Congrats on the house! And, on the successful move! Those always wipe me out - especially when I unpack my built models and survey the inevitable damge ... Still, now that I pack them in ziplock baggies, at least any loose parts are still there for re-attachment.raser13 wrote:Yay! I'm in my new house!!!!! Now I just need to unpack. So this weekend will be shopping for parts for this challenge.
I've already got a pretty good idea what I'm doing for this build. Especially with a year to do it in I'm going to go all little big. And I even have a plan for the barrel clip that I have been we xtra challenged to put into the mix.
I'm going to try to mix in as many plastic utensils, glasses, plates,cups, and cake decorating stuff as I can. Really anything made to work with food.
I like these challenges, it's great for people newer to the hobby, or newly returning to the hobby ,to see that you can use almost anything in a scratch build. Or that you don't need to spend a fortune on parts or kits to make mods to your models. Heck you don't even need a kit just some plastic yard sale signs, some pens or makers, a glass or two. And you can make almost anything. Just takes looking at everyday objects in a new way.
I'm still playing with my designs, getting them finalized. I like to play with shapes & designs on my computer - I'm still in that phase. I am thinking of making more than one build for this - at least two.
I've been haunting my local dollar store, and looking at those I pass with plans to go back to see what they may have that my local one doesn't ...
