Nothing else to do but get this desk cleared up and get started on my third and final 'quickie build'



I've been doodling a design and have a business decided upon, so it's time to get started and then 'move on'.

Another good one to watch get built. You finish an entire diorama before I get a shake-the-box box open! And it doesn't looked rushed when you're done.

Thanks Bill, I def try not to rush. Thanks.
Tight corners, straight windows and no glue spots are important things to me.
These builds can be quick for me, but I def don't want them to be sloppy.

Walls measured and cut out, time for a test fit and then on to making all the individual clapboards.

Thanks Jerry,

Nope, no more dioramas for these quick and easy structures, they'll just go sit on the shelf with all the others for now.
I did the diorama base for yours because to me it was a special build, and it needed it.

I had decided I needed three simple builds to get me back into modeling with nothing to think about and just get me moving again.
After this one I'm going to start working through the unfinished dio's that I have and get back to that side of things.
With that said, I'll probably throw in a few more random quick builds if I feel like I just need to do something basic and less involved.

Stay tuned in to this station 'cos it seems to be working out so far, at least for me. Thanks always for your continued support.

Karl.

George, the subwalls are cut out from foamcore board.
This sheet is thinner than usual at only 1/8" but its still working OK.

Thanks Michael, me too
However, because this one is 'freehand' and evolving as I go with no plans, I may have to redo something if it doesn't 'panout', hopefully not 'cos that was a lot of clapboards, lol.





Hopefully I'll build the windows tomorrow, I'm just not in the mood tonight and I cant proceed any further without them.

I used to use a ruler and blade jerry, but after two builds it got tiresome so I got a small paper guillotine
That makes life much easier.

I had one of those at work. And they never used it. When I left I should have borrowed it long term!!
