What I've been working on lately.
« on: December 16, 2017, 03:38:50 PM »
Found a dragon skull at the pet store, in the aquarium area.



Tried to figure out what to do with it, and something just said "hood ornament". No, not for my jeep! For the fairy garden railroad my wife and I are building.

This is the general idea.




Except the eyes really needed to light up, and smoke needed to come from the nostrils. Lights were easy...




Mount the skull, remove the plastic gem eyes and mount the LED eyes and you have this...






Step two is to find the right smoke unit to install and plumb into the head so smoke comes out of the nostrils, or mouth and nostrils.

Well, you will soon have several rail lines, maybe depending on season? Santa Express, Turkeyfoot rail system, Cottontail railway, etc.? L@J
