WIP Wednesday

Does 2 weeks in a row make it regular?

The main structure is complete with steampunk pipes etc fitted. The inside is just a standard texture option set to "mirrored" in the printer settings. Floor level is at ground level, hence the steps down. The walls have a layer of mounting board in between them. It feels quite sturdy.

I've cut out the bottom half of the windows on the side door for shooting out of, and the door has been opened up, with the hinged side only cut through the first 2 layers, leaving the inner card surface to hinge. Inside I've only fitted one piece of equipment, but another will probably follow.

Now onto sorting out the roof.

    1. It's certainly coming along quite nicely, ta.

  2. Brilliant stuff. How do you join the walls with the added foamcore? Paper tabs that are then covered by the interior skin?

  3. I built the walls from outside to inside. So the outer walls were built as per the usual kit, then with the card (not foam core this time) glued into place then the inside walls (with the tabs cut of) glued in. 3M Spray glue was used to stop the soggy\warped wall syndrome.

    I should really have put in the floor texture sheet before the card for a neater finish, but it didn't occur to me until later!
