This was the mongrel that started my dog with a bone obsession with T&J models. It has been affectionately nicknamed ”Digger”, though I still haven’t figured out why and I would have called it a gymnast on a cross beam.
I think that the first gallery picture is interesting as it is a collage of the Sketchup model, the real McCoy and finally Digger, all flashing similar poses. That is followed by a few profile pictures for the police mug-shot gallery.
After a while into other T&J builds I found that I could enhance the models (at least in my thoughts) by cutting hex nuts on the laser (gave up trying to make them on the table and band saws after nearly loosing 2 fingers and a toe).
The following is the “before shot” prior to the retro-fit face-lift.
The face-lift “implants”,
Presenting the new look Digger after the face-lift (or as she-who-must-be-obeyed [note the tremor in the typing] calls it ”new shoes”),
I gave birth to this model about 2 years ago and it is interesting to observe, that back then, there was ample room on the tabletop for my empty drinks paraphernalia as well as Digger. I have since had to build two garages/cabinets for the vehicles and needless to say the drinks paraphernalia are still empty…
I shall try to post a few more pictures of my past built models, not to brag or try to compete with the fantastic output from other LJ members but rather to try compete with htl’s quota of number of posts per day rather than number of days per post.
