DKS Modeling Home

Although Iíve been through hell and backóa few times, nowóIíve been slowly
returning to modeling. Owing to any number of factors including depression,
disease, old age and available funds, my recent work can be characterized
as erratic, chaotic, fragmented, disorderly, unpredictableójust like my life.

For those few visitors who might like to see what Iíve done in the past in 
addition to what Iím doing now, Iíve begun dusting off some of my archives
as well as documenting recent activity. For newcomers, Iíd recommend
starting with the Newport & Rock Falls; from there, the pages more or less
follow the chronology of my layout-building to provide context. Or, you can
jump straight to my current work.

Other modeling artifacts

Somewhere in New Jersey is a diorama I built in 2012.

Incidentally, I would have restored some of the documentation on my
extensive work in T Scale (1:450), but owing to a catastrophic computer
failure, all of that information was lost. All that remains is an image of my
finger holding a model at Wikipedia.

BTW

Why the boring web pages? Iíve reached a point where I canít be bothered
with fancy page design. Itís a lot of extra work that rarely improves (and
sometimes detracts from) whatís really important: the information.
