Great planks, especially the ones with the knots in them. Just curious, what's the surface they are sitting on with the raised dots? Some sort of textured paper?

Thanks everyone. MDM that textured surface the planks are resting on is one of my secret weapons !!! It's a paper towel.

A bit more detail work with bamboo today. And seems such a big mess for a little hut on the workbench in my small shop.

Trav,

Your work continues to amaze! I marvel at the creativity you conjure up to produce such realistic effects in miniature. Mahalo for sharing.

-Tom

Thanks Tom !!! Great to hear from you again. I hope all is well in your part of the world. I laid some of the floor planks of the hut today. I guess I really didn't need to detail the underside but I did anyway. Thanks for stopping by.

Those planks look awesome. Actually it is important to have those planks on the underside to maintain authenticity in the event that the hut blows over in a typhoon/monsoon/cyclone/hurricane/etc.

Or in the case of a CAT-astrophe.

I have 3 cats who are forever trying to steal my miniatures. Reggie will play with them if they happen to get left on/near the floor. Cookie carries them in her mouth to the top of the stairs, knocks them down the stairs, back up the stairs, etc. Mayhem is... well he lives up to his name! lol

Uncle Trav, really enjoying the step by steps.

HAha gotta love the cats. Thanks guys. Twenty seven tiny pieces of hand detailed bamboo. This is just on of the four sides if the hut and the short side at that! Still a long way to go on this one.

The rough floor boards the roof line, the bamboo, on and on the treats keep coming. These are images that just stay with a person throughout the day. A lot to think about. Impressed. Wendy

Finally getting around to attaching the roof after a bit of time away from mini construction. Still a bunch more to do on this one.
