Madame Tussauds Unveils Wax Figure of Iconic 'Singapore Girl'

Whether you find them amazing or just flat out creepy, there's no denying that the wax figures at Madame Tussauds bear a striking resemblance to their real-life counterparts.

And the newest addition to Madame Tussauds attraction in Singapore is sure to strike a chord with any travelers who have ever flown with Singapore Airlines. Modeled after current Singapore Airlines flight attendant Nur Surya Mohamed Ambiah, the lifelike wax figure was created in London and took three months to complete, according to

"I think this will be the highlight of my career. It is something that I will remember forever," said Nur Surya. "It does not happen every day and I am really very blessed."

The video below shows the extensive process of creating the figure: 

But while constructing the figure took weeks, the process to uncover the right model stewardess took more than a year as the selection committee searched far and wide for someone who best exemplified the "Singapore Girl" spirit, which is highlighted by grace, hospitality and a commitment to service.

Perhaps even more surprising, this isn't the first time Madame Tussauds has created a wax figure inspired by a Singapore Airlines flight attendant. The original Singapore stewardess wax figure was sculpted back in 1993 and therefore lacked the modern look that museum visitors would better recognize in 2015.

The new Singapore Girl wax figure was unveiled at the airline's training center on Tuesday but will have a permanent home at Madame Tussauds Singapore where it will be on display for visitors alongside a plethora of other famous figures.
