The Somerton Man Case. The body of a man found on an Australian beach close to a major Atomic Testing ground, he was probably poisoned, a copy of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and an unbroken Code page found and associated to him. Set against a Cold War background in 1948, was this man a spy? We think so and this blog focuses on the evidence that was left behind and in some cases missed, the Code page, Dry Cleaning numbers, A Poem and a small, torn piece of paper bearing the words TAMAM SHUD.

SOMERTON MAN: Progressive 3D Image Post 3.

This is step 3 in the series with more to go:

Making progress, we've applied an 'undercoat' and have started on the skin texture, you can see it is taking shape now but there is still work to be done on detail including wrinkles/crease marks as well as the ear, mouth and of course the eyes.

The next steps are a little more complex but we will be adding more images over the coming days.

It is important that we get feedback and many thanks to those who have emailed me with their thoughts. Again thanks to Professor Derek Abbott at Adelaide University and of course Pete Bowes at
