Building Gallipoli , New Zealand's new tribute to those that served

Simply breathtaking, I have put up no 5 in the series showing the stunning work to bring the greater than life size figures to "life"


The rest are available explaining the story from the link.... My jaw dropped at the detail.
Weta are the people behind the Lord of the Rings props and figures etc.

An excellent series of videos Nutloose. Interesting to see that Episode 5 has had 25,000 plus views whilst the earlier episodes many fewer. Very much looking forward to a trip over to Wellington to see the exhibition.

Wow! That caused me to raise an eyebrow.
I must see that exhibition.

I visited the Weta Workshop in February this year whilst on holiday. Only saw the figures / items created for the Hobbit films, but they were amazing. Would love to see this exhibition, but NZ is rather a long way from where I live...

Tomorrow being the 100th ANZAC day I feel that I'm missing something special up here in Norway.... I plan to visit the graves of the crew of Sunderland L2167 at Sylling churchyard in the morning.
