Picked this one up Sat. and have read quite a bit of it over the long weekend. I must say this is one of the best I have read in a long time.

The primary ingredient in all patterns is closed cell or high density foam and they are all terrestrials. The instructions are very clear and well illustrated with photos.

I love the "stories" he adds with almost every pattern.

Highly recommend to anyone who like trying new and differnet ideas.

I really enjoy using foam. It's easy and versitile. I had 5 foam ants and beetles that lasted all summer even though the 'gills were trying very hard to destroy them.
