First, i tried to connect this holder with a superglue, but, it always broke down again...
 
Then I have it's stuck with a two-part adhesive, after two days in this position:

Now, such a build retreat to the length, and never seem to be ready...


... but, where is the fun factor?


Sometimes, much more fun are the heavy paths and the journey is the destination... ;)

 

Green = Leek, comes from a PLAYMOBIL®- set

Rosy = Flower, comes from another PLAYMOBIL®- set

Yellow = Hat, comes from a Kinder Egg- Gimmick figure

White = a piece of polystyrene

Well, yes, the flower pot, I could quickly make it on the lathe...

... but, where is the fun factor? ;)

 

Here's a possibility if you have no lathe on Hand...


The hat loses his sun protection...

Congratulations on your fantastic progress so far, Boban.  I am really enjoying your creative use of such a wide variety of materials to produce a very unique model.  I like the way you think!

And like many others, making those hinges out of crimped earing clamps just blows me away!

 

Cheers

Alan

I somehow got behind looking at this and I'm blown away! You use of, what we once called "Mom's Sewing Basket" 50 years ago, is imaginative and looks spectacular!

Thank you all for the kind words, I appreciate that very much!B)

 

As a modeler, you must always keep your eyes open for such things. 

If we look a second time, these turn out to be true treasures...;)

 

The only disturbing thing is, the time it is applied to search,  Things that you know exactly how they should look, and that they are also available somewhere, but just then, they are nowhere to be found... :P
 

Just like these three things for the planned dio...
 
... it has taken an eternity to find this, and again as long to keep it in the hands...
