I have one more clown to paint.

On this clown I want to hang a billboard. I have an idea for this billboard clown that I will show you later.

 

So I searched the internet for circus posters that would be advertising a circus coming to town.

 

While searching I found this circus poster. Although it is not good for the billboard, I love this poster. It is so cool !!!

So here are the two posters that I will use.

I reduced the size and printed out the posters for the billboard. Here is the finished clown.

I have been thinking about the layout of this diorama.

I was going to build a single ring circus with the backdrop and maybe a small audience.  Kind of like this.

 

 

bm3_1-vi.jpg

 

 

But then shooting a guy out of a cannon might need more space.

I decided to change the layout to a street scene.  And have a “circus coming to town” parade.  Much more simple.

 

So here is the new story line.  The homie figure’s name is Choco.  Choco left the hood and joined the circus.  One day the human cannonball got hurt so they got Choco to fill in.  When the circus came to Choco’s hood, all of Choco’s old friends came out to see him.

 

Step one, I built a sidewalk.

 

bm3-vi.jpg

 

 

I separated the homies and some other figures I have into not in scale (too cartoon looking) and in scale.

 

These guys are too cartoon looking.

These guys are much more real looking.  These will be Choco’s friends.

Yeah come to think of it Dan, it does look just like one of our model car club meetings.

 

 

Except I forgot to add your character.  So I decided to add one more.

Thanks for the great idea.

OK, since I’m doing a circus parade down main street I’ll need a circus wagon.  So I searched for some ideas.

I needed to make a flat bed circus wagon for the cannon.  I have this kit that has missing parts so I used the tender coal car.

 I added some toy wheels and some wood filigree from Christmas decorations and came up with this.

With all due respect, with Jim's imagination there's no such thing as 'simple.'

I agree 100%... but I think you may have misinterpreted what I meant. What started as a single cannon and a homie.... is turning into one of Jim's great works of art.

Definitely no disrespect intended!

Since I will be shooting Choco out of a cannon I’ll need something to catch Choco.

 

Maybe a net? 

 

 

No, a net would be too big to carry down the street in the parade. 

I need something different.  So here is the story line I came up with.

 

 

 

Pete Choco left his home and joined the circus.

When the human cannonball got hurt, they got Joe to fill in. 

But Joe kept missing the target, until they found a target he never missed; an easy chair with a beer and a TV remote.

 

When the circus came back to the hood, all of Pete’s Homie friends came out to see him.
