    Hey guys, I know I haven't been around much, but I thought I would chime in with this - my latest creation. It is an HO scale baby grand piano made for Val's HO Scale Hotel project. It's made completely from cardstock, posterboard, and paper over the course of 3 nights.

    Very impressive model. Now I want one. (And more importantly, the ability to make one...)

    Arlaghan,
    Has she seen this? Man this is cool, she's gonna do some cart-wheels, (know I would, even if I am a fat guy!!) You're gonna be number 1 on her 'buy that dude a beer' list for sure! Great work man! Can't wait to see it installed.

    Thanks folks. Yep Val saw it. I posted it while on the chats.

    Dick, the keyboard, sheetmusic, and sound board was printed out with an inkjet. I was fortunate to find a graphic on the internet that I used to get the contour and the images from.
