Very short words: a, it, oh, is, as, to, up, etc.   lol

Tell her she's responsible for making a grown man cry - and not you, neither!   lol

A downsized variation on the Notre Dame Cathedral, sir.  A remarkable challenge and a useful model that immediately identifies the location - and fits into a large block of history, too.  And if 28 mm is too big for such a beast, try 15 mm (or even 1:120 scale which will work with 15 mm).  Just think of replicating all those flying buttresses.  Such a thing would impress us all to the nth degree raised to the nth power.

Do you realise how many cornflakes he’d have to eat to make that! :o

Seriously though, we really need to find something challenging for him! Something with compound curves and hundreds of detail...... ???

Being on LAF  is in the loop

So feel free to join the rambling musings of those who aren't allowed out on their own. ;D

Okay Gents time is as they "Uuup"

So you came up with.
Armoured Train,
Castle,
Some sort of buildings, be it industrial or decaying.
Oss n cart,
Retro chic 50's-60's buildings,
Gothic Church (Yes church, because negative waves are way more scary when you have to sleep next their source.)
Airship/ Balloon.
Golem,(sort of done its really nothing more than tubes and solid rolls of card and a few cuts with a sharp knife.)

So here's the game plan.
I'm going to make them all.
With the odd tweak here and there, to fit my actual needs. Otherwise I'm stuck with builds I have no use for,and no one's ever willing to pay money for if it from recycled card. New card not an issue . But recycled and they think its a con or it shouldn't cost as much as a' real model'.
 
Mark.
