OK. this is why I don't have a proper post for Saturday. I'm a zombie, by now, but a day from now, this is going to look amazing. *fingers crossed* I'll be relieved to have it all done, though. Almost all the papier-mâché is complete, and I have 3 chambers to fill and I'll patch those fill-spots in the morning, and then I'll begin painting by midday. The wheel assemblies are a little lower than I'd planned, and I've ash-canned the fender thingies, and I've pared down to a Cliff-notes version. Anyway. All that really matters is good bang for the buck.
I've spent so many hours on this that I keep thinking about those folks who make enormous, elaborate holiday meals over the space of several days, all for the mere enjoyment of watching the family devour same in the space of an hour. Well, it'll be something like that. But it'll be fun.
Strongly suspect this will weigh nearly as much as the boy himself. Watch this space.
