Once again another outstanding diorama in such a short time. Great looking scene, and I echo what everyone before me has stated!

Gregg,
Outstanding modeling and story telling.

I see what you mean about being able to take a large model and with a little creative kitbashing be able to make it fit almost any space.
I also see that you were able to change this group of structures to a different industry than the manufacturer chose when he designed the kit.

Very creative and also well done.

As for the story, I hear that SNL is looking for new political material so if you were to make a video along with your story line you never know you might just see this diorama on TV.

I love the way you play the scene with the words that tell the story we live today in America. Get model building and love you creative use of the model like the I Rack and bailing out of the boat FM before she ends up like WaMu.

Wonderful job - I am very impressed by the speed of your modeling given the topical nature. Really superb work. All you need to add is a few lawyers in the form of well fed sharks circling the Fannie Mae and Wamu, as they're the only ones who do well in these times!

Very creative, Gregg! And a great piece of political satire. Thanks for not making it too political, though.

Thanks Peter. Yes, these last couple weeks have been a pretty tough ride for everyone. Jim and I each have several projects going at the same time, the net result being that together we seem to get many things accomplished. This build started many months ago. It was going to be a fish oil business or a rubber salvage business (pulling tires by conveyor out of a pit). This election season made that decision an easy one.

Thanks Larry. The story part was easy. Every day would be another shocker to model. I was thinking about having the road go off the cliff with a street sign saying "Wall Street". Ah, we could go on and on with this one.

Thanks. All I had to do was pick up the morning paper or turn on the TV and an abundance of material was right there to use.

Hi Larry. Thanks. I figured we could all use a chuckle after what has happened these past couple weeks.

What did you use for your water.?

Great, fantastic job,,,Rich B.

Thanks Rich. The water is EnviroTex. I was going to add waves and ripples, but decided I like the reflections the water is giving on this unusualy calm morning. I may rough it up later.

Not a lot to add to all the comments and compliments that have already been written. Just wanted to say once again how much I appreciate your modelling, all the details you put in your scenes, and the fun I had reading your story. Even if some of the names escaped to me, the general idea was perfectly understandable and pleasant. Now it would be even better if it could simply be a story...
