In december I knew I was getting some money that was very welcome because of an upcoming move, but I decided to use some of it to order some miniatures. Because it has been and still is a very strange and difficult year (and if you would know what my life has looked like the past years, you would know that when I say difficult, that is quite the understatement). Where so much has happened, is still going on and hardly anything is the same and some things might never be again. But of course it also - like every situation does - brings new opportunities, chances and possibillities and I am very grateful for that. And good things are always there too and more will come, I just know it. But despite all good that can always be seen - no matter how difficult still - I really felt like treating myself to some beautiful and special miniatures I can use in my Oldtique Store. I felt I deserved that ;). From Ulus Miniatures no less and I wanted to share this with you. I received them today and I am SO thrilled about them: they are just as beautiful and perfect as I hoped (photo's online can be deceiving sometimes, but in this case were definately not).
The enormous detail José puts into them (and Luis, I don't know who does what, just that Ulus Miniatures is a joined venture), the quality of the finishing of the items, the realism, it is so great!
|this drill comes with a thingy that you use to tighten or untighten the drillbit with (not working obviously)|
|this beautiful kitchenscale has real domed glass and a real hand as well (not working) which makes it so real. Also the metal is nice and heavy, like it should with a scale like this and with the right amount of aging|
|it opens and looks like a real one inside. The material is so wonderful, heavy and with a beautiful slightly aged finish, I just love it!|
|the opener is unbelievably detailed for such a small object.. I cannot believe how well done this is, it is just perfect!|
|and not just one side that's just right, it's complete in every way..|
