Choo Choo Productions



I've been itching to show you all this.



As most of you know over the last 6 month or so my husband Chris took up model making and I have to say that his last model is fantastic, it is a row of shops with a public house on the corner.



He wasn’t happy just making a basic row of shops so he altered the model and made it look like the Fish and Chip shop was on fire, ok he did use my Copic Airbrush to make it look smoke damaged but as it is so brilliant I’m going to forgive him this time round.



I made a video of it because I wanted you all to see the special effects that he has made to go inside of it.








Some close up shots of the Model.



If you click on the pictures you will get them to full size and see even more details inside of the shops (fittings and all).

That is so amazing, wow, i am a fan of miniatures too, my friend here builds anything, they even have a shop/display where people can come and look, she has some stuff on e-bay, not sure if it is sold, will try and get a pic from her, post to my blog and let you know, she even makes the jewellery, you should see that!!!
Have a lovely day

Oh my word. Absolutely amazing Chris. I was impressed just looking at the street and when the lighting kicked in I needed to shout my hubby to come and have a look. Well done. We were at Beamish yesterday and the backs of the houses look similar.
Thanks for posting Jak.

What a great job you've made of that Chris. I've helped my Mum and Dad build a fair few OO models in my time and they take a lot of patience and skill to get looking that good. It is also such a clever idea to put your own spin on this model and will make your layout really unique. What next? model people and a spot of decoupage inside the buildings? I'd love to see what you come up with for one x

Debbie Pamment said...

WOW Jak - that it's just AMAZING!!! My mum used to build model cars - she got pretty upset when we 'played' car rally with them - LOL. LOVE that your fireman has a shop on fire - tooo funny - they all have a touch of the pyromaniac (in a good way!). Love that he used your airbrush system - will show MY hubby it has uses for him if he wants then maybe I'll get one - hahahaha
AWESOME job guys!
xXx

Linda W said...

your hubby is very talented (as you are). I had to show my wood carving husband your video...he loved it too.

Zoe said...

LOVE it!! Tell Chris he is a VERY creative man and I know just how much time and effort goes into these. I used to work for an architectural model firm and the projects would take months to build with a whole team! Absolutely LOVE his attention to detail and all the little items inside and that meat tray!! But of course I was blown away when the fire turned on. Absolutely brilliant! xxoo

Merry said...

Wow..that is so fantastic...love all the detail and such a small scale.

Absolutely amazing. Have you thought about putting a smoke generator or two in there, or does the idea of heating elements, oil and cardboard in one place offend your firefighting sensibilities?
