2015 ART: HOBBIES: Model cars of Second Life

Model cars of Second Life.
Linden Endowment for the Arts 
Lots of kids build model cars.  Some grown-ups collect model cars--they usually don't have time to build the cars.  Too busy.  Or they have forgotten how to play.  The people of Second Life build and collect.  No mess.  No workroom. And besides the people of Second Life have remembered how to play.
Bonnie and Clyde?
  • What are those metal cylinders next to the headlights?
  • The History of the Vehicle in SL - a Linden Endowment for the Arts Project
  • Showcase will run to May 31, 2015
Batman
  • Give things time to rez clearly and take your time through the displays.
The General
  • Be sure to get notecards from the info signs in each area.
Christmas
Individual builders may sell these tribute cars.  One advantage of building in virtual worlds is that the creator can make duplicates in a few seconds. So if you make a car, you can sell it and still have it.  In fact, you could make physical copies of it:  Shapeways.  And sell those.
