Mickey Mouse Circus

Mickey is automated. As the train runs along, he shovels coal into the engine.

Mickey Mouse Circus

 

A scrap clockwork unit with 4 wheels was used as a base to make this item. I designed off as much reference material as I could get, but also took some creative license here and there. The Mickey and Minnie figures are cast in resin from a latex mold, and the metal work was made up of sheet galvanized iron.

The train sets were built up using 2 scrap Lionel Engine shells, which were later painted up to suit.

The coaches and caboose were handmade after I produced the artwork from reference material. All these items including the Mickey in Tender etc. were also handmade.
