Thanks Robb. I have been thinking about a small diorama but haven't got beyond the planning stages yet.

Wow, Trav, your latest work is awesome! I'd love to have this hut at a 1:1 scale.

Come away with me to an island. An island which rises from an azure sea like a faceted emerald haloed by clouds and ringed with a pearl necklace of ancient reefs. A place where time is measured by the rhythmic beat of the waves caressing the sandy shore and the seasons marked by the shifting trade winds. A place nearly lost to the memory of men but for a mention in a musty logbook or notation on a faded nautical chart. Your cares and troubles float away on the warm tropical breeze and your soul is renewed like a new plumeria blooming in the hidden valleys of this paradise. Evening arrives in the company of a gentle equatorial rain. The rain plays a symphony of music on the thatched roof of your new island home accompanied by the deep rumble of thunder in the far off distance and punctuated by the staccato notes of lightening dancing in the sky. You rest contented.
Hut #4 is finally done after many many hours. About 3" wide and 8 1/2" tall and loaded up with lots of hand done detailing. Thanks for taking a look.

Trav, another beautiful hut! I've got to get past the planning stage & onto actually building one, you're leaving me in the dust.

Trav,

Another gem, nice work. Saw this photo online and was reminded of your work.



Seems as though you are not the first to make the miniature tiki hut.

Thanks for all the comments guys. DC, that's a great photo and I like the hut in it as well. Being off of work has given me way way to much time and this little hut burned up a bunch of it. I wanted to try out adding some new materials to the build and think it came out good. Thanks again.

You've gotta start keeping some of these for yourself, Trav. I really like the diorama idea.

Awesome as usual, my brother from the same mother, and father for that matter. Not sure why you got the art talent and I got the talent to do everyone elses banking and throw amazing birthday parties, but hey whatever. Since I'm your BIG sister, I'm asking that you build a miniature Mai Kai with lift off lid, detailed interior, lighted sign, working gas torches, rain window, and miniature fire dancers enjoying the efforts of a miniature band, don't forget the sound. Yeah that's the thing about us big sisters, we are demanding. Love all your work as always. Hate to see you having so much time on your hands, but glad to see you enjoying that which you are so good at.

Thanks again everyone. Sissy, if I could build a miniature like that I would have to find a way to shrink myself down to size and live in it. I have had a request to build one of the famous Tiki temples and I'm trying to use some varying materials in these builds to work my way up to the challenge. I learn a little more with each new miniature.

She doesn't ask for much!
