No the fish bin went straight to my friend upon completion. But I intend to build another one for my warf on my Boston and Maine line at some point. The best part of that project was making the ice. as once the sea salt was crushed in the grinder and sprinkled in it did look for all purposes like ice. Yes I tend to get into detailing. something that has had me asked many times why are you trying to do so much on something that may not even be seen clearly? To which I always answer: Isn't that what modeling is? I realize at times to be in scale u have to reach certain limits, and some things are just too little to model or really to be seen in these scales. And yes I have left items out before. But trying to model at times can actually be a form of therapy. it helps keep you busy. As in my case I was disabled in an accident. So I find spending time trying to add little details to some models helps keep my mind off Not being able to do a lot of the things I would like to do. Plus the nice thing about trying to add as many details as you can gives one the feeling of accomplishment in what you just made. And I have always looked at modeling as trying to make an exact copy of an actual item as best you can. And what is a rabbit hutch without the rabbits? it's just an empty pen. But Thank you for the compliment Jose I appreciate it.
