one is for me.
Like the first one, I again, foolishly, expected it to be a quick easy project. Actually wasn't too bad until I got to the front panel that was supposed to be the door. For a variety of reasons I won't go into explaining, it was impossible to use hinges. Finally, I figured on using a couple of magnetic catches to hold the front panel in place, so instead of swinging open like a door, I just completely remove the front panel.
I was thinking of "camoflaging" the catches like I did on the other one, and still might, but since this is just for me, I can put that off until later. I also need to do a tiny bit of touch up on the face, but that too can wait.
For all intent and purposes, it is done, now I just need to find room for it on my shelf.

Here are some pics;
