Teakell’s Table continued…

Joe’s very generous with his time and very proud of his work. He had a hard time deciding his favorite model; and the reason is clear. There were not only a varied type of builds to choose from, but the detail and skill level across each demanded different types of effort.

He was pretty pleased with his work on a tiny B-17, WWII US bomber that he’d completed. The small, olive camo-painted craft sat on a tiny base with fuel tanks and support vehicles around it, creating a diorama in the round (see pic 1). A detailed little jeep sat to one side of the tiny build (see pic 2). A pallet of bombs sat ready for micro ground crew to load (see pic 3). Two pin-head sized fuel barrels rested on the other side of the fuselage (see pic 4). The final product was a striking as it was authentic.

Remember, this tiny set of builds created a diorama; very unusual for micro-building.
