    think outside the box....

    One day, I was looking at a gutted coleman stove and thought, wow, great environment for a diorama. It has its own fold up stage complete with a backdrop! The whole thing retracts down into the cavity and the top drops down as if it was a real stove. I made a scissors mechanism so you can turn a screw on the back, and the whole thing drops down into the box. The tank folds up to hold my business cards as well.:)

    Horribly in-accurate and unrealistic! I magnified the picture as much as I could and didn't see those little spots of blood around the planking from grabbing the tack the wrong way. All my boats have them!:eek:

    Great work! :D

    wait a minute you guys!!!!!!!

    Dont be so quick to judge my accuracy!!! I'm not done with it yet!!! I knew I was missing something!! By the way, this diorama will be the 3rd installment of my work in "Hunting and Fishing Collectibles" magazine.

    i especially like the boots and tracks although you need a comlimentary diaorama of the tracks into the kitchen and a wife scowling.

    awesome work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:cool:
