WELCOME to My Miniature Realities created by Jim Januzik
This is the place I come to escape from all the garbage that happens in the real world. It's a place of magic and mystery. It's my mini reality. The magic comes in all forms and is quite creative. The mystery is how I ever managed to start this insanity. I really have to blame one man - Bruce Hirst - the maker of the "Castle Molds" system of building - for sending me off the deep edge .Without him I probably never would have become obsessed over the idea of building with blocks ( my wife refers to them as "man Legos"). As a modeler with over 50 yrs. experience I fell in love with the idea of being able to finally build some of the ideas that had been floating around in my head for years, and to do it in an extremely realistic manner. I am not a war gamer moving vast armies around a table top nor do I crawl through dungeons fighting monsters D&D style, so therefore my builds cannot be called" terrain" by those types of people because that is not their purpose. I build dioramas and populate them so that they are as "correct" as possible. Many of them are semi-scale replicas of museum quality. The picture at the top of the page is my current project, which will probably be at least a couple of years in the making. Pictures will be posted at regular intervals to keep everyone informed of its progress. I will also be posting links to some of my favorite sites for inspiration and helpful tips as well as pictures of some of my smaller projects. I hope you enjoy my Insanity!
