Yeah that's as far as I have made it. Maybe now's a good time with all this extra hobby time.

*Stamp of approval*

Glorious new build. How does she scale next to a mini? Looks a good bit bigger than most of your tanks, but smaller than the drop ships.

And now we go to the 2nd version.
I am going to present it bit by bit so that it is easy to follow, if one is inclined to do a similar buid.
Very straight forward build.

Are you just etching your fold lines with a ballpoint pen?

Mostly yes. A 0.5 or 0.3 one.

I personally like the rough edge , like those found on welded WW2 tanks.

I sometimes use a blade others a steel point.

More pics added.

Btw.
Wheels are made of  2 milk carton caps + wine bottle cork spacer + 1" nail + 2 part epoxy glue.
They've just changed the caps on our milk cartons locally & I liked the shape immediately.

So I was looking at this double decker type vehicle & it didn't look quite right so I decide to cut it in half & ended up with 2 cabins.

more pics at link so that you can see the build bit by bit . still a wip.

Two for the price of one!!

Those both look great. The top picture strikes me like a land version of a houseboat. Like the railings would just have some little planters and lawn furniture on the decks.

The bottom picture looks more like a mobile command vehicle of some sort. An administrative office on wheels.

Thanks Cook.
I'll be using the 2nd one, as a matter of fact.
Houseboat? Now that's a good idea , might just build a riverboat.
Don't have water borne vehicles as yet. ;)

Me either, though I do have a couple river/creek tiles created. In hindsight I probably should have built the rivers similarly to my roads so that they sit flush on the tile and not as a carved area of the cork. Still, I could get some canoe type boats in there.

Reminds me I need to build some bridges too.
