That is really great art. I met Marcel several times on exhibitions and I learned a lot from him. Furthermore he is a really pleasant fellow.

Yes! He has the eye that sees, the mind that processes and the hands that reproduce.

I sometimes use a 4x5 view camera in the field. I especially enjoy the days when I "see" images to make almost everywhere. Some days I see nothing because it is just not right. It is a very internal and individualistic process.

I admit I have had problems seeing details to include in believable miniature, and have not thoroughly practiced the art of reproduced decreptitude because of this. But Russ' magazine/book and this forum have truly opened my eyes to possibilities and processes. I need to relax my pursuit of precision in my bridge project and model something for the sake of the art.

Thanks Marc

Carlo,
I don't know....I pulled these off his Facebook page, but he may have a thread going on one of the German forums like "Schmallspurtreff" or "Modellboard".......have not looked, but if I run across one I'll post the link.


Jacq,
That arm issue sounds serious....hope he is well.


EDIT:  Marcell does have an SBS going over on Schmallspurtreff (it's in German, naturally).

  Last year he slipped in the garden, tried to break his fall and dislodged his left elbow, tearing dsome tendons.
  He spend till October in plaster and needed extensive physio. The last time we met, he was nearly fully recovered.
  The movement of his fingers was still an issue,  which was not having an influence on his modeling.
  After that he had to catch up with a lot of work......

  8-9 May we will see each other again and maybe later in Juli / August depending on you.  Grin Grin Grin

  Here is Marcel's own website with lots of SBS on his modeling : http://www.feldbahn-modellbau.ch/
