I incline toward the introspective and I have an excellent memory for many things. Combined, these two elements often produce unfortunate results. I consider at excruciating length what could have gone better had I done this rather than that, why I failed to perceive then what is so blindingly obvious now, and so forth. In terms of this blog, I have spent quite a while wondering what to do to interest people in reading it. However, I had an unrelated eureka moment the other day, and am now minded to kick out all that I had thought up. Instead, I shall be popping up photographs as and when I do things, so long as I have the time. Quite a lot is under way.
I am making a modular castle wall at the minute. I have a clear picture of most of the construction in my head. The body of the wall (on which models will stand) is 4" tall, made of thick polystyrene foam. A facing element (5.5" tall) will be glued to the outside, made of foamcard, the paper front removed, and the foam inscribed with blocks in courses. The rear of the wall will be of black foam, scribed again to produce courses of stones. Details of the battlements are still uncertain in my mind. I want them a bit thicker than they are at present, but I am unsure how much thicker. Flagstones of dark foam will sit on the battlements' floor, if you take my meaning. Some walls will have flights of steps so as to allow models access to the walls.
Here is what I am on about. I dropped the connector for my digital camera into my orange juice, so while that dries, have some pictures taken on my telephone.
