As well as being the descendant of a Titanic Survivor, and a Southampton Firefighter, it may surprise you to know that I'm also a freelance sculptor for the war-gaming (Toy soldier) industry. Normally I sculpt military or fantasy figures, but as a favor to a fellow Titanic enthusiast, I recently recreated the iconic London Newspaper boy - Ned Parfett.
Normally what happens is that I sell a master for about £60 to a manufacturer, who would then mold it and produce cast copies in lead, tin or pewter and retail these castings at maybe £3 or £4 each. The consumer would paint them.
This figure however was a one off gift for a private collector, so it hasn't gone for reproduction. I just thought I would share it with the community here.

Dave.
