    Truly awesome work. As a kid (14-20) I had a huge HO scale railroad in my basement with tons of buildings made from off the shelf kits. My dream was always to be able to build from scratch at the level of detail Paul does. 25 years later, that dream has yet to be fulfilled.

    Great work! I anxiously await the next installment.

        Very good work! I was wondering what kind of wood and paint he used to create the buildings? Are they durable enough for outside use?

                The work may be in miniature, but certainly not the talent. Fabulous stuff!

                  I was impressed. By both the article and Swab's artwork. Nice collaboration gentlemen.

                    I was truly amazed when the building arrived on my doorstep. I fancy myself a model builder--at least I did, until I saw Swab's work.

                    The building probably wouldn't hold up without some weatherproofing in an outdoor environment. It's quite fragile. As to the paint Swab used, we'll have to let him answer that question.

                    I can't wait to see what he comes up with next!

                        My appreciation for the Swab just tripled!

                        Nice work man!

                            Fabulous, thanks for sharing! If the National Park Service is ever able to put their plans for a museum of the Paramount Ranch movie ranch in motion, I hope to pursuade them to include a miniature model recreation of the Western town set as it looked years ago in the 1960's, and, perhaps, as it looked for Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. If so, I'll know who is the right person for it! (I work with the NPS as a volunteer, as a Paramount Ranch historian.)

                              Unfortunately not. Wood is a 'live' medium, and subject to warping with increased humidity. It is also vulnerable to splitting and cracking when exposed to heat/cold continuously. Some of the construction is done with balsa wood--extremely fragile.
