    Jim, David, Bob,

    Thank you - yes, my parents enjoy it and I had a great time working on it!

    One thing I learned on this project, is that Plaid's Mod Podge Dimensional Magic does a great job of transforming flat prints into credible blister packs. Print the blister pack on sturdy paper (or glue it to thin card) and cut out, put a thin coat of Dimensional Magic all over, let it dry and them build up 3D items with more Dimensional Magic.

    For several years my parents ran a small wholesale business in an extension to their home, supplying quilt shops with imported tools and books. Some years before they retired, they asked me if I'd like to build them a roombox they could have as a memento.



    It's an indoor/outdoor scene that sits in a clear plastic box, so I got away with showing just part of the rooms and very little of their stock.







    Oops - the shelf in the counter is empty, gotta check if I forgot to fill it or if I did that after taking the photo.

    Dear Bob,

    It's very considerate of you to ask, but no apology is needed! While I prefer to be called Anna-Carin, I'm quite used to being called Anna at English-language forums, and don't mind at all. (I wouldn't want my family to call me Anna, though.)


    Tyson,

    Thank you!


    Jim,

    Thanks - I'm glad you're going for the gentler rides. Perhaps you've built an amusement park railway too?

    Anna-Carin,

    I want to apologize to you, I have been calling you Anna. My wife's name is Anna May and she

    prefers to be called that way. She does not like it when she is called just Anna.

    Do you have a preference?

    Bob

    Some of us have projects that have lasted more than a decade, so "slow" isn't surprising...

    Bob and Carl,

    Thanks, I will! I've returned to modelling after a several year break and am starting out by completing half-finished projects, so I might post some more old projects in this thread to begin with.

    And be warned that I work very slowly! [:-ashamed]

    Anna, when you come back, and I hope that is soon, try the scratchbuilding area of the forum and post

    your project as you build it, we would all like to see how you did it.

    Bob
