Customizing: 3D chess game for Star Trek figures  
The things you cannot buy, you have to make with your own hands. A motto a lot of people in former Eastern Germany lived by. Well, I have to thank sharp2799 for this idea! She got me thinking.

So, today I made this and I am very proud of it! It’s all things I had lying around anyway - the clear plastic from action figure boxes, the brown round thing God knows where (I never throw anything away in case I can use it one day) and I upgraded it with some old FIMO (putty), and I cut out the round game form from an old credit card. The brown checkers were made from colored paper which I also have in all color variants, and added to the clear plastic plate with the sticky sheet that protected my newly bought camera screen. The only thing I had to pay for were the clear plastic beads that hold the smaller game levels. Well, I bought some more things while I was in the crafty shop, but that is not the point ;)

The chess figures I already had as I own a small chess game for my figures. You should see all my doll house accessories. Basically, everything that exists in the big world can be bought as a miniature as well. Amazing.

Thank you ;) I knew you would like it. I have been thinking about it the past days, getting ideas how to pull it off and realized it is quite simple, if you think about it.

Just please don't ask me to do it again - once is enough!

Aw, that's so very cool! Awesome--I'm very impressed!

Thank you very much! Once I set my mind to it it was quite easy to do, but I had to change a few things as originally the did not work out. I wanted to cut the frame from wood first but it broke.

Sorry for the edit, I keep forgetting that I have such a nice Kirk icon now ;)

A very nice icon, indeed! :D

Haha it looks as if your Spock icon is reacting to my Kirk icon ;) We have to bring them together somehow.

Hiya, so nice of you to drop by! Thank you!
I am seriously falling not only into Star Trek fandom but also watching everything William Shatner ever did. I need a time machine ;)

But expect more Star Trek pictures in the future.

But I need to show you something. Look! Look!
