Y-front mouse and the twins's models

I start to make models of Y front mouse and the twins.
The base is made by wire and foamed styrol then put air-dry stone clay.
I used [New Fand] Japanese modeling clay.

When it got dry, polish with sand paper. I spend 2-3day to polish and it's never finished.

Thames tunnel

I've been to London Open House this September. I know it's long ago.

Here are the photo of inside of the Thames Tunnel that was made by Marc Brunel.
I recommend to come early. It was kind of popular and I wait in the ques forever. 

It used be an entrance of the tunnel, now that's already filled and it's a huge cylinder shaped space.


















The people from Burnel Museum explained how hard and costy to make the tunnel that even didn't work for transporting goods. They run out the money to put the lift in the end.
So, they open as a amusement centre, has a souvenir shop and even dinner party over there.

After the interesting talk inside of the tunnel, people want to get out as soon as they can. Whaaaa!

London Drinker

It's a magazine I picked up at my local pub, The Elderfiled.
Boris Johnson and Ale man on the cover and all articles are about drinking of course.
I like the image of woman with a pint glass. She looks very energetic and clever.
I kind of understand the feeling of that, when I drink a few pints of Ale.

Raki and nuts on ice

I went a fish restaurant in Turkey, drink tukish spirit "Raki". It's like a pastis, aniseed flavored strong drink for Ottman turks!  This drink come with ice frosted bucket and nuts with ice. So you can enjoy cold drink with cold almond.






















Also I bought a candy frost with pistachio nuts.
It looks bit dirty but taste good.






















I decorate my christmas tree with it.

Istanbul

I'm in Istanbul now. There are a lot of interesting culture clashes.

Love the underwear shop. Big and cozy.















There are a lot of beautiful abandoned art nouveau buildings.

Also they likes a mix of old and new. Turkish TV is the coolest TV ever.
