  • Modeling - Does this count

    It's 1:1 , was a kit with instructions and needed craftsman like patience to construct. [^]

    Rewarded with dinner when completed [:-jumprefect]

          I want to see the finished easel before I believe it ;o) I have assembled a quite few easels in my life, some easy, others impossible to assemble. None were ever really well made, stable and functional, and all are bad clones of ancient designs... Which is why I recently had a local mechanic fashion a metal one to my specifications... what a joy finally having an easel that doesn't wobble, which holds canvases solidly, is counterweighted, on roller bearings etc... (downside is the weight of 350 pounds ;o)

          I love the dry colors of the little timesaver-like module!

            Troels. You got it right.

            My girlfriend's son is turning 21 shortly.

            Linda & I decided to search for an easel that would take large painting and was sturdy.

            I found one via google, called the shop and we went down on Sunday morning to check them out.

            The shop demo was a bit wonky , but when I finished putting it together, which was a breeze, but took a few hours, it was rock solid.

            Here is a link, BUT we managed to get it for A$190.... :up:

            I will take a photo of the completed 1:1 finescale kit, next time I go to Linda's place

            cheers "M"

              It only counts as modelling when you get your gear off in front of said easel and someone draws a piccie on said easel taking great care to eliminate all the wobbly rude bits.

                Drawing would be easier and safer.

                Taking a photo, and then trying to Photoshop, it will likely result in a computer crash

                Gee, thanks Phil...I already have a hard time picturing Mario prancing around in a salsa, but now you've thrown nudity into the vision and its all gone horribly wrong!!!

                    Mario, the Mabef easels are above average quality, and I'm sure it will be well received.

                    My new easel demands a very large room The tiny painting on the shelf is 12 by 16 inches.

                        Holy crap! How in the name of painting would you do anything up THAT high? AND, AND mind you, its on WHEELS!?

                          Well, the front lowers to the floor, so I can handle canvases up to about seven feet high without a step. And it runs on rollers and is counterweighted via a parralel chain drive so I can pull it up and down with a finger.... The current canvas is six foot high by twelve foot wide, and it sits rock steady on the easel. Pure bliss The wheels are locked when in use ;o)

                            The "Linda" easel could extend upto 8 foot high so we purchased a small step ladder to achieve greater heights when painting. It's all first time stuff for us, and fun

                              What a huge piece, Troels!

                              Considering the nice dinner Mario got for completing his, you surely were invited to Odin's banquet for yours...
