Everyone needs a hobby

 Here's one of mine. The beek is 1/2 inch tall. the finished model sets in a half pint canning jar.






I was born about 100 years too early, or to late.

Heyyyyyy, really cool, now you just need some really, really small cell bees to go along with that set up.

  In model railroads it's called N Scale. That's 1/64th of full sized. The tree and grass is scratch built, as is one hive. The beek in this one came from a model detail kit.
  It's fastened to the inner lid of a wide mouth jar and the jar and ring form a dome over the model. Can't take a picture of the finished item as the glass blocks the view.

Heh, reminded me of the movie Beetle Juice. Seriously nice exhibit. Bet the kids especially would love it if you were doing a presentation about beekeeping.
