Hope all of you enjoy the new photos. You my see in all the new photos that I still have some small details to finish and glue them together by December. All the small chandeliers need to be install also.
I am adding the final touches to my grand staircase and to let everyone know that it will be on display at the Robb and Stucky Interiors store at the Millennia Mall in Orlando Florida on the following dates.
Friday the 12th to Sunday 14th of December 2008. If anyone is in Florida, come on in and take a look at my work. Times are Friday and Saturday from 10am to 6pm and on Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
Hope to see you.
Respect for you, about the original materials. That carved wood parts are very nice. I like these details. But the colouring surprise me. Were the furniture really blue? I never seen before this variant, olny burgundy or dark green.
I have confirmed that the chairs are indeed blue in color and not red or green. I was surprised as well when I found out. I have tried to be as accurate as possible and still my miniature is not perfect but comes very close to the real thing. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Frank...I got a birthday coming up this month if you have trouble finding a place for your model. Just sayin'. ;-)
In all serious though, I have never seen such a perfect model of the Grand Staircase. My amazement at your work just can not be put into words. Absolutely breathtaking. And your methods of photographing it really sell it as being much larger than the dimensions you described. Nice camera work also!
