we went to babbacome model village back in May (!) and i took loads of photos.

so to celebrate the fact i’ve finally got round to posting them, here’s a day dedicated to them

the place is just amazing.  you could easily spend half a day there.

it’s just great !

the attention to detail is spot on

and there’s always something to spot wherever you look like this car shop of movie cars

through to natural blending in with created (real trees in the background in the distance)

and annoying things like roadworks outside the holiday village

or confused toilet visitors

and nudists (that’ll cause havoc with your google ads, sorry!)

and who’s this ?  it’s hairy hat man, my favourite letter shaped character

great to see a line of bollards

and a traffic disaster

the sense of humour even extends to the toilet sign (which was full sized – actually the sign and toilets were full sized)

they were building an olympic stadium for 2012

signage to hel

and this brilliant load of runners containing various characters.

and on the subject of comedy characters …

070527_350d_img_8537.jpg

in the “world of favourite characters” they had this Matrix recreation which contained a no-dogs sign.

this bingo hall looked so fantastic

071106_350d_img_6946.jpg

i even went in to see if i could play.  the woman behind the counter thought i was mad and looked a bit suspicious as i was wearing my big camera.

071106_350d_img_6952.jpg

in the end i didn’t play as i would have had to be in there for 2 hours.  and i thought that on my own the fun might run out after 10 mins.  now, if i’d taken you all with me it would have been much more fun !

i walked past this yesterday and noticed she’s been replaced with a plastic 80s disaster which is a shame.  this photo was from september but i never got round to posting it.

the strange things on her belly are to stop pigeons landing on it.  works for beer bellies too apparently.

this chap in the parker was acting very randomly by the horse guard near, er, horseguard’s parade.  the poor guard was looking a bit freaked out.

luckily mr parker had brought a selection of old lady shopping trollies with him.  it took me back to my younger days when i would do something like this for hours on end for no apparent reason.  oh happy days.
