Bit of a show off moment!

Post by cjfenney »

!!THUMBSX2!! Hi everyone, well after 6 long years of dithering, I've finally finished my Old Penny Arcade. Most of the work was converting the old market stall and painting the boards with sign writing enamels. The best bits have been tracking down some fun machines and giving them a bit of an mot and painting the little ticket signs. I've had to buy cheap and cheerful machines to get me started, but I'm hoping to buy ones I particularly remember playing on (a proper Parkers Carousel, Easy Push, Bell Fruit Penny Special etc) as I go along. I hope you like what you see...I'm having a bit of a rest from painting now, as it's sent me over the edge SkEpTiCaL :HaHa:

Yeah, the Mrs said she wanted plenty of colour to cheer everyone up! :D It's already booked to go out on private hire (even before it was finished!) and hoping to get it out to some local events in the summer hols and Christmas!

Thank you, absolutely! I'd been finishing off a little Coulson roundabout too, so took a lot longer than I thought it would, so nice to see it all done now!

Thank you so much; had to draft the Mrs in to draft out Lady Britannia's face, but other than that all my own work and very proud of it now it's come together. !!THUMBSX2!!
