Double Challenge
« on: July 16, 2009, 09:31:58 PM »
Graham has asked me to do the Balloon Chat Challenge so I have been trying to decide what to put on here.  I decided to do two models for this.  One easy model and one slightly more difficult.  But neither are too hard.  So feel free to try either of them or both.  Here we go then.  A scooter and a raccoon.

Hello everyone,
I was wondering if anyone was going to have a go at anything or if not is there a reason.  Are the models too easy.  IF they are I can always put a harder one one.

Everyone is very quiet lately.  Hopefully that is because you are all so busy you are too worn out when you get home.

Every blooming time!!!!

Nice one Graham.  

The above refers to my telling Graham that he always looks at what I make and improves it.  I like what you did Graham.

I had a go at it.

I tried to give the deck a design like they do sometimes.

Nice work Thelma and Graham.

I had a quick go at the scooter  - a bit loose but at least it looks like a scooter - a battered scooter but still a scooter. :D

I'll have another go later

I think I am going to enjoy doing this spot.  What I like is seeing how the simple plain model an grow and beome something more interesting.  If I am working in a busy event I will still be inclined to stick to my simple version because it is a good speed model but having seen the variations I am thinking I should play with the model more.  Its nice to see you having a go Sean and Ian.  Ok you too Graham!  I do like to have a character riding the scooter too it there is time.   Maybe I should make the scooter with the raccoon riding it.  :)

OK as promised the Mark 2 version - the first one I did wasn't brilliant but just having a go showed me where I needed to make changes and this version I'd be happier to give out - I'd need to get it made quicker though
