General George Washimelon


               George Washimelon

Mrs. Kinch are away for a few days - but we spent a very pleasant afternoon last weekend with some expatriate American friends at an early 4th July BBQ. 

The above was my contribution to the communal pot - General George Washimelon; pre painted, scale uncertain, antecedents doubtful, limited edition one of one. 

But more on him anon.

  2. That's brilliant. We are hosting a July 4th BBQ in Madame Padre's honour (not proper spelling) and I shall steal that.

  4. Don't wish to appear negative about the General, but I suspect it may be a homecast copy. Just saying.

    1. I was wondering myself - it might be something with the hat perhaps.

  5. A spitting image of the Old General, down to his wood pulp tooth!

  6. To be stricly accurate, shouldn't his tooth be a wooden one?

  7. It's the googly eyes... they're hypnotic.
