Snail Shell house

Long Long ago, giant snails roamed the world. Being slow  they were generally not considered a threat and therefore tolerated. Sometimes a snail of great Age (and size) would pass away. moving slowly  to the great cabbage patch in the sky and some enterprising individual would find the remaining Shell and move in.
A bit of work was necessary to carefully remove the central spiral "walls" but after this was done a cosy waterproof abode could be constructed.

1/87 bod from Prieser, the cat from an Outcast-Figures set (available at the Croeburn 1813 shop)

A couple more pics in different Lighting and Backgrounds.

  16. If you'd really like to paint up a red head, that would be grand. Scale doesn't matter. I'm doing 28mm and have no idea what Marzio is doing.
