Jak and I had the pleasure of having our Grandson Jack for a
sleepover last night, and trying to keep him occupied without just sitting him
in front of the TV, is a challenge. Now Jack has a very inquisitive streak in
him, and he often sits with his Gran and crafts away making cards with her. He also
sits and watches me making my models. He asks question after question, just
like a six year old should do. So, to try and help his developing mind, I asked
him if he would like to build his own model. “Yes” came the reply. So I printed
out the the Small Goods Shed for him, and away we went. He enthusiastically stuck
the printed elements to the card, and I dutifully cut them out for him. We had a
couple of little mishaps along the way, and with a little help from Grandad, we got there in the end.
He was so
pleased with his results, he’s done a video tutorial to go with it. Just click on the video below to see his efforts. Now he reckons, the next time he comes to stay over, we have to build something bigger. What have I started?
My name is Chris Heath. The long suffering husband of the of the very talented and wonderful Jak. I thought it was about time that I started this blog so that I can show you the working progress of my model train layout, Wynyard Lane. Call back often to check on my progress and wish me luck.
