For a fountain in the middle of Coatbridge you need to add a couple of models on the base to make it look realistic....teenagers with a bottle of Buckfast!

Only kidding! Models looking superb Colin! I see the pizza bases have paid off again.

Looks fantastic, though you really shouldn't have any creativeness left after that amazing Zeppelin build. Can't wait to see it finished though.  :D

So that's where you got the foam from...

Very useful stuff.
Cheap (as long as you like pizza :D)
Embosses well for the brick work
Has a nice texture.
Cuts very easily
and even glues using superglue :o

That's odd, I thought all that expanded stuff deteriorated with superglue! I don't think I've ever seen a pizza with a base like that before! You lucky devils...

Pizza foam superglues!    :o

What sort of pizza?  Any particular brand?

Great stuff! There's still quite a number of those around in the UK, from what I've seen... although the "best", if you like, is the Queen Victoria Memorial here in Hull, which sits on top of an underground public lavatory. Trust the British to combine pomp and practicality. ;)

Brillant! Just remember to coat in pva or polyfilla before spray painting. I wouldn't want to see that cracking model melt into a foamy mess...although some of your competitors might ;)!!

Wow... excellent build.

It's becoming obvious that this contest is going to produce some really nice stuff!
