Scenery made from paperclips…

“Hello Al.

How would it be to make everything in the attached photos for the price of a handful of paperclips? People not included. I kept detailed notes and photos on the construction of each model – SWINGS, ROUNDABOUT, SLIDE and the PARK itself – including the public convenience. But I’m unsure whether folks would be interested in so much info. Perhaps if you would like to post the photos they could write in and tell us.”

Let me know what you think.

Best wishes.


ps Note the goings on in the bushes – and the queue for the ‘Ladies’ – and the cause of it!”

Wow! Rodge has been hard at work. I thought they were superb.

Please do keep ’em coming!

And don’t forget to have a look-see at the latest ‘ebay cheat sheet‘.

  1. It all looks good – detailed instructions would be appreciated!

  2. Rodge,
    Beautiful work. I strongly request that you take your notes and pictures of how you did the creation of the scene and create a small .PDF e-book. Then I urge you to please share it with us. I would be one of the first to request a copy and I am sure that others would be interested in getting a copy as well.

  3. grate work i like it.

  4. this is one of the most amazing scenes Seen i n Awhile- Great work on this – Love all the individual stories on the same setting – Really keep the interest . Excuse the spelling erors – I have my glasses being repaired and am typing with a magnifying glass- Just cannot miss any modeling info – Although I am as bliund as a bat without them.

  5. WOW! what an imagination. A lot of time and patience went into this. Keep up the good work.

  6. Like very much. Would like details.
    thankyou very much.


  7. Al, Rodger, this could possibly be termed a new art form, not Origami but Wiregami! Some sketches or progress photos would be helpfull, as would be a hint of how you joined the paper clips i.e. superglue, cold/hot solder etc?
    Great scratch built job!!!

  8. WOW! Fantastic! Clearly a tremendous amount of detail work was done. A remarkable achievement, indeed.

  10. Rodge,
    How do you make the steps on the slide look so natural? Everything is square.
    I seldom get things to line up evenly.
    Fantastic model!
