Very clever construction and good weld runs. A lot of work has obviously gone into the shaping and profiling of the individual pieces to achieve the completed overall body shapes! Judging by the ratio of weld run width to body part cross section dimensions, I estimate guestimate that these figures were approx 1/2 scale.

Good photography; you have managed to eliminate the reflective glares, did you use a polarizing filter? I have read that a polarizing filter does not eliminate reflections from electrically conductive surfaces which these obviously are, they look like stainless steel to me! Well photographed.

Apologies for such a late comment but I remembered, whilst driving along the A4 last night that I had intended commenting on this one, thus I had to search back for it tonight. Perhaps a piece of sheet steel or other metalwork, along the road somewhere, triggered my memory banks!

Regards.

Thank you so much for your comment. No filter used - as far as I could judge the figures are a shade under life size

I like these, appeals to my mechanical side. Like to see the colours of the tempered metal running along the sides of the weld
