Smallfilms Fan Stuff

Until recently, Smallfilms merchandise was rather thin on the ground, so a number of people have decided to make their own.

If you have any home made Smallfilms stuff, send me a photo, and I'll put it in here.

dtom1.jpg (26153 bytes) David Tompkins is a bit of a Bagpuss Fan, and has bought what he can, though he really wanted a Yaffle.

Since nobody makes them, he decided to carve his own...

dtom2.jpg (30912 bytes) David is a teacher in Northamptonshire, and has decided to bring his passion for all things Bagpuss into the school.

Professor Yaffle's Library Board now takes pride of place in the school room.

I've no idea how you could see in that outfit, let alone drink!

"My wife loves bagpuss and makes cat clocks for friends and family.
She has made a bagbuss clock now........thought you might like to see it."

Cool!

Peter Totman decided to build a working O gauge scale model of Ivor the Engine

All the details were gleaned by going through the books and checking the drawings. They are surprisingly consistent and well proportioned. The only inconsistencies with the drawings are the appearance at times of balance weights on the wheels and an odd few rivet heads on the buffer beam!  

The locomotive was constructed from brass sheet. All the parts being sawn out with a jeweler’s saw and filed to shape. The chimney, water filler and whistles were turned up on a lathe.

Matt Edgecombe made this Professor Yaffle for his son.

His head, beak,feet, neck and shoulders move, but his left foot used to fall off sometimes until he introduced superglue to the mice on the mouse organ and they fixed him,
