Making things

F has been making things that he got for Christmas.


This is half of the fruits of the Doctor Who 3-D Model Making Kit. The rest of it is a Dalek and a Cyberman's head. Notice that you can see the inside of the Tardis

This is marked as for 9 years and up, so it's pretty impressive if you can build it with a bare minimum of adult help at the age of not quite eight and a half.



The aim of it is to get the little surfer dude around the circuit automatically:



And here it is in action, with his mother's piano playing in the background:



A pleasant weekend is being had by all!

I would totally have built the TARDIS and K-9 first, too! Good choices, F.

And yes, the Shark Run is impressive - as is mum's piano playing!

Looks like it's been a very productive weekend.

My sister-in-law gave me the Doctor Who model book as a belated birthday present; they were fiddly for my clumsy mid-thirties fingers.

As far as the models go, the Dalek's a bit disappointing, by the Cyberman head is a really well-crafted paper model.

Oops, you've just reminded me I got the Doctor Who model book last Christmas and I haven't done anything with it yet. And the Terry Pratchett Unseen University one.
