    Heres the beginning of another 1/12th scale shop diorama. No, thats not a ghost, it's my cast urethane canoe builder before cleaning him up and painting him! He's going to have a great companion though!

    Nice doggy companion, but it looks like the canoe shop might be pretty chilly, with frost on the window and snow blowing under the door!

    Pretty cool Chris. But the shop's too clean.

    Warm that fellow up a bit-- he seems a little chilly. Might be a two or three dog night for him...

    Building this diorama might make a good article for WCJ... With lots of images showing progress along the way... Maybe even published in color? ;)

    And wine bottle sized thumb tacks!

    Looks good...but the lack of dust and debris renders it inauthentic, even if the wood stove is about ready to burn the shop down!

    off the mold....

    Got the canoe off the mold, except for gunwale work. 1/12th scales are pretty difficult, too small!!!! Arguably the smallest wood canvas canoes made???? Got the R.C. Cros figurine painted too! Hold on R.C., I'm getting closer!!!!
