Thomas Leatherboy


Cheers on this wounderfule figure made by Alex as a gift and limited edition for the forum meeting in Kampen (NL) 2010.


The idea of this figure was born in the chatroom of Bennos forum, where my good friend Thomas showed his picture wearing a lederhose. His plan was to visit us in Kampen, so we asked Alex to make this small German beer drinking figure. I am proud to show this figure here, even some of my friends did a much better job as you can see on Bennos forum.
This figure deserved a peddestal, so I bought a small beerglass, filled it with foam, and some gleu for the drops on the glass.
A special thanks to Alex, who did make this posible for us!

  7. What I remembered..

    a famous Turkish poet Orhan Veli wrote:

    " If I Could be a Fish in a Bottle of Raki "

    (What is raki, grape and anise with a heavy alcoholic drink of Turks)

    Cheers (again)
