Thanks so much everybody for the words of encouragement.  It means a lot.  There's heaps of potential in 144 and the kits that are coming out these days are just getting better and better.  I hope more people will be tempted to give the scale a try.  :)

Outstanding. I appreciate the use of the 1927 shilling, very cool idea.

 

You know, without the matchstick or shilling, I'd have believed you completely had you told me it was 1:48. And I'd still have thought it very good work. AND it's a scratchbuild!

I really like doing that.  It gives a nice bit of context and scale.  Its a slippery slope though, as you can suddenly find yourself with a quite a stash of coins after a while... 😬

That's real modelling, wow! I can't imagine ever being able to scratch-build something with such precision and accuracy ... incredible!
