Madame Tussauds Sydney, Australia: Strewth! Alf Stewart gets waxed

Madame Tussauds Sydney enjoyed having Ray Meagher aka "Alf Stewart" get waxed at Sydney's Madame Tussauds in Darling Harbour tonight.

The Home and Away veteran is understood to be the first local star to be announced as one of the Australian attractions to appear in the museum, which will feature more than 70 wax figures.

Meagher has submitted to hours of painstaking measuring to ensure his wax sculpture is as true to life as possible.

He will join a large contingent of Australian sportspeople, politicians and stars in the million tourist attraction.

Merlin Entertainment Australia director Edward Fuller won't reveal which other Australian stars have been selected for the local exhibition, but he has said extensive research has been done to ensure the right mix of the famous and infamous.

"The key thing is that there will be a really strong line-up of local stars," Mr Fuller said.
A team of artists is working furiously to have the sculptures ready in time for the opening. Each wax model requires about 20 artists, from sculptors to painters, and can take up to six months to complete.

"The hair is all individually inserted into the head," Mr Fuller said, adding that capturing the "character and atmosphere" of the subject was the artists' goal.

To assist in this, many of the celebrities immortalised by Madam Tussauds' artists donate their own clothes to help create a sense of authenticity.

"That's the icing on the cake," Mr Fuller said.

"Not only can you get up close and personal to your favourite star but they're actually wearing the clothes they might have turned up to the Oscars in."

Come with me and let´s take a trip
Where the scene is tough and the folks are hip
I can´t tell a lie ´cause it ain´t no myth
I´m talking about A Hundred Twenty Fifth

Foxy ladies everywhere
Skin tight jeans and jazzy hair
Clothes for the body, shoes for the feet
And lots of tasty things to eat

One Hundred Twenty Fifth Street
The people and the concrete
The hottest spot to work and play
Main Street, Harlem, USA

Original paintings on the walls
Music stores and bingo halls
Apollo´s gone, but that´s OK
There´s lots of music anyway

The Baby Grand is still going strong
Celebrity Club rocks all night long
Sikulu Records is on the case
And Bobby´s chillin´out in the same old place

Lots of folks have passed this way
Malcom X and Billie Holiday
Fidel Castro, The Commodores
Heads of State and troubadours
The Count, The Duke, The Pres, The Bird
Have bought music and that´s my word
Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder
Have all come for Harlem´s thunder

Marcus Garvey and JFK
Meadowlark Lemon and Doctor J
And Doctor Martin Luther King
All came to Harlem to do their thing

Louis, Jack Johnson and Ali
The heavyweight to name but three
Bill Bojangles and James Brown
Spent their time in Harlem Town

Con-men, poets, saints and sinners
Three time losers and all time winners
Politicians, fools and sages
Enough to fill a million pages

So take the trip and come alive
The A train stops at One-Twenty-Five
Where I was born one August day
On Main Street, Harlem, USA
