Day 23 of the Advent calendars – just one more to go – gives us two sleighs (City and Star Wars) and a snowman (Friends). For Christmas Build Up, I realized today I screwed up a week ago and each model since the 14th has been off by one day! So today I made up for it by building Day 14, and then used leftovers to build a MOC of a kid on a sled.
Friends gives us a nice snowman. I like the idea of using the truncated cone for the base and the use of skeleton legs as arms.
Star Wars brings us another sled, this time using hockey sticks for runners, and presumably powered by the Force.
Here’s the three models together.
When it comes to the Christmas Build-Up model, I have an embarrassing confession to make. I realized today that I had accidentally started building models off by one day, starting at Day 14. I accidentally built model #15 on the 14th, and continued off by one until today when I discovered myself building the final model! To make up for it, I’m building the Day 14 model on the 23rd and posting a correction on each of the days from 14-23. Sorry about the mistake!
So Day 14 should have been this model, a cute little bridge:
At least I think it’s a bridge, but the rear view shows green instead of blue below it.
My model made with the leftover parts is yet another sled, but I swear I built it before even looking at the City and Star Wars models! I guess it’s just a sledapalooza day. This one is a different scale though, and has a rider.
