Meh! (and miniatures)

This morning, within the space of 15 minutes, I dropped Miss Daisy off at the mechanics' to deal with a little matter of her deciding, on the trip back from Bega, that changing gears wasn't high on her list of priorities. Then I checked my Post Box and picked up the rejection letter for the latest job I applied for...

In the following issue of the magazine issue I spotted a letter to the editor about the model by Maryann Roy. And a little googling led me here:
I was about to say "pity it's not 1/12th scale" but miniatures are miniatures and her work is superb...
