Long long time a go, a Sister painted some figures. You can check it out here ->Let's make a present ... Selfmade 3d Print "Friends"<- Well - I had to give them away before being able to make some pictures. Now that Christmas is over and more time available, my friend took the time to take some pictures of the figures. I was presented a big thanks and a present for Christmas from his family. Glad I made them happy (despite the difficulties I had).
Hello everyone, So this is something special. Not only that 2 days ago I thought I wouldn't be able to paint over the rest of the year, but this is also some kind of a very personal present. But from the beginning - 2 days ago I got a short text message from my friend (you know the one I am always barbecuing with). He asked me if I was at home and if we could meet. I said yes. A few minutes later a big rescue vehicle appeared in our road, so I was a bit worried, then remembered ... well, he in fact is paramedic, so I took it lightly, while some people on the road were looking for something that had happened and so on ... you know that story. Long story short: The friend of his mum is a big fan of LGB (Lemann Groß Bahn model scale train in 1/43 scale or so) and he always wanted to have a personalized miniature for his displays. Partnering with a fellow scale train fan, they had found someone who made a 3d print sculpt of them. Unfortunately those miniatures didn't come in color so my friend took them and some reference photos and asked me if I could ... do the magic of colours on the figures and return them in time for the birthday of his mums friend, which is shortly before my travel to Japan in 2 weeks. I didn't know if that would be possible, but then I got a call informing me that I had been selected for readiness duty overnight before my last shift week, which means that I would sit here and do nothing for 3 days. Hell yeah - why not. Gimme dat! So I took the figures and said yes. I think this is an awesome, very personal present and knowing that I was asked to make some black figures into coloured ones makes me happy. I contribut to someones birthday present. Haha. I did that before, but not on such delicate figures. No pressure, Sis. No pressure. Well then - Lets go: The figures arrived like this: After I cleaned them using soap water and then water, I used my trusty Mr. Primer to get a base coat on them. That needs to dry now. More updates later. I think if I don't loose my patience and willingness to do everything in one run, I should be done on wednesday or thursday. We will see!
