My current project (Warning: Nerd Alert)

Recommended Posts

So my friends and I have been having so much fun at Winterfest this year that we just had to learn more. What better way to figure out the way things work that to recreate the most iconic part of Winterfest: the world’s largest Christmas tree. 

Step one: make an Eiffel Tower

Step 2: Make it realistic

Step 3: Make it a tree

Step 4: Program the lights 

 

As you can see this is a work in progress, but it was fun to learn how all this stuff works.

I wouldn't call that nerdy my man.  Educational.  Might even go as far as to be put in the illustrious "For Science" category.

We are FAR from the days of daisy chaining lights together to cover the front bushes eh?

Thanks!

Yep. Special RGB lights and very complicated software.

Just out of curiosity, what do you plan to do with this? Personal Christmas decor, for use at the office, or to place presents under next year? :D

Not sure what the long terms plans are but it has already been booked for a wedding in the spring.

Or perhaps the start of a Kings Island Diorama At Entertrainment Junction? I’d like to see that myself.

It’s not G Scale so there is some debate as to whether or not it will end up in the layout. Currently myself and the other builder are against it. It will likely end up on display somewhere.
