Welcome to LJ’s! I must say, I stopped and stared at your carving for the Fallen Ones. Poignant work indeed.
I for one cannot wait to see what else you have up your sleeve. Keep up the good work, BTKS

Great job. I wouldn’t mind building one of these myself.

You sir, have way too much time on your hands (pun intended), but you really know how to handle it
constructively. If you next venture into Clayton Boyer’s Masochist Corner, we will know that your addiction
has reached an incurable position, and that you may as well relax and enjoy it. Thank you for sharing.

Very cool! I’ve got mine started. Now you’re eligible for the more advanced designs like the celestial mechanical calendar. I really need to get back on it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Gotta love Clayton’s designs. I have Simplicity as well as Swoopy and Attempt on the work bench now. Once you build one you want to build them all. Great work on your Simplicity. I especially like the weight shells you made up. Looks great!!!
