Graffam Sci-Fi #3
Anyone who has made any cardstock buildings will be familiar, I'm sure, with how tricky the smaller or thinner parts can be. The walls and ceilings here are a fiddle, with tabs coming in all directions for structure strength, but making their construct a bit of another octopus fingers exercise. Put all the slight imperfections together can leave a few gaps or squint edges (especially to the critical builders eye). Also I found that my print out had wall widths of around 6 or 7 mm, so my standard 5mm reinforcement doesn't happily glue to both surfaces.
