Now..Have you ever thought about "sculpting" desktop aircraft..Your eye for detail and scale would be something to see.
John thank you for your comment about this. That trade is called "modelmaking" it's not sculpture which is my trade.
It can be so confusing, example: a man carves an Eagle ripping a fish out of the water in wood and paints it and it is perfect. But it is not art and these people know that and why? It's like a fortunate photograph, it records a moment in time but it is not sculpture. These carvings record a moment in time. With no more interpretation than that these are called carvings not sculptures. They are ranked along with nature photography and the people who do this know that. Their work is amazing to me.
Thank you John,
