Three More Small Projects

As I said in my last post, I sometimes like to make small, quickly built scenes (kits) for that sense of accomplishment. Here are three I’ve done in the past couple of weeks:

Microscale (1/144) Book “house”. There’s no inside, just a cute facade. This can stand alone or be a decoration in a 1-inch scale house. (Kit by Robin Betterley):

Pocket watch scene (kit by Ginger Landen Siegel). I picked this up at a show. It’s micro-scale, the pocket watch blank is the size of, well, a pocket watch. The scene is paper made 3D. Four pictures get stacked with various bits cut out and wood, lace, landscape material, etc added for texture. Ginger specializes in these kinds of scenes, which are a French art form from the 19th century. I did one of Ginger’s illusion kits in a larger scale here.

Yesterday, I finished this one:

This is the “Pie Pickup,” a 1/4-scale kit from True2Scale.

I picked this up at the Good Sam show I went to in October. The kit contains *everything*–pickup, the art, dishes and placemats, pies, chairs, shelves, jars, crates, fruit, and various accessories. I added the grass.

Fun little kit. Much is 3D printed, so there was a lot of painting with tiny brushes.

I like little kits like this–they’re low-stress, and don’t take up much space when I’m done.

I’m looking through my stash for my next small project, and trying to decide where I’m going to put the Westville when it’s finished.

  1. My dad used to own a VW minibus just like your minibus but without any pies! 🙂
    All three of you micro mini projects require good eyes and steady hands, in order to execute all the minute details which you’ve so beautifully demonstrated: Well Done!
