Nativity Scene – Part 3


It’s that time of year again. The Nativity Scene demands an upgrade.
Last year was a bit of a downer as I started on the backdrop too late, it took far too long to make and was ready around New Year.
This year I made a new ground-/road-section and added vegetation. In time!
As we celebrate Xmas tomorrow, on the 24th, I have to run off and buy the last of the food, bake some julvört (a Christmas bread flavoured with porter, ginger, clove, Seville orange and other exotic stuff. Excellent!), glaze the Christmas ham and drink far too much mumma.
There will be a post later with more details of stuff used for the Nativity Scene.
Enjoy the pics and have a really great vacation.

Crowdfunding Watch – 3D-printing – 3 smaller campaigns


We start this time with a modern shipping yard, useful for setting either modern, near future, future apocalypse or even SciFi.
You’ll get an assortment of useful stuff, like a forklift truck, containers, fences, oil tank, pallets and other goods for just NZ$ 10. A great price!
A very nice set of scatter terrain, indeed. Absolutely worth a look, and you have until December 22 2018 to do just that.

The advent calendar is back, or rather a collection of fantasy and/or SciFi scatter terrain for a very modest £2 for each collection. 25 pieces in each collection, at least.
You also have the opportunity to get the Modelling Miniatures books that I reviewed here.
I’ve got some samples from both the SciFi and fantasy range, and I hope to get a couple on the printer soon, hopefully this weekend. I’ll show you the result in a review-post as fast as I can, but as we’re making some repairs in the cellar that means my printer is currently hiding from all the dust. All that work is probably finished today. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, check out what’s on offer before December 27 2018.

This is really neat!
These guys scanned real trees and made them into 3D-printable models.
A great idea that will give you some really realistic miniature trees.
10 different trees for $10. Great value.
Well worth a look before December 22 2018.
