I take lunch at my desk. Lately, I've been detailing Hot Wheels and Matchboxes with markers only. I think a combination of paint and marker would be better, but it's markers only at work. Here are a couple of marker only cars.

On another note, that looks like a nice diorama in the first picture. Would you happen to have some details on it?

Yes, it's a very simple paper diorama that I found on line. HW Custom allows people to download it. He's a Brazilian hobbyist.

Here is a link to his tutorial on Papermau. I hope links are allowed.

I backed it with cardboard and held up the porch roof with craft sticks. Very simple and very nice. He also has a blog on blogspot.

In case I didn't mention it, I find doing some marker detailing relaxing on my lunch time at work.

Here is this weeks lunch bunch.

I think a couple of wheel black outs were in order here.

Lunch was relaxing. Most were simple additions.

I liked this better with blacked out wheels.

I thought this came out well for markers only.
