Thomas the Tank Engine
« on: August 23, 2021, 02:52:26 PM »
After making the Blue train a few weeks back now a couple of people mentioned it looked like Thomas.
I think this was only as it was made from the same Blue, so we had a go at making Thomas.

This was the original train with the latest version I made today of Thomas.

The original Train thread is here, https://www.balloonchat.co.uk/balloon-chit-chat/train-11786/

And the thread on how Thomas came about is here,

This was the Thomas I made yesterday before the workshop to refresh my memory on how it all went together.
I have made Thomas about 12 times and possibly 6 times a different way putting him together.
We still come up with a better way last night during the workshop which I was able to explain so that was nice.
