    I have been around a while but I still consider myself a newbie!

    Hello from Melbourne Australia. I'm here at work at the Cancer Council Victoria. I don't have squids - the closest thing I have is five goldfish in a bath tub in the front yard.

    I'm a bit of a toy maker and have been trying to design a giant squid toy but so far they have just looked like a penis with tentacles. I need to turn the design upside down.

    :roll:

    I have some octopus things - charms, toys, bath plugs, etc.
    Also did a small octopus/squid zine a while back.

    Cheers, KRin

    Hi Krin,

    Cool! Good idea -- it's good to have some frame of reference for who's who, so this new forum isn't just for newbies.

    An octopus/squid 'zine? Sounds interesting... was it for kids?

    Re: Not quite a lurker

    try taking a look at the fact sheet for some inspiration...and maybe try to flatten the fins a little... ive seen several plush squid that could be misinterpreted if the tentacles werent seen...

    Avast, Krin!

    As it happens, I'm planning on scratch-building 1/8 scale models of the giant varieties of squid. (I cut my teeth scratch-building a 1/8 scale short-fin Mako shark, a few years back.)

    How are you fabricating your GS toy? If you ever want to talk shop, just sing out.

    Yours truly,

    Clem

    Squid zine

    If anyone wants a copy of my little squid zine, just drop me a PM with your postal address and I'll post you one. It's a little big a file to email.
