Last year I was approached by Pendon Museum to assist with creating new figures specifically for the Vale Scene. A day was spent with Pendon volunteers dressed up in 1930’s clothing, in poses depicting farm workers, people shopping and people in conversation. 18 figures were created in total with more planned, including some scans of children from the local primary school in Long Wittenham.
The figures are being released in batches throughout the year, with initial releases available exclusively from the Pendon museum shop or via their website. At present 8 figures are now also available from the Modelu webshop.
Pendon have also been running a Figure Painting Workshop led by Tim Shackleton, with practice figures provided by Modelu. Each participant also receives a 3D scan and a figure in their chosen scale. For more information on course dates see the Pendon Website.
