Wow!  :o

Robert, your an incredible Master Monster Model Maker, and/or a total masochist. I'm guessing a little of both.  ;)

A true monster orgy if there ever was one. I'm exhausted just viewing all your preliminary work.

Please keep us updated on your progress!

    Thanks for all the positive reinforcement everyone. If you want to store the finished product at your house for free you will be required to dust it, keep cats away, and talk to all those characters on a daily basis so they won't be homesick or lonely. Maybe I need to scartchbuild Hazel the maid to watch over them all???

     Baseball sounds like it would have been more fun anyway. What kid would have had the patience for a project like that? Cool idea though. Maybe........35 years later, you could restart it???

When I wrote this, it actually did start to occur to me that I should.....but right now, I try to spend as much time as I can with my two year old, and am exhausted at night afterwards. No snivlers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the affirmation. I'm pretty sure that I still have the originals boxed away somewhere. Need to dig them out!

Keep up the good work

i got my ideas from this site and from looking at some sites that market bases (MiM, for instance), and from the models i have on the shelf + old ideas running around... when i get enough breathing room from house projects...

i was thinking, with some input from the kid, of doing a multilevel scenario diorama/display.

the top level would be 2 parts: on the left, a cemetery and ruins. on the right, a street and building of some sort. in the center area might be items that dont fit anywhere else mentioned herein.

the middle level would also be in two parts. on the left... a mausoleum and abbey style display. on the right... a jail and a laboratory. middle tier optional...

the lowest level would have, on the left, a secret crypt and/or sewer... and on the right... a dungeon.

i had reserved a wall space some 7' high, 4' wide, 18" deep for this effort.

 That sounds interesting, and would be fun to watch it develop.

Robert,

I just finished watching your videos you posted.  Your vision, creativity and ambition is truly "monstrous" and inspirational.  You may call it the "Diorama of Miracles" but it is truly the Mt. Everest of monster scenes. It's like building the ultimate rail road train layout only your using monster kits.  Who knew you could use a super glue bottle for a piece of Frankenstein's lab!?!  That was very cool!  You have inspired me as I renew my interest in model building to think about what I am doing and have patience.  As a re-newb to kit building, I am amazed at what you did with balsa wood, foam and everyday items.  Thank you for sharing your "mad" skills and experiences.  Keep up the good work!

         Hey Mark,


 Wow. Thanks for your post. Now that you mention it I have thought about it a little like a model railroad done monster style. You hit the nail on the head too. In diorama building patience definitely comes in very handy. Good luck to the new project you decide on.

Just wanted to say that this is amazing!  Maybe someday I'll get around to creating something this beautiful, but that is still a long way off.  Keep up this great work!  Can't wait to see it come to life!
