Nice one

Hope the Hamster likes the 'Glow in the Dark' effect. You'll have to make a sign 'Harriot Hamster's' Spooky Castle' - 'Visitors Beware'

Great stuff

Just a tip - from Bitter experience.

Do not keep a Hampster in your bedroom.. They are nocturnal and make loads of noise when you are asleep - or trying to be.

Enjoy

Im amazed it took me an hour or so to get the main parts together it took longer cleaning and disinfecting it. Still got to connect all the large compents together and finish off the interior detailing.
I let Tomcat do most of the decaling (stickers) it kept him amused for a while Im keeping it in my room but i can sleep through anything ive managed to sleep through something exploding outside my bedroom window.

Yep and im looking at getting another cage to add on to this one when the hamster gets bigger lol. Had a move round so i could get the cage to fit in a five minute job turned into a five hour job, turfing out useless stuff and tidying up. Had to do the same to my dads model room as well to get an extra set of drawers to give me more space for the cage. Think on reflection dads wishing he'd got me a hamster years ago as my room looks tidier than ever (think its because I got rid of a large oak trunk that i used the top of as a dumping ground )

Well the hamsters home is built and in place at Sam's House. The hamster, known from now on as Fruit Loop, seems to really like living in a castle.



The west wing was bought this morning for Fruit Loop to live in for when the east wing is being cleaned.



and finally here a photo of Fruit Loop having it's afternoon siesta after a long morning of exploring the castle.



Sam seems to have really cheered up and it has taken her mind off her depression now that she is looking after Fruit Loop. Just hope this doesn't take over any modelling time
