Hey there, all!

I'm an old-timer who grew up with Gi Joe in the 60's and am working on my second childhood, but with some much better skills. I spend more of my time writing mysteries and science fiction stories than I do getting to play with my 1/6 scale figures, but I'm also putting together some scale buildings from Alaska and Canada for displays.


One bit of advice: if your wife says "Why can't you build something like that for me and my Barbies?" NEVER say "Sure, sure, whatever."

Because if you do, you will end up building a New York City brownstone from 1910...

Welcome to OSW JBen!

You’ve got some impressive building skills there... very motivating!

Looking forward to what you work up next!

JBen, welcome. Nice diao's. We may have a lot in common! I'm more of a vehicle and support systems guy as well.
Getting back to you, I get the impression to are from the Great White North from your displays.
Keep it coming! Looking forward to the next one you come up with. How about a Log cabin.

Impressive builds, and love the staged scenarios. The polar bear scene made me smile. I could see the bear trying to climb up and invariably knocking the ladder down. Yours scenes have a lot of life to them. Look forward to seeing more.
