Finally, for some ridiculousness around which I can wrap my consciousness

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frontier Former Editor @ 2:49 pm

Some of you may know I’m a scale modeler in my copious spare time, and I’ve modeled some strange things.

Take the left-handed violin, for example . . .

And yes, there is such a thing. Charlie Chaplin had one made from a right-handed violin.

 But then I ran across this little tidbit today . . . . a 1/3 scale, working model of a tabletop fan.


At least it’s nowhere near the level of ridicularity of the past four years.



  1. wow. those are great

    happy new year by the way.

    come visit the gimcrack sometime. we miss you 😦

  3. If it’s working, it’s not a model. It’s a FAN! Little fans are so incredibly useful.

  4. Happy Ukranian Christmas! (tomorrow)

    Which also happens to be my birthday. Stop by casa az for a virtual drink if you’re around … missing you!

    I only have your Picassohead and scary dancing elf to remember you by.

  5. Buon Giorno, Senor FFE

    You can now buy a 90%-sized replica of a Spitfire

    Couldn’t you encourage your Department of Defense to buy several (score) kits for you to assemble

    It would enjoyably keep you out of mischief and is cheaper than rocketing you to the Moon

    Looking forward to your coming posts


    Best wishes for the New Year

    Yr obedient servant etc

  7. I’d go to any party that featured a band like that. What is it, gay gypsy commandos?
