Took a break today to play with something else.



Doctor Baker here started life as a 54mm (1/32) cowboy. He was wearing the pork-pie hat and a long sleeve jacket, but that's where the similarities ended. I extended his waist length coat with my favorite substance: hot glue! I also gave him more hair and made the scarf out of hot glue too!

His arch-enemies invaded the layout on Halloween:

Didn't know -you are also a Dr. Whovian Becky. Is there no end to your interests and talents?

I'd be interested in knowing how you made that scarf out of hot glue. Are the Daleks and TARDIS paper models?

The TARDIS is plastic made by Running Press. I bought it at Books-A-Million. The Daleks are paper models I downloaded from the Project Dalek Forum: Project Dalek Forum and they're close to O Scale 1:48 in proportions. So, they're a might wee compared to a 54mm Doctor!

To make the Doctor, I first extended the coat to knee length by building it up one strip at a time similar to how you would do it with "snakes" of clay except that I had to let each one cool before adding another row. After adding the hair (just more glue on the sides of the head), I decided it would be better to paint what I had before trying to make the scarf. If I tried to add the scarf and then paint it, it all would have been just clear glue and I would have had a hard time figuring out where the scarf ended and other parts began.

So to make the scarf I did what I do for a lot of glue parts (i.e. arms, legs, etc.). I squirted the glue out in a strip on the glass top of my desk. As it was cooling, I rolled a bamboo skewer along the top to flatten it a bit and when it cooled completely, I trimmed the sides with my X-Acto knife. I did both long pieces and then added a small "C" shape to connect them at the top. Then using the blade, I carefully pried the scarf off the glass by sliding the knife between the scarf and the surface. I glued the trimmed piece to the figure and gave the long bits a bit of a twist at the knees so they would look more natural. After that I just had to paint stripes without making too much of a mess.

I won't claim it's simple, but it worked!

Well, I'm getting closer! My "other" layout is up and running so Tom and his TARDIS are in their proper home now:



And Independence Hall has moved back to Plasticville after 6 years of Disneyland service:



But more importantly, there's a naked tree in our living room with an enormous amount of empty real estate (well, carpet) around it just waiting for me to fill it up!

Dear Becky:
You just have to tear out your red carpet and have grass green carpet put in.
Love what you have done
Miles
