MAN-E-NEWS// Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine from Hoakser…

After a brief hiatus from the customising scene, UK based graffiti artist Hoakser is proud to present his latest piece, Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine! A one-off custom piece created from an abandoned Thomas model, the figure has been given Hoakser’s usual high quality mix of sculpting, melting, distressing and hand painting to create the meticulously weathered and beat-up train you see above. As with Adam Pratt’s past “Thomas the Rage Engine” custom, the shock factor of seeing the much loved children’s character out of context still remains, the sculpted black eyes a particularly clever touch… Measuring 16cm in length, 15cm tall, and is 9.5cm wide, Thomas the Unbuffed Tank Engine has just been added to the Hoakser Etsy store, priced at just £69.99 plus postage… Stay tuned for more Hoakser customs later in the week!
