Complexity doesn't necessarily make for realism. Your stuff is out-of-the-ballpark-and-into-the-next-zipcode good, Chuck!

 

Btw, I sent you a pm the other day. I'm betting you've got your notifications turned off.

I love your work Chuck Doan.  I could look at it for hours.

Your one of, if not the best, diorama builders of all time !!

Dang! You guys are good! 

 

I can't even begin to compete with some of the stuff I see posted in this thread. For starters, I rarely if ever build entire assemblies, like some of the engines posted here, from scratch. But I do like to scratchbuild details and smaller parts.

 

Tonneau from newspaper dipped in watered down Elme'rs glue, shaped and left to dry and painted with craft paints. The welting is thread:

Quarter window latches out of bits of styrene, brass and sewing pins. A little out of scale, but as small as I could make them and still have them work:

The cargo box of this Mack:

Blanket and tiedowns:

Seat and seat springs:

Some very well made stuff on here.

 

I just recently started scratch building stuff from brass. Here is a class III hitch and receiver I made as my first project.

Nice work on that diorama Richard!
 
 
Thanks all for the nice words! I can't get enough of the things you guys are posting here. I wish I had a fraction the fabrication skills in plastic and metal shown here. Some great imagination skills too!

A little late on this subject, but Harry, your examples are terrific. I've often wondered If the tonneau I made for my Bentley would have been better in papier-mache, and you proved it.

Man there are some talented ARTISTES on this forum! 

A pic of the pump that I built for the fire-truck conversion, maybe not my absolute best but by far the prettiest.
