Early this year a friend put me on to a model building job for the whakatane council,after loads of e mails trying to track down the project manager and then a couple of meetings and trips out too the island I was given the job and a deadline to have it completed and onsite.Its 2800mm wide,2000mm deep and 450mm high,so I had 6 weeks to get it done.They are have the grand opening of the new area when the model is located this thursday.

Thanks Steve,
I did not go over my budget and got it done on time.
It was a challenge that I took on and got it done,There was a couple of time I could have given them there money back and walked away.
At the end of the day I was happy they were happy I got paid,
You dont know what you can achieve intill you challenge yourself.
I have lots of friends that are full time artists and they are always drumming it into me not to under charge for my work.

That’s rude word good. You have all the colours and textures of the landscape nicely in scale.

Hi Glenn,

That is absolutely stunning! Your attention to the texture and colours just really makes it pop!

If i walked into that office, i know what i would see and be drawn to first :woohoo:

Need a fishing trawler or two bobbing around to give a sense of scale....

Lovely work Glenn. Hat's off to you, because 6 weeks to knock out an island of that size and quality is a job well done indeed.
