Hello Lars and Lauren

Wow, I would have been very pleased to make such a great model at 9 years old. It's not just the model that is good - you two worked as a team which is even better.

Congratulations on a beautiful result from a lovely project. What's next?

With best wishes,

Steve (with 2 daughters age 7 and 11).

Well done Lauren! Wonderfully executed and presented, Lars you're going to have competition soon! Such a simple yet evocative setting inspires me to try something similar.

Here's what Lauren's work inspires me to try

Hi guys,
This is my daughters latest work. A small vignette she calls cloud breaker. She used the airbrush for the first time, this was very exciting for her. On my advise she didnt paint the canopy.
Have fun.









Greetings Lars and Lauren
