Made this for my son for xmas Ned Kelly was the famous (or infamous) Australian bushranger.Ned made his own armour for himself & his gang & used it at their last stand , Ned was shot in the legs captured & eventually hanged. Size of Ned is 11" x 8" & was taken off a drawing on the net, Cheers Peter

That is a great looking piece and thanks for the history lesson. It runs in my mind that I have either seen a documentary on Ned or I saw a movie about him.

If you have been around the board very long, our old Aussie buddy JohnB told the story of Ned a couple of years back to accompany a cutting he did.
Johns' Post is here
Wonder what the old bloke is up to these days.
Waiting on warm weather to break out the saw. (And yes, that's Comic Sans)

Nice cutting Peter - I think you've done a great job of converting a picture to something that can be cut out.
I sorta remember that as well Tony, haven't seen it in years
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
