  • Trains for Girls

    G'day all,
    Just had these picked up.
    I was extremely pleased at how they came out. I don't normally make stock trains in girl colours, because they sit and sit, so these where a special order.
    Enjoy

              Thanks Steve

              WD......... mate you sure know how to give a blokes ego a boost
              The whos-a-whats-its, holding the wheels on are wooden axle pegs. I stand a heap of them up in a board that I've drilled with 3/8" holes and spray them gold using an enamel pressure pac.

              G'day Lance, thanks. a lot

              Kim, I had fun painting these as I don't usually do them for little girls. I liked the touch of the names that their Grandmother wanted. I cut those from 3mm MDF, sprayed them gold and fitted them in place super glue.

              Sunlion, I had fun putting the colours together. Thanks.
              Regards

                        Those are beyond cute, John, and your paint job is just fantastic! If you lived closer, I'd buy one in a minute. And I usually don't like girly-girl stuff!

                            John, let me tell you a story: A few years ago I was standing in an aircraft hangar talking with Eileen Collins after she had come back from giving a flying lesson to a fellow who wanted to learn how to fly a particular antique airplane. While we were standing there talking, a gentleman walked up with a little girl who appeared to be about 9. He told the little girl to tell Eileen what her father had told her which was "girls can't fly".
                            Eileen grinned, said let's see about that and took the girl for a ride in the antique plane. The child had the ride of her life........ you see, Eileen Collins was the first female pilot of the space shuttle and the first female shuttle mission commander. She told the girl to go home and tell him he was wrong. Girls could do anything they wanted.

                            Just because we're "girls" doesn't mean we don't love to play with cars, trucks, planes, either toys or real ones.

                            Love ya
