    Thankyou...

    Kathryn,
    Thanks so much, it means alot to me that others appreciate scale work. I love scale stuff and this is a way to join modelwork and my love of canoes together. :)

    Diorama shots

    I'll ditto Kathy's comments -- it looks stunning from here. Building in full scale is great work, but in model scale, and with the full diorama... WOW!!!! The "shop" doesn't even look sawdusty!

    What if.. you got a good, high-resolution picture of the diorama, that could be printed up poster-size? Could this be merchandise at the WCHA store, and possibly other venues? Wouldn't even have to print one up until someone ordered it.

    Just an idea... bounce it around.

    Couple of Dwarves I know want to go in and finish that canoe.Don't let them in.I've seen their work,all gnarley and such.
    Not a few people I know would love to shrink into this work.
    I love the tapered ribs.

    Dwarves are totally gnarley...

    And again, the detail amazes. It's beyond me, absolutely.

    Thanks guys, I got another I'm finishing up, I'll post photos as soon as I'm done. The 1/12th scale canoes are tough to make, the smaller they are, the harder to do. I love to do the dioramas though, fun to mess around with the little details, stuff that takes a while to pick out.
