That came out great, Hal! And the oars are pretty sharp, too.

It looks realistic. I like the sag in your roof also.

The Preserve looks good. So do the oars and everything else in the view but I love the roof sag!

Hal that dime looks out of scale but the LP is pretty nice.

Thanks guys!

D Frary asked me if it floats, and yes it's basswood. But it might not save a cast metal figure.

I am working on the dime Frank...

Hal, the edges of the roofs are quite interesting. The subtle dips and warps are very unusual in modeling. I may have to steal that idea.

How about more pictures of the whole thing?

That is really fantastic looking Hal. It is inspiring me to try it at HO scale. However, it my be nail biting and hail pulling to pull it off in 1:87th. What color paint did you use there? That color is spot on.

Louis, I mixed the color using cheap craft acrylics.

Bill I agree I need to add a few more.

Let me see what I can do in 3D printing for you.
I have round ones in O Scale I can add to the website. Don't have a vest type but let me see if I can come up with what you're looking for.
