First posting and first toy with hard wood. Typically use pine it’s cheap and when you make a mistake it’s not that big a deal. Not to mention hard wood is not ready available in my area. Got in a rush to complete so it’s not that great, was a fun build.

That looks like a very detailed miniature. It would be nice to see a few close up photos. It must have taken a lot of patience.

...First posting and first toy with hard wood….

A belated welcome and hope more to come.

... Typically use pine it s cheap and when you make a mistake it s not that big a deal…

Downside is that when it’s out of pine and a good build, it’s seems a “waste”. Having said that, pine doesn’t look that bad.

... hard wood is not ready available in my area…

- SouthavenToyMaker

When you consider the hours you spend on a model, the extra effort to find suitable hardwood is worth it and cost justifiable.
