Hello from Colorado

Hello everybody.  I am a model builder and tool collector and specialize in 1/4 scale instruments but have worked in smaller and larger scale models of many sorts.  I've hovered about some and have decided to join in on the fun.  Below is a model that I completed recently.  Rafael

Welcome to the forum Rafael. I look forward to seeing a lot more of your work. No matter what the scale.

Hello and welcome….

 

If you like little tools I am sure you know of the work of my friend Paul Hamler, he used to do tools before switching to miniature guns.

Also when it comes to tools, I am kind of addicted to them. I just copied a topic from another forum where years ago I shared some of my tool collection.

Hi Wm.  I am aware of Paul Hamler's work, and I am also impressed with the work that you have done.  Whereas Paul's tools are primarily 1/3 scale and yours 1/12, I have developed an affinity for 1/4 scale but do not claim to exhibit the skill that either of you demonstrate.  I am, however, thoroughly enjoying the art of creating and collecting miniature tools and instruments.  Rafael
