...I've got a couple of real life projects going on right at the moment so time at the bench is limited but I'll remember to take plenty of pics as I go along. I also like to see "how to's". That's one of the ways we improve in this hobby.

That's an awesome dio!. It looks so real in the pics untill you realise the background is your workbench!!
You've got a lot of talent inside you.
And you went to Galway? Lucky bugger!
My ancestors came from there - and I'd love to see the place for myself, but it's a long walk - and swim!!
Nice work, you make it real.

...thanks Mark, I can't wait to get back into to this again!
...thanks Bradley, your guess was correct. I built model cars till I got to high school, then I turned my interests to more important issues like girls and muscle cars. After I got married I started into model railroading, did that for about 10 years or so. Every now and then I get the urge to break out the RR stuff but don't, having too much fun with this again!..lol

..it's a scale 16" industrial light shade used a lot in factories and warehouses. It's based on the popular Ivanhoe shades of the day. Since I need between 9 and 12 of these, I'm making a mold for it. Once the lighting is figured out I can get the ceiling and upper floor done.
