man's model of the Time Machine
This Time Machine have I made of empty cereal boxes. It is hand painted with colored pencils and a black ink pen (not ballpoint pen exept for the signature under its base). To prevent the railings from sagging i have reinforced it with a toothpick under either side of it at the generator cones. The model is made 5:th - 25:th October 2003 and I devoted an average of pair hours a day to it. It is built in scale 1:12 och den är 24 cm (9,5 inch) long, 19 cm (7,5 inch) wide and 26,5 (10,5 inch) cm high. This depends on that the dish is the widest part of the Time Machine and the largest cereal box is precisely 19 cm (7,5 inch) wide and I wanted to do the model as large as possible ...

And now a little curiosity:
My Christmas tree in 2004 was so large that it reached the roof and the original glass pinnacle had no room, so the pinnacle had to be replaced with something else. With black, red, golden and red metallic paper I made a new pinnacle in a very familiar shape ...
These pictures are taken in 15:th January 2004 when the X-mas tree got green shots.
