Friend Mo took Von Tempsky and Titokowaru on a trip to Auckland for some much needed repair. I picked them up and they are now happily installed in my garden fighting their little socks off. Von Tempksy was killed at Te Ngutu o Te Manu (Ti’s pa) but the end result of the battles alas was not good for Taranaki iwi.

I have been trying to find the name of the man who made this lovely piece of work – and in my search did find this – definitely made by him. https://www.flickr.com/photos/domino_nz/97413994/ I think his name is Fred Thwaites but I am no longer sure.

If anyone knows, please let me know. I’d also recommend Mo as a fixer of craft works. He spent some time on this – and had to find the correct sort of wire, he added some new nuts and bolts and generally tidied up the two fighters.

So – a request for a name and a suggestion for a fantastic tinker. Will travel I hear.

Thanks Mo.
