Brian Penny has been modeling constantly since the early 90's, usually building military models. Since about 1997 he has turned to the "diorama" as an art form and finds it to be "most rewarding". It is the best reflection of his motivation to create a 3D photograph of sorts. Something where people can view an object and have a sense of "being there". Brian has worked in model shops and has had the opportunity to also do it for the cinema, but finds it most rewarding when he does it as a hobby, because the "finished product", is a reflexion of his standards of quality, which he considers quite high. Professionally, he thinks that only museums could appreciate his work to the fullest. He has won numerous awards, mostly in Canada, and a lot of them are in the "Best Of" catagory. With Brian, modeling is a "passion". The Bonnie and Clyde project goes way back! Bonnie and Clyde had always fascinated him. A few years back, he bought the now, "out of production" AMT kit of the 1934 Ford "Tudor" model as it was the only 1934 Ford sedan kit around. Brian then converted it into a "Fordor". Quite a job, but worth the effort! Last year he decided to take a break from the usual and "get to it". It was a slow process, not having scale drawings to work with, or much reference material. Discovering the "Hideout" website was helpful to Brian, as was hearing about Mario Desrosiers and also the "deathcar" project undertaken by Bonnie and Clyde expert Sandy Jones.
