A world exclusivity on Armorama :

My dad's fence!

EDIT1 :
Don't know what happened to the links, second time it happens in my posts. all I'm doing is copying the content of this new field in the gallery... OK; let)s try the old way :
EDIT2 : Ok; looks like this new field is not really working, and that I should build my tags the old way... OK; can this be fixed??? (Oh my god, I start to sound like my customers at work!!!)




Handcrafted with piano strings and soldering.

It will be run over by the Dragon Wagon taking a turn round the building :-) :-) :-) #:-)

That is VERY nicely done.How long did it take to build the fence?Does the owner of the piano mind that a couple of notes are missing :-) ?Good luck with the rest of the dio build.Cheers,Shay

Thanks guys! I'm sure my dad will appreciate!
I don't know how long it took, but knowing him... probably too many hours, and too many packets of cigarettes! My dad is very famous for being extremely slow, because he cares about every single details. That's a very good quality in modeling!
I will ask him, and I will try to get him to sign on the site to be able to tell you about it in more details!

Awesome work! I think it worked out very well! It is much better and has much more depth than the "simple" "one-side" PE ones! Congratulations!
Cheers and happy modelling!

I'm always amazed at the craftsmanship that modelers possess. I feel so blessed to have access to as many talented people as I have access to here on the internet.
