T-other stuff
« on: August 20, 2009, 05:43:07 PM »
The green plaque is # 3 green at the local Par Three golf course. I was roped into making a trophy for closest to the pin award. The car is 1/18 scale diecast. The base will be solid pine and is now in my garage curing the wood sealer. I am making a solid pine trophy for our new annual golf tournament. Not that I will ever win it, Tiger has no worries over my golfing skills. Regardless, it is a solid wood project, just doesn't have wings, wheels or a hull.

We had member who had three wins so I made him a smaller version to take home. The car is 1/72 scale.

Spring is in the air. Not loosing it quite yet. Just preparing for next summer flower arrangements. I found that these take a lot less maintenance.

Dusty and long neglected CH-113 Labrador banks made 1989 for my kids. They measure about a foot long.

Had to have one. This will be varnished with home made decals.

Done except for a few drops of liquid superglue to hold down the edges of the label paper markings. My stock is old and does not stick well to glossy surfaces.  The fictitious marking represents the local area which is called l'Acadie. It is a French speaking community where I was born and now reside.  Old history most memorable event was when the British deported the Acadians sending them away in long boats. Many reached American shores as far as Louisianan. The word Cajun can be attributed the the influx of Acadian refugees.

The models is from the "Toy d'Lou" collection. Unlike my other models, this one is meant for the Sunday's market and will not be in the Yearbook.


Sold at market 3 Sep 2017.

Another market contender. I am solely trying to recoup my modelling costs. This will be our last market for 2017.

I sold my Toy Sabre at market and can now afford to pay for the decal sheets I ordered. Now I need some ink for the printer as red now comes out pinkish.

Any chance you could show us a picture of the mechanism to get the coins out? I might just have to make one of those!

At the time I could not figure that one out so I just unscrewed the Plexiglas side panel to allow the money to slide out. I still have drawing for it somewhere. If you are interested I can duplicate them and do a tutorial on this style of banks. This will work for any helicopter.
