Thumbs up Original C21 prop head

That's awesome.

I would love an original puppet head, how on earth do you find out about these things?

Great to see you have another original item in your collection mate. Given your very obvious skill I am sure it won't be long until this guy is back to his former glory although considering the age and such like he is looking pretty decent as it is. Look forward to seeing how this fella comes along. Nice one!

Yes mate, when I find the time and courage the goatee and brown paint is coming off....
As a full puppet in Lunarville 7 moonsuit he`d look amazing

Superb Chris, Glad these works of art are in safe hands and getting the respect they deserve, no wonder you're the best at what you do when you have these beautiful pieces for reference.
He would look awesome in the space suit like you said.
Great stuff!
