LADIES, have your cool facecloths at the ready because the Daily News is about to take steamy to a new level.

Warwick tradesmen have begun the studio striptease for the 2012-13 Warwick Workmen's Calendar where we tracked down 16 of Warwick's hottest workmen and threw them in front of a camera - lathered in oil, of course.

The calendar will be yours to keep in the June 30 issue of the Daily News, so mark the date in your calendar and prepare to replace it with something a little saucier.

The first tradie to jump in front of the lens yesterday was Hayden McNicol, of McNicol Builders.

"I actually feet a bit violated," the oiled-up builder laughed.

When asked to do the calendar, Mr McNicol was a little reluctant but, when a trail of his mates decided to step up and dress down for the occasion, he was all for it.

Mr McNicol's torso is no stranger to the eyes of the public, as readers may remember him from last year's Warwick Cowboys calendar.

The lucky woman who photographed the subjects for the calendar is Warwick photographer Angel Swift.

"It's something different, I usually do girls, so this is pretty fun," Ms Swift said.
