Much better than the master, Harry, and now I should work on a balloon being deflated - hehe. Well done BFM for taking on an unusual project, and well done to Geoff Rogers for working up the idea in FIMO putty.

Actually, resin should be lighter so there's a chance to give a bit more height to the holding wire.

Think of this, a UK harbour dio with a dozen of these guys - FANTASTIC!
