Unfortunately, it seems like my toy soldier projects are right at the back of my mountain of crap! 😂
So, in the meantime, a lot of my Molatero work is just sorting and planning. That said, I do have a couple of actual crafting idea I would like to get on with as soon as possible...
The first is another little plane. Having done a couple of bi-planes I would love to do an early 1930s period 'racer' monoplane.I think that would look quite cool (excuse my dodgy doodles)...
Next, I want to experiment a bit with doing a peg figure that has arms. So far I have mainly painted on my peg soldier's arms, so I'd like to see what I can do with some pieces of lolly sticks just to make my figures a little more 3D...
I have done one pair of figures that had appendages, my two mini-peg figures and they had 'hands' of sorts...
|My 'minis' compared to my usual 50mm peg soldier. I tried out making some|
rudimentary hands out of craft foam with these so I could make different poses.
|Actually, I forgot that I had also tried out using small beads to make some|
simple hands with my D&D figures, but the arms are still just painted on.
And finally, still thinking along the lines of my little planes, I'd also like to explore a third peg scale. That is what I am calling my 'bead scale', as you will note that the little pilots of my bi-planes where simply small wooden beads.
What would a complete bead-soldier look like? 😆
Yeah, pretty tiny, but I'm curious - I'd also like to do more vehicles using the 'bead scale'. I have already done my little racing cars, but I'd like to use the same general technique to do some military vehicles as well.
|What about a armoured car or tank in this 'bead scale'? Hmmmm?|
Watch this space!
