Hi All, hope everyone's Thursday is treating them well.

I've been fortunate enough to pick up this toad in the last couple of weeks and thought I'd share a couple of pics for anyone interested.

Local gentleman was kind enough to move it along to me and I've removed most of the parts that came with it as they absolutely didn't do it justice.

Now will start thinking about what it will get for a build. Paint has lots of chips, scratches...er...I mean Patina, but will stay as it's got Art's autograph on it.

thanks for looking.
