    Thought you might like to see just how tall my 0n30 trees are, these trees are over 2' tall. (Take ages to make, and there are over 100 of them)

    Shamus,

    Excellent "live" picture of your layout. The closeups are incredible enough. But seeing this shot of your layout in "scale" with you graphically depicts how incredible your modeling truly is. Congratulations in attaining the pinnacle of modeling. You set the bar high, but you also inspire the rest of us mere mortals to reach higher. Bravo!

    In awe,
    James

    Hello Jon-monon,
    Conspiracy guy tells me that he was just an overpaid hired model brought in for the pics.

    The real Shamus doesn't show up in photographs and is rarely seen and is always wearing his long flowing wizard robes and pointed hat, the other theory is that the real Shamus is actually a borg with all kinds of implants that allow him to perform the awesome modelling we've seen.

    Of course this is nonsense the real Shamus is Dr Who's nemesis The Master and is just using his shrinking ray gun to collect what he needs. I'm sure I saw Tegan's auntie in one of those pics
