Some still know me from earlier days for many I’m probably unknown. Nevertheless, according eineigen months I have time to post my projects again. Hereby I want to make a start.

This is a birthday present for my girlfriend. Since she is totally Bulli-crazy, I thought to myself that I’m building her a Bulli T1. Of course, it should not only stand up for a beautiful model, but also have functions.

The Bulli is built entirely of wood. All parts I myself Customised. So nix bought and put together!
In Bulli slumbers a small 2.1 sound system. I have developed me a few parts from an existing small system, including a transmitter / receiver unit for Bluetooth, so you do not always have to infect the phone.
Since the Bulli has plexiglas plates I got the idea additionally incorporate an LED lamp. You can now project it different colors and nice to listen to music.

What a beautiful miniature. It’s very impressive and nicely done. This is such a wonderful gift and has a lot of character.
