The Trombone Clip

(if you’ve clicked the trombone link above, tell me that doesn’t look just like a giant paperclip)

Been having some glorious sunshine (though horribly windy) and spent loads of time ‘autumnising’ the garden and thinking big thoughts around mini-ing.

Just got back to working with the players in the band and roughing up a trombone for the other part of the brass section.  Then I realised the second figure (for whom it was intended) couldn’t possibly play it as his cheeks stick out too far and he’d never get it over his shoulder.  He’s Mr Oval and he’ll have to go with the hose pipe horn instead which is all in front as it were, whilst Mr P has the trombone.  Such as it is.

I do love paperclips.   This ones pretty big.  The miniature funnel for the bell of the trombone needs building up a little towards the back and is generally not fully attached  yet so if you blink it may well fall off, but his hands are not too bad for holding the paperclip in place.

And the big thoughts?

I’ve said I’d not build another house but there’s this ‘thing’ that’s a-growing-of and won’t go away, so I might, just might end up doing it anyway.  Sort of UK 1930s styling, but as it’s still festering away in my head I’ll let it grow a little more before I blab too much 😉
