There are so many designers in Tinkercad that never get recognized, so I decided that I would start recognizing them on my blog. This designer obviously loves buildings as much as I do. They have been using Tinkercad since January 2020. There profile states: “I custom design HO scale homes, scenery items and much more for model railroads or dioramas. My designs are based on 20th century Americana style homes to capture true-to life realism in modeling.” Link: User Anderson Bihler Scale Model Company Ltd. | Tinkercad

The next building I designed in my Railroad Town was the Livery. My thought were: I had the Train, the train dropped passengers for at the Train Station I designed. If the passengers wanted to travel or set up a farm, they would need some place to rent or purchase horses and wagons. So the Livery was created. But, it needed a horse, a wagon, and the building.
Yes, I made the horse a lot bigger than it needed. This helped with the details when I scaled it down. The joints are their in case I want to pose the horse in future designs. Link to view the horse in 3d: https://www.tinkercad.com/things/jTh69Npb1Eu
Wow, it’s been over a year since I made a list of the audiobooks that I have enjoyed. First, I saw where Dennis Taylor wrote a fourth book in the Bobverse series. Why? The third book wrapped everything up. I will listen to it, and if it is entertaining, I will put it on the next list.

I haven’t listen to a lot of books this year, because I haven’t traveled much. I hope to do better this year.
In 2016, I created a 3d design of a Train in Tinkercad. It came complete with the train engine, coal car, passenger car, cattle car, caboose and cows. Blog post: 3d Print – Train Engine | Sarah Cath’s Adventures. Since I was prevented in 2020 from having too many adventure outside, I started creating a Railroad Town for my train.
During 2020, I have spent a lot of time in Tinkercad designing 3D buildings and other items to go with the buildings. Here is probably my final design for 2020, my version of Santa’s Workshop. I created the flooring first, then the decorating inside the building. Afterwards, I created the walls, windows, doors and finally the outside décor.
Okay, I only painted three Plastercraft Houses in 2020 – so far. After I finished the last two, I was looking through the box of houses that wasn’t damaged in the 2016 flood, and found the “Hot Rod Parts” building. Since I normally paint three houses at a time, I continue to look and found a second “Hot Rod Parts” building, and then I found a third “Hot Rod Parts” building. So, I decided to paint all three. One for my sister, who I started painting houses for many years ago. One for my other sister, who rescue the houses from the flood and one for me. They were surprise! Especially, since California Creations went out of business.
In 2020, I haven’t painted much, nor have I drawn much. Most of my time being creative was spent in Tinkercad. I used Tinkercad to create a replicate of the Houmas House. I have created many building for my Railroad Town. Other designers are asking “How?” or “Teach me!” Since it is Christmas Time, I decided to provide instructions on how I created a Christmas Tree using Tinkercad. The instructions on instructable: https://www.instructables.com/Designing-a-Christmas-Tree-With-Tinkercad/. Or you can watch the video:
Yes, I also created an angel to go on top of the tree.
You need to watch to video to see how I created the Angel.
