Here is a collection of photos from the Military Miniature Society of Illinois' "Chicago Show", held the weekend before the last. As always, the best miniaturists from the world show up, displaying work of incredible quality:

Scott Primeau's "Babe Ruth" bust (Page 1) Greg DiFranco's "Madame Recamier" (Page 3)-a "flat"! Fletcher Clement's "Marrakesh" (Page 4) Bob Tavis' "Pollack" (Page 4)
There was also quite a collection of Bill Horan's work as well (though, for some reason a lot of "veteran" pieces - I am still awaiting the explanation...lol).
And, it should be pointed out - the majority of the pieces in the photo set, are originals, not commercial castings.
