Barge Engineer Commission

Here he is, the Barge Engineer...

The commission was from a gentleman who worked in the oil industry all his life - right from the discovery of oil in the North Sea.  He wanted a figure, of himself in his younger days with the full 'Canadian Tuxedo'  denims, boots, 70s shirt, moustache and a McDonald T hat.
The McDonald T was an aluminium hard hat which has long since been banned due to health and safety, but some do still adorn houses in the North East of Scotland....
