I always look for your builds. Anyone can build 'em nice and shiny ...but you have a natural talent and a great eye for detail. Always enjoy seeing your builds. Wish you would post more.

Keep up the great work!

How big is your home??? When I see the size of these creations you build I can't help but wonder where you put them all. Beautiful builds. So real. Thanks for sharing them.

I can see that you will build yourself out of apartment and home soon. Beautiful work...and I am amazed that none of it is airbrush work. Do you do all this by hand or spray can???

Knowing that you are using the rattle cans makes your work all the more amazing and highlights your skills at as a modeller. I am not usually a truck person...call me a car guy...but I always enjoy your builds. Fantastic stuff. Keep it up...and happy house hunting. My job has kept us moving for all 38 years of our marriage and we have lived in a string of rented and company homes. Looking forward to the day we have a place of our own and we don't have to wonder when the next move will come.
