Teakell’s Table; tiny armor…

Joe is passionate about his work; his pride in the tiny builds related in detailed descriptions of his techniques, the object’s history or social meaning, as well as the extra features that he included into the build (whether it be propellers that turn, turrets that swivel, or guns that track).

The effort and movement in his bombers was rivaled by the detail and functional potential of his tanks. Joe shared how he had designed into a small tank buld movement of a rotating turret (see pic 1).

Joe demonstrates in his tiny tanks, not only detailed movements that other builders often do not attempt, but he went farther by telling a story, with his tiny tanks, through stamp-sized dioramas. One diorama depicts a checkpoint near where two tanks start to face off (see pic 2). In another, two tanks pace at close range amongst some antiquated ruins (see pic 3). From another angle, the diorama seems to change the story, as the perspective changes, intimating an urgency not conveyed from the other angle, possibly intimating a surprise encounter (see pic 4).
