If anyone westward is interested, the International Plastic Modelers' Society Nationals are in Phoenix this summer, August 1-4, but you REALLY don't have to go outside where it can be just a bit warm at that time of year. If you have a day or two, plan on Friday or Saturday when the most models will be on display. There should be around 2,000 models there, yes, about half aircraft, but lots to see whatever your interest.   DF

Chuck-- I'm with Ray about reaching the pinnacle of realism... though maybe we should say "nearing" so there can be the possibility of an encore. This is WAY more than a model, and there is a great deal of satisfaction in just seeing such outstanding work. Your hand was a great background, as it implies so much more than simply being a scale reference. (I have always wanted to make a really large quarter to place in model photos.)

Nice bit of photoshop work to insert your hand so you can continue to pretend that you are presenting a model to us.

Well Chuck, you've certainly reached the pinnacle of realism. No matter how long or how closely one studies this model, there is literally nothing to break the illusion of reality. What's more, the studying is a pleasure! The construction, paint, and weathering all combine to perfectly portray the singular beauty inherent in a well-used piece of industrial equipment.

That should become an iconic photo. It looks like a giant has picked up a real hoist. It's positively jarring. I think that suggests you have created a successful model. -- Russ

Thanks very much! Greg, I should have videoed that. Especially the look on the cat's face.  Shocked

Well, this part is done, or at least I seem to have run out of parts to attach. I will try to get some final detail pics when things cool off; I  don't want to test the melting point of the 3D parts.

The construction pallet is 4" x 6" (102mm x 152mm). The wood sled this will eventually mount to will be 18" long.
