    How I Build Dioramas in 1/16th.
    Hello John!

    Beautiful work! Is this to be part of a display? museum setting? Is there a story to this?

    My first model loves were ship models. I really was a nut about wooden ships and everything about them. I did move onto aircraft of the first world war. And then I started to discover, MODELS, just models of anything. Anything, everything! -I have seen models of staircases that just enthrall me! A customer friend of mine made a superb model of a stand-alone cement mixer, the type used at construction sites. -I have always been involved with models and model makers, but I never had thought to return to "wooden ships" until a few years back, one of my bosses asked me if I knew how to make "stuff look like distressed wood?" He proposed a test piece, and when I returned it to him, he pronounced "Wow! You really know how to paint "BADLY" -I mean how to make it look bad!"

    Here's the result of that test.

    How I Build Dioramas in 1/16th.
    These two photos I found online, but the work is mostly mine and or directed by me. My right hand man, painter, was Abraham Morales, he did the decks, railings and mast. We had two painter helpers, and a team of men directed by Abraham, applying Z-Grip,(Bondo). -We used more than 80 gallons of the stuff!
