    Hi Dave, great diorama! I love all of the mini scenes you have built into this. I even noticed the bird house on the sawdust tower Really fantastic work! Thanks for the photos.

      So I guess these boats are all "scratchbuilt" since the whole process starts with the cutting of lumber from the log. [:-bouncy]

                Some wonderful modeling... great coloring and interesting themes and mini-scenes, right down to the multiple bird houses throughout the diorama. The 'bug' with the re-cycled finder is a really nice touch, along with the subtle body rust. The masonwork is nicely rendered as is the saw shed roof. Well done Dave.

                Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

                  What a beautiful dio, Dave! The big and smaller pieces of machinery, all the details and characters, make this scene a great eye taker.

                    There's 12 birdhouses. There's birdhouses all over Davetown. Seems to be a lot of mystery and folklore about them. I'm sure I'll know more by the the time my next book comes out.

                      I got nine of them, i think,

                      The 'bug' reminds me of several cars that drive around here... rust spots, newly primed areas, a new mismatched fender, but, most importantly....... riding high on a set of shiney chrome BBS 22's

                      The more I look the more I see, very nice Dave, keeps me coming back to see what I missed the last time.
