New Little Critter

Postby Bob Roegge » Tue Aug 19, 2014 8:47 pm

Could not resist the temptation to copy another Ian Thompson design of a small critter. My modeling is not up to the standards of Ian so I hope he will not be offended by my effort. Primarily made from from paper, cardstock and balsa the structure is made to fit an N scale Bachmann Plymouth mechanism.

Painted with acrylics after adding a little detail.

Size is evident when compared to a U.S. quarter.

Purchased a Ian Thompson designed figure "Hank" from Schomberg Models to ride the little engine. Had to modify the figure to fit.

Very nice. I think you have captured the look of Ian's original model.

Looks like it could be a mate for my new critter.

Good to see you messing with Gnine still, Bob. I like the finish you have achieved here, it's really captured Ian's style.
