Hi,

As two members have expressed interest, though I am not sure it really should be in this forum

Tony,

I am glad to see this posted as it provides a way to start conversations with people outside our usual community and encourages people to think outside the box. It provides good public relations at an event like you're showing and will hopefully generate more interest in what you and the rest of us are doing.

I think it always helps to promote the idea that engineers, craftspeople, and modelers can and do use both sides of our brains.

A little bit of whimsey is always welcome as well.

Tony, the children should really enjoy the Peppa Pig variation. It is cool to see other types of models and examples of Model Engineering.
