James, who is supported by MacIntyre in Leicestershire, has been testing his creativity over the past few months by creating realistic models made entirely out of blue-tac. The models range in size and often revolve around a topic or idea that interests him.
Model making: James’ story
Before lockdown began, like many of us James' schedule was full. When everything came to a grinding halt in March, his imagination began to run wild. He had always made models, but this time allowed him to develop his skills and soon he was swapping film nights for a chance to bring his creations to life.
