Making Miniatures....returning to the world i grew up with

I`ve always liked making things from an early age, my mother was very creative and always encouraged me and my siblings to draw and paint and try different crafts out and also having a brilliant art & crafts teacher at school helped keep the creative juices flowing. Like all boys of the seventies I was very keen on the Airfix models and had a vast collection of tanks and trucks that I would spend hours making and painting to make as realistic as possible, pocket money well spent I always thought. That in turn developed into making scenery and buildings for the models which helped sharpen my skills in using all sorts of bits and bobs to help create miniature scenes with and it is something I still do today. My interest in Dolls Houses did`nt really start until about 3 years ago when I was asked to make a house for a friends daughter and everything snowballed from there. First I made one, then another which sold on Ebay, after a few more sales I then i got into trying to make more realistic dolls houses but that became to labour intensive and so eventually I decided to create room boxes as they were easier to ship and quicker to make. This in turn led to fireplaces as my own roomboxes always seened to have a big fireplace as its main feature so it dawned on me that maybe there was a opening in the dollshouse market for handmade fireplaces.
