    I did this for Christmas present. I have been having a fit to
    share this little guy but I couldn't until the recipient got it...

    Kitty, that is just too-too! Too funny, and too cute.
    I love it!

    That took a lot of work to make. How many hours do you have in it?

    You know, I'm not sure. I worked on it six nights at work but I might only have gotten to pick him up about half the time before I had to put him down and, well, work. I did spend about 90 minutes on the very front of the top of head where I decreased the size. I spent about 20 minutes on the JPL under his chin but other than that, I'm not sure.

    A lot of it I had to do, un-do, redo to get it to look right. I have never made any kind of armor or any large project before. I stick to jewelry.

    It was really, really hard to mail him. I fell in love with the little guy and the people in my office had an absolute blast watching me work on him. When I finished him, one guy grabbed him and took off running around to show everybody. :rofl:

    He doesn't have the hat. Until he has the hat, he's just a regular Platypus.

    I would have loved to keep this little guy. I have some other ideas that I want to try out one day. I have more ideas than time and money for wire. :rofl:

    that's cute and all but he'd look better wearing japanese box-mail.

    That's marvelous work. I love the picture.

    I feel my obligation to my family is to keep them from getting too dull. Getting older doesn't mean you can't have fun. That is fun!

    It is a perfect picture. Congratulations on a wonderful job.

    I have two stuffed Sea Otters I picked up from Monterey. I wonder what I can find for them. Great idea.
