Vespa with sidecar in 1/6 scale

Well, for my birthday I got a Vespa with sidecar, but not in my scale. My 1/6 scale world won the scooter.

Danny clings to the wind shield while Steve is trying to get this thing moving.

Wooden cabin project

Another new project is a wood cabin. I plan to do the 4 wall pieces first, then the floor and the roof. I will try to connect the pieces with magnets. Then it is easier to store the hut away.
First finished part is the wall with the fire place.

Horse halter

I made a horse halter from leather straps and metal loops.

Semi-annual Barbie convention in Munich - spring 2015

Today was the semi-annual Barbie convention in Munich. Again I found nice things for my collection. Some are fitting for the 60s/70s, others for 1900.
I even saw an expensive Karl Lagerfeld Barbie doll and it sold! (I did not buy it!)

Mini Teddybears suitable for 1/6 scale

I did the little red teddy from the "Little Red Ted-kit" (3'') from Emily Farmer. Many years ago, when I was still a teenager I bought the kit at a teddy convention and started working on it. Somehow I stopped and just recently I found the unfinished kit in a drawer. So now, 20 years later I finished this bear.
After a quick search online I realised this kit is still available.

A friend kindly gave me the pattern for the bear on wheels.

School boy project - shoes

Here is my first try on the school sandals, also known as t-strap sandals. I am not entirely happy with them. Making these small shoes is pretty fiddly.

School boy project

Ricky was willing to part with his new school bag for this project. I am planning to do a little English school boy wearing the traditional uniform.
I made a head from polymer clay, painted it and glued hair on top of it. His school bag is done. And the traditional snake belt. If you are interested you can read more about English school uniforms here.
Currently the boy is wearing some substitute clothing.
