I bought this kit shortly before I left Sussex, and started it then. I have always been fascinated by Tutankamun, and one of my earliest forays into my parent's bookcase was to look at a book they had which was published to coincide with the big Tutankamun exhibition held at the Britsh Museum in the early Seventies.
I lived with my parents for a year when I first moved up here, and that enabled me to save enough money to go on a once in a lifetime trip. So it was fairly obvious that I would pick Egypt - despite my dislike for heat!
Our flight landed at 10.30pm local time, and by 9.00am the next morning, we were in the Cairo museum, and heading for the Tutankamun exhibits... I was not the only one walking round with a huge grin on my face after that, and saying "I can go home now and be happy!" Fortunately, of course, I didn't, because there were a further fourteen amazing days to go and the memories of that trip will stay with me forever.
- Love the design, will look spectacular when finished
- Brings back a lot of happy memories
- Will fit with my small collection of Egyptian memorabilia
- Still a lot of work to do
- Navy aida. 'nuff said!
- Lots of blending filaments and metallics.
So - Finish or Fling?
Verdict: Despite the huge cons, I really want to finish this!
