Isambard Kingdom Brunel

I’ve just finished building a puppet version of the famous engineer Brunel.

Sadly lacking a cigar.

I started by sketching from some pictures of Brunel on the web:

And then built him in a very similar way to the John Cabot Puppet I made recently.

Under his clothes his body looks like this:

The head was a lot of fun to make. Have a look at the progression as I painted and decorated it.

Somehow Chris is planning to manipulate this puppet and the John Cabot at the same time,  I wish him luck, strong arms and really hope the shows go well for him.

Cabot and Brunel, who deserves the most fame?
