#001 06 Dr. Bank's Office - Inside the Office

I've had a bad night with my little one and finally have her in bed.  Jeez....what a night.

I'm too tired to model, so let's do some planning.  All of the photos I collected are now in a binder and one thing I need to do is to come up with a list of details to put inside the Doctor's office.  My plan is to scratchbuild most of them.  We'll just look at each picture and write down what we see.

Wow, that is a lot of detail for a tiny little office.  Yet, most of the pictures I have show the office as a tiny little room, just like I'm building.  Going to have a tough time coming up with all of these.

The roll top desk will be a focal point, as will the exam table and curtain.  I expect to make the lamps really work using fiber optics.  Many of the details might have to be attached to the wall or floor before assembly.


Finding a Doctor might be harder than I thought, at least the white coated kind.  Naturally I checked out Arttista at first.  I also sent a note to my friend Alan Pollock at Fun & Games (The People People) to see if he has them.  We'll see what they both come back with.  Probably post it on the On30 Conspiracy Yahoo Group as well.

Blue Mountain contacted me off line, but they don't have a doctor.  In fact, nobody seems to have a doctor!  What's up with that?  Ok, time to get out the carving tools and make a greenie.  I hate carving figures, but this one is too key to the model.  I need the practice anyway.
