Charmed by the tinyness yet awesome story potential of vignettes i see made by modellers around me i am going to challenge myself into making myself one of these jar lid wonders. Especially the work of my fellow modeller Jon is a big inspiration and darnit, i want one too! Find his work on his own facebook page and blog here:
