Keith Newstead is the UK's leading creator of 'automata' (moving models). He has made models for Madame Tussauds and the Tower of London.Review:
..kids will love it...At 5.99, it really is excellent value for money. * Belfast Telegraph, Dec 2000 * I itched to press out the glossy coloured shapes and make up the 3-D Egyptian tomb complete with moving corpses in 'Mummies', and the UFO model which abducts a human at the turn of a handle in 'Aliens', both by Keith Newstead. Some young friends did complete the models and they were ace! Modestly priced for such distinctive quality, including six pages of background information and cartoons.
