A plastic egg became the starting point for this build.
|Plastic strips and tubes in various sizes was used and a N-scale train boogie was split and made wider to fit this build|
|I painted it in Stockholm colours and made the circular signs and logos egg shaped instead.|
|A simple base was made to finish it. It was finished for the Easter 2012.|
I had not planned to build another one, but I was asked to build one as a gift for a colleague who got retired.
|I wasn't happy with the build. All the time I thought that it looked bad and just felt like scrapping it, but a promise is a promise, so I went on with it.|
|I found out that we had some spray cans at work with the original colours, so I used them. Then I painted the roof with a gloss grey from Humbrol.|
When I was about to put a dull coat on the roof it suddenly dawned to me at the all gloss tram really looked like it was mad of porcelain. That effect doesn't show on pictures, but I decided to leave it like that.|
I had drawn decals and also signs for the roof but decided to leave it in the clean porcelain look. Instead I made new signs for the base.
|Now I am glad that I didn't quit because in the end I like this one better than the first one I made.|
