My secret new project revealed! Big scale, big ambitions

I've been busy since I became a full-time modeller a few weeks back, and I can finally reveal my plans to you now that I have at least one completed project to show you. I've finished my first new scratch build, and it's big in a number of ways: big scale (1/20) and big plans ahead.

The new build is a miniature urban artwork of a building in my local area, the Yarraville Racing Pigeon Homing Club. I've spent three weeks scratch building this, and the finished result is about 40cm wide.

My plan is to try to complete a number of similar large scale miniatures of buildings and locations that I love in Melbourne, the city I live in. After a few months, I'm hoping to hold an art exhibition and showcase my work in person.

It's still early days, but it's very exciting to have embarked on this crazy plan. I'm loving the building process - it's great to feel a real sense of my modelling mojo set to full steam ahead!

I've also started a new Instagram page to highlight my artworks - you can see them @davidhouriganartist

Of course, Dave's Model Workshop will continue as it always has - I'm not going anywhere. I'll still continue to produce content around scale model kits and dioramas. This second outlet is more about artworks for sale rather than commercially available kits for the modelling hobby.

It's all happening!
