I've designed and built several scale model stadiums of my own design over the last few years. I craft these "Dream stadiums" mostly out of wood and do everything by hand with small tools. All of these models are built to a scale of 1:600.

My current project is an Art Deco 32,000-seater baseball stadium which I hope to complete by this summer.
