Balloon Snap, week 2. Thomas the Tank Engine
« on: April 21, 2013, 09:30:12 PM »
Hello all, well I was very happy to have won the last balloon snap however I didn't realise how difficult it would be to choose the next model for you all to have a go at, I decided to keep it to a 1 balloon model. I hope its not too easy (or hard).

I have chosen this Thomas the tank engine, I came up with it about 10-12 years ago at a train themed event and its very useful if you want to make a quick train rather than a bigger more complicated train. The thing that makes this model look good is the artwork, I would like to see some artwork on your versions however I will mainly be judging on the balloon twisting.

I really look forward to seeing your versions. I will judge next weekend on Sunday or Monday.

Rob :D

Well its time to announce the winner of this weeks Balloon Snap. I have been looking over the photos of your Thomas the Tank Engines and I found it really really difficult, the problem was that they are all so good, but I made my decision and the winner is . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Do do do do do do dooooooooo (that was a fanfare)

KJ Entertainments (or Dan)

As I say it was REALLY difficult to choose from all the excellent entries, so well done for winning :D

So Dan, it is now your turn to post a photo of a model for others to try and replicate, I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us :D
