    He uses celluclay, paints it with oils and then gloss coats it...

    That is amazing.  How big is that AAA dio?  Is that the largest of them all?  In any case, I'd have to say his work is really really impressive, especially how realistic all of his water is.
    I believe of the 4 it is the largest---it is 35th scale!  He is working on a 35th scale V-2 launching site dio right now...

    If you have not done so already, please convey to Mr. Pruneau my (our) admiration for his work.  It really is impressive.

    And encourage him to get a internet connection and a digital camera!!! Evil [}:)]

    These are incredible!

    Manny, is there a site where we can see more pics of these?

    Unfortunately, no. I scanned some pics he sent me...he isn't "wired" w/ all technology most of us have, like computers and digital cameras, which is strange as he is a brilliant guy. I told him he needed to get on the net!

  • Wow i like all of them he,s got some talent alright, fav is the one with the crashed plane    Awsome.
  • He really is an amazing modeller. What I like is that he gives equal weight to all the details. Its not just about a half-sunk boat, but also about the brickwork on the dock buildings, and the fabric awning and so on. Like everyone else I am amazed by his depiction of water. Thanks for sharing these.
