I love anything miniature, and if it is about making miniatures, even better! So naturally I’m drooling over this Modeler’s Briefcase intended for miniature painting.

It’s right out of the scene in Toy Story where the toy repairman sewed Woody’s arm back together. The wizened old man had a tool case that opened up to reveal an intricate workspace: toy parts, paints, cue tips and brushes stowed in drawers, a paint mixer, a miniature chair for his subject, and even a tiny stand for Woody’s hat. As a kid I was fascinated!

I also identified with that guy. Not because he so unfeelingly removed any traces that the toy had been loved, but because he had a fastidious, perhaps obsessive, attention to detail, and my favorite line in the whole movie: “You can’t rush Art”
