It’s a Small World . . . No, Really!

Okay, I can’t sit on this one any longer. It’s just too awesome.

Check out Becky’s Small World facade for her train layout. It’s a wonderful, colorful piece, and the addition of lights and people really makes it lively.

    Aww, I got all excited thinking it was a new model… :( Still looks incredible though.

    Are you perhaps planning to turn it into a releasable model at some point, Becky? The IASW facade is something I’d love to add to my paper model shelves.

    • Trader Sam:

      IASW has been on my list of models to do for a few years. I still have yet to decide what my next model will be, or when I’ll begin.

      Lately, I’ve been focused on ships, and I have been collecting a lot of reference material for Captain Hook’s pirate ship restaurant. That may be next.

      In the meantime, I still have to figure out what to do for this year’s Halloween treat. I hope I can think of something in time. Maybe something small like the mini Demon Clock model, but functional. Ideas are brewing!

  • Becky:

    Thanks! I’d like to get it out there one of these days! Right now I’m trying to find a monitor driver so I can get everything working on my old PC. It crashed yet again, so I wiped Windows Me and downgraded it to 98. Once that’s done I should be able to use Photodeluxe again which is what I used to create the parts.

    • Trader Sam:

      Wow . . . working with a 14-year-old operating system and using software that was discontinued in 2002 (replaced by Photoshop Elements).

      For those who didn’t know, you can download and use many of Adobe’s programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, etc.) while paying a monthly subscription fee. It may be more expensive in the long run compared to buying the programs (there is no rent-to-own option), but it certainly is easier on the wallet.

      Optionally, I recommend taking a look at alternativeTo, a website that lists alternative programs to ones you may already use (or would like to use).
