We got a call to come and see the piece before it traveled to Fulton.
Time is getting tight, but perfection is Don's motto.
Apparently Sir Winston needed a few touch-ups before making his grand entrance to Fulton. Here you see him being lovingly buffed and polished before a final sand blast occurs.
Sir Winston needs a bit more sparkle to his eyes. A light brush of a special artist's compound should do the trick.
Once the piece is assembled, this will form the top of Churchill's podium.
Don chats with another visitor, the Mayor of Chesterfield, Missouri.
This gentleman is filming the process for a locally produced documentary.
Here's the plan for the finished project at the Winston Churchill Memorial Plaza.
A few days after we visited, the heavy bronze pieces were trucked to Fulton and assembled on site.
Ta-da! The finished product.
Congratulations to Don and his hard-working crew. He's produced yet another masterpiece.
Am I ever lucky. I know some of the coolest people!
