My Tiny Obsession

Builder of custom scale model ships and trains

What's your obsession?

Obsessions. We've all got one, and mine is scale models. People have always been fascinated by miniature replicas of real life objects; archaeologists have found model ships in ancient tombs that date to 3000 BC!

My own association with scale models is a little more recent. I've been building them for most of my life, beginning around age 10. The first one was a Japanese Zero in 1/72 scale. Over thirty years later, I'm still at it. Primarily I build model ships and trains. I use a variety of techniques including scratch building, kit-bashing, and 3D printing to produce models that are detailed, accurate reproductions. 

HMCS Restigouche in 1/350 Scale. This Cold War era destroyer was the lead ship of her class and served Canada from 1958 until 1994. This model was built for a client in British Columbia who served on the ship in the 1990's and reflects her appearance after the "Gulf War" refit. 

A Working Hobby

My Tiny Obsession is a "working hobby" that I do in my spare time. I've built numerous models for private individuals, corporate clients and museums. If you need a unique, customized model I may be able to help. I'd be happy to discuss your project and provide you a quote with no obligation. You can find more details on commissioning a model on my "About" page. If you want to ask a question about models in general, I'm happy to chat!  Please feel free to contact me at .
