          I have been following Christopher's work for years also if I must say I have lost track of him de last time.
          His St. Pierre layout has been an important source of inspiration also for me.
          In the same line as Woodie, Kim, Henk (Punta Marina) and others, he is one of what I consider the most balanced modelling: not too much  of anything but a very strong harmony and a very serious sense of fun.
          Just delightful.

          Thank you for the link. It was new to me.

      Hi Daniel,

      The best known person modelling in 9mm scale is probably Christopher Payne, certainly his work, particularly St Pierre, is my own inspiration for considering modelling in a larger scale than 7mm.

      It's a commonly used scale in New Zealand, have a look at the following website http://www.nzfinesc ale.com/index2. htm

      I didn't know there was a 9mm yahoo group, what is the URL ?
