Fun Town - Ice Cream Wagon.
Had this crazy idea about building a few animated wagon's that would run on DCC for Fun Town's market. The original thought's were to add movement to the 4mm scale humanoids that would occupy these stationary wagons, maybe a rotating head, guy serving ice cream, someone waving, rotating cog's / gears, steam cylinder's, and roof fan's. The animated wagon's would be similar in size to the market stall wagon's and form part of the same train. With very little pre planning, I jumped straight in and made three very similar chassis with a common mechanism for the steam cylinder's and then later decided to concentrate on one wagon to see what animations were achievable in such a small space. This blog covers the construction of the first wagon and although I'm quite pleased with the end result, I'm a little disappointed that no animated humanoids were made in this first attempt, however, I do now have a few idea's to try out on the next wagon.
Thanks for Looking..
