A sidebuilding from my childhood farm

This is a model of an old sidebuilding at my childhood home. The scale of the model is 1:100 and the size of it's base 25*25 cm. The blossoming lawn has been created by scattering dyed sawdust on green paint and a layer of glue still wet. 

Asikkala home farm model, finished

Childhood home farm - old buildings

Shortly in Finnish: Tämä on pienoismalli lapsuuden kotitilastani Asikkalassa. Materiaalina on käytetty pääasiassa pahvia ja pienoismalli on upotettu lasikantisen sohvapöydän sisään. Jouduin tekemään pöytään ylimääräisen välipohjan valkopintaisesta vaneerista, muuten tämä malli oli sopivin pienoismallia varten.

Here's a few pics from the model of my home farm in Asikkala where I grew up, to be a gift for my father. Above, you can see all but one of the buildings in the model. The models I've created before and given as a gift, now I'll create the terrain around and build it inside a glass -covered table.

Pulut (Pigeons) - scratchbuilt wedding cake decoration

Pulut (Pigeons) - the comic wedding cake decoration

I've been drawing Pulut -sarjakuva (Pigeons -comics) for a Finnish young's community site, and like I've often drawn these pigeons to guestbooks and in greetings, I decided to create a decoration for our wedding cake of these comic characters. The same theme was seen in wedding invitation, where one pigeon 'accidentally' prod a ring closer to another pigeon - and the wedding cake decoration was made from this picture.

A non-gaming post this time; As readers of this site are mostly gamers, I'll say a few words for this piece's gaming use too; it's not difficult to stretch one's brains to have an idea of using this decorational model as a giant fish the PC's must fight (or can summon!) The model can also be thought a miniature.

Self-made dragon decoration

Dragon from side

Dragon from side

While originally designed to be a self-made miniature, arrival of D&D minis retired this fun experiment; The scales are made of glossy glitter pieces, which makes it look really special :)

The dragon is built on a wire frame, using a sort of modelling clay for body and paper meant for those super-light balsa-wood airplanes for wings.

Snoopy and woodstock

A small christmas gift. Made of wood, wire, filler/glue mix and dyed mattress filler tied together with wool.
