Thomas The Tank Engine And Friends
« on: July 24, 2021, 11:10:20 AM »
Danielle had a few large orders to sort out this week and asked me to help making the trains and Fat Controller.
It was a busy day but we got everything just about finished in time......................
But was a little rushed in the last hour.

As I had never made Thomas and friends before I made earlier in the week a couple of prototypes.

Picture 9 was a variation of the Train I made a while back and seeing if we could make that design into a quick'ish Thomas The Tank design.
I don't think it worked, this is the original train, https://www.balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/train-11786/

Perhaps I just need to change the proportions on the cab? I might re-visit this when I get time.

I changed the proportions for the Fat Controller and liked his look.

Then it was over to Danielle's to make the designs and some of the other trains in the series.
We chunked up the Fat Controller a little.

More of the designs. The Red over the centre of Thomas was a little bold but un-inflated balloons
were to short to fit around the engine section so we had to go with inflated 160's.
