About Bob Tavis (BobTavis)

I came to model making late in life as I spent most of my life as an artist, illustrator, photographer, videographer, producer, musician, composer, writer and not least of all, raising a family. I am fifty-seven years old. I started about six years renewing my childhood interest in miniatures a...


That is truly inspiring. It's not a model as much as it is a work of art. Thanks very much for sharing.

Hey Bob! You already know how I feel about this awesome diorama, but I'll say it again! Its super, great composition along with very high standard of every single element of the dio!

Dear Bob, This is the kind of work that inspires me and intimidates me and challenges me. Just what the doctor ordered. How long did it take you to do? Sealhead (Kansas Sunflower)

I started last August and finished last month. I worked on it about twenty to thirty hours a week. I am guessing it is about five hundred hours of work all together. I did other things during that period to prevent me from rushing this. I had made up my mind from the very beginning that it would take a while and that I would be as patient as possible. Usually I want instant gratification so I really had to discipline myself not to rush it. My attititude about modeling in general has changed as a result and I have acquired a lot of patience.

Howdy Bob, I think Sealhead hit the nail on the head, it inspires, intimidates, and challenge's other modelers to aspire to creating great work's such as that! It's a joy to the eye. :-) Tread.

Then that makes the effort even more worthwhile. I sincerely appreciate all of the adulatory comments. There is no higher praise than that received by fellow modelers because you all know first hand what it takes.
