Something new and something old..

Again last night I had one chore before I could move to my hobbyhut and continue with the gate. My son´s birthday closes and he asked for a train cake and who am I to deny that kind of request! So, without any experience about cake decoration I embarked on a mission to build Thomas the Tank Engine! I´m pretty happy about the finished product and I think that my terrain skills helped little bit here. Hope that my son likes it!

I will attach the wheels when I put the whole thing on top of the cake on a candy railings.

So what happened at the hobbyhut? Not much because it was late but something anyway.

Now I think that I have enough stairs, for a while, and I will move on. What will be the next step? Well, I don´t know. Something that pop´s in to my mind when I return to the hut.

Some work with the stairs

Before I could continue with my own projects I had to fullfill one important promise last night. My three years old son found our old soccergame from the storage and was immediately fascinated about it. Because some time has went by from the last mach, the game itself had suffered some damage. Just to prevent any tears and to slowly bring boardgames into my son´s life I promised to fix it as soon as possible.

After some glueing, fitting and straightening the game looke little bit better.

Now I just have to wait that the glue dries on the legs of the unfortunate players, but those in place and then the game is ready for some father-son rivalry, Greatness!!

Ok, after this I had some time to work on the gate. Next up was to construct some stairs, again. First I assembled a deck where the stairs would end.

Then I used the same technique as before to construct the stairs. The more I do it this way, the more faster I am. It only took aprox. 15 minutes to build the stairs. Nice! Have to figure out where I can place more stairs =)

What a GREAT looking terrain!!

I am a big fan of fantastic terrain. Not just because those look great but because I fully understand how much time and effort it needs to build jaw-to-the-floor-type of terrain. Here is a prime example of that kind of terrain and of course, it´s made by a Finnish hobbyist!!
