Happy wife, happy life

I know this is probably not the forum for DIY arts and crafts, but none the less I would like to share this model I built for my wifeโ€™s birthday.
I wanted to build her something, but as she has no interest in tanks or aircraft, I had to come up with something else that she might like.
I started out with a polystyrene heart and glued a zipper to it before covering it with Apoxie Sculpt as Iโ€™m trying to learn more about sculpting and scratch building.
Added more details with Apoxie Sculpt before painting and weathering.
Iโ€™m happy with the result and I think she liked it.

LOL, I’m sorry the way iModeler cropped the front page image, it might be misleading.

2 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. ๐Ÿ™‚ โ€ฆ Greetings โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ™‚ :
    I like it Geir, nice use of the imagination and creativity in you.
    The colors chosen are very pleasing.
    Thanks for sharing this project.

  2. Left Anterior Descending Artery is a little off…..(I’m kidding!)

    That’s super cool!

  3. Well…’s different – I’ll give ya that! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. A remarkable piece of workmanship, ingenious and creative

  5. Thatโ€™s pretty damn cool. I put my wife on the nose of my Mustang…so we know where our bread is buttered.

  6. Something a little out of the ordinary – good to see!

  7. Pretty cool! I’m sure she loved it.

  8. Very good idea, I always tell the other half that one day, I will build a tank and spray it in pink a gift. Most of the time and to my great surprise, this act of appreciation from a modeler is not having the same response as the average bouquet of flowers, even though these can be pink too… Any views/recommendations?

  9. Does that allow for more stash build-up??!!!

  10. Great piece of work. And idea!
