I finally finished....

Five years and nearly 2,000 individually fabricrated suction cups later, "Big Red" is done. He's almost four feet from base to tip top, and weighs in at about 75lbs. The rock that he is on is probably over a hunderd. The arm that is tucked up underneath the mantle is the hecto, which I finally got a look at after 3 years of searching in all the wrong places. Whaddaya think sirs and madams???

Thanks

I posted a picture in the gallery section, and it was up for a few days, and now it's gone. I don't get it.

And thanks TPOTH, that is exactly what I was trying for.

These are mysteries of the ether - maybe Tony can offer an answer.

But your picture is right there in the gallery.
