Well, there's still 'naugahyde'... geek


lol!


Thanks Jim, Naugahyde was made in my home town by Uniroyal, formerly Ball Band rubber company, made "Red Ball Jets" gym shoes. Everyone in town knew somebody who worked there. I still have a pair of rubber boots from the company store (seconds, with the red ball cut off).

They went out of business years ago and a few years ago they imploded the factory. Everyone in town turned out to watch the demolition.



Cool history Brian! Very Happy

Here's a figure I did, dedicated to my father a Corporal in the U. S. Army Air Corps, WWII. Stateside flight instrument repair, Engineering Corp. He was just young enough to miss being sent to Europe. The schooling he received in electronics helped him too. Then the war ended. Very Happy

















Thanks for looking!

That's a very realistic looking representation of your father Brian.

It has a 'Colonel Steve Trevor' (Wonder Woman's friend) feel to it too!
