antique d2 project 8 by amoebabloke antique d2 project 8 by amoebabloke
ok so here is the latest pic of the d2 project, ive had some fantastic feedback so far so thanks for all the nice comments, but the question remains what the hell am i going to do with it once its finished.
i could stick it up on ebay and sell it to the highest bidder but thats realy not my style.
would rather it go to someone with a genuine love for this sort of thing not someone with deep pockets who would buy it on a whim.
there has been talk of an online raffle over at my regular haunt b3ta.com, i would like to raise enough to cover my time spent making it and my materials and a few quid to fund the next project, once that figure has been reached a percentage of the profit would go to charity.
just an idea at the moment i can see this being a bit of a pain to set up, but we'l see how things go.

I'd consider bidding, though I'm not sure the cost zone you're considering. Also, dimensions would be nice. Beautiful model!

this is a very old pic of mine check the date, i have given up trying to sell , many have tried, but none have come forward with the cash.
the piece is about five and a half inches high, and looks much better than this now, take a look at the antique d2 desert pic.
£1500+ postage, post to the states is exorbitant btw,the price reflects the time and energy spent over a period of nine months from start to finish, it seems nobody wants to pay up so it sits on the shelf in my house for now

Hello! I represent the Web TV Show Prop Freaks and this item has you on our radar. We'd love to talk to you further your d2 project. I see you finished it in 2006, but never opted to send it to it's perfect hom. We think it would be perfect for our set. Let's talk further, at your convenience.

Cheers,

This is incredible, I hope you find a good buyer, if anything I would be interested in buying one, and believe me, I have no noticeable deep pockets.

Oh this is wonderful. You are very talented! My 10 and 13 year old sons think this is awesome. There is an art gallery here that sells metal sculpture made by local artists. I have purchased several for myself and as gifts. Perhaps there is a gallery near you that would do the same? You have a lot of talent.
