Talking Microcrystalline Greetings ... again!!

Sculpting is a hobby, but I hope to learn much here.
I was out of pocket for several years while relocating, remarrying and retiring ... so now should have more ime to sculpt!
Started with blocks, of course, in my crib, I am told. Tried to ELMER's glue blocks into a robot in 1956. Adapted the head of IDEAL's plastic "Robert the Robot" onto the torso. REMEMBER it well!
First THEFT of sculpture was of a Marx Toys mass-culture army man, found here:

LOVED and COVETED the kneeling rifleman!
WHOA: had my first encounter with a TEACHER in about 1959, when she BENT a perfectly fine eight inch INSECT I had done for firing!
My latest classes were in 2005 with the fantastic IRON MAN Allen Peterson
