  4. How to Build Aircraft Dioramas

    This diorama is 95% wood built mostly with coffee stir sticks and tongue depressors readily available anywhere.Now on permanent display at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa Canada.Appraised value by Shep Paine twenty-five thousand U.S. dollars.I am very proud of this and am not bragging here but stating a "Mission Accomplished" fact.I first picked up Shep's book back in the early 70's and promised myself that one day I would this too.Over the years I often leafed through it but I was too busy woodcarving at the time. At age 60 in the year 2000 I finally got the chance to dedicate myself to dioramas.One thing led to another and I needed an appraiser for my work for the museum.I figured ah what the hell I might as well go to the top and ask Shep all he can do is say no. Well, he didn't but what really surprised me is that he appraised my work at the same level as what he was getting for his famous Box Dioramas.Just before he retired he had asked that others take up the from where he had left. off.I am very proud that I took up this challenge.I am so happy and especially at an art level that he appreciated my work.The last evaluation that he did for me was only a few days before his death.Thanks to Shep my mission was accomplished.
