Those are some impressive displays.

The thing that really strikes me, apart from the incredible detail on such small models, is the way the sea is modelled. I don't think I've ever seen anything that realistic. The man is clearly very talented.

This is awesome stuff.. I think in recent years the modeling community has come up with amazing ways to simulate seas with resins and such...

LOL.. I say recent years, yet I haven't touched a model in 6 years.. so I guess I should say in the last decade or so..

The kast 15 years or so have seen a huge renaissance in model making.  Photo etch, slide molding, 3d printing, paintsand pigments and research has gone a long way.  The afternarket stuff has exploded and smaller companies can bring niche subjects to market cheaply.
Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.
