Terrain Tuesday - Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016)

One of the treats to come out of Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016) is not one but two miniatures displays.   Spoilers coming for those who are concerned, so turn back now!


Early in the film when Pee-wee befriend's Joe Manginello,
Pee-wee gives Joe a tour of his hometown, Fairville,
by showing him his HO scale model of the town.


It's a small town so the full place can fit on what looks like
a 12' x 12' display in Pee-wee's backyard.


It includes Dan's Diner where Pee-wee is employed as a cook.


There's a model of the Fairville Library where
one of Pee-wee's many admirers, Emily, works.


The Tire Repair . . . of Fairville.


The Barber of Fairville.


The Fairville Fire Department.


The Garage where Pee-wee's former singing group, The Renegades,
used to rehearse before their untimely, nasty breakup.


There's Pee-wee's house with a tree house
in the backyard tree that has yet to be realized.


It's a lot to admire.


When Pee-wee eventually makes it to Joe's B-Day party in NYC,
Joe returns the favor by showing Pee-wee a scale model
of his own on the roof of his New York residence.


Joe's model is more extensive
and mostly made up from his imagination.


There's even a Dinosaur World section.


It also has a Glitter Mountain
complete with Pixies!



Joe's model includes Fairville and even Pee-wee's house
with a miniature model of Pee-wee's backyard miniature Fairville!

It's great to see a new Pee-wee Herman movie after so many years and fun to see some cool model work in it.  See it on Netflix if you get the chance!

For purposes here, the term Terrain is used broadly
to cover 3D and 2D maps, foam, felt, and such.
