    Hello guys . I know i have been absent for many days but as you all know it was aTHENS Show running and as a member of the Organising Club i had to do some work besides participation

    I will do a full Show report with pictures and medals and everything .
    Here i just wanna present a project i started last December and finished 2 days before the Show ..that means 23 of May

    The Land of the gnomes as i imagine it . The pictures are not so good , cause it was the first time i was shooting such a huge pack . It rates 60 x60 x 70 cm 's and gave me a Gold Medal in Fantasy Category , and the highest score from the Judges .

    I wish you like it , and iwill be happy to answer any possible question's or explain anything

    Just a note on the scenery - base everything is made of red clay over a wooden armature andpainted to simulate wood. I wish i had a wood ready for this , i would have escaped 3 weeks carving and claying !!!

    Hi Costas

    So that's what you've been up to all this time!!!

    That is VERY special - your attention to detail on everything is first class. One problem - my wife saw it and she thinks I should be doing something like it :(

    Excellent!!

    Best regards

    Wonderful!
