WOW, that's impressive. It's going to be tough to soar with you eagles with builds like that.

I like that stucco on that building.

Over the years, I've thought a lot about how to construct Mansard roofs.  One thought that comes to mind from your roof, is to use the 3D Printer to construct subroof forms, and then bend cardboard or styrene glued to those forms.  In particular, getting a corner form with the correct curves at right angles would be a great help in getting a solid and smooth curved roof corner.

Thanks Bernd — that’s very flattering. I look forward to your builds in the near future :)

An excellent thought Dave. I may even try this soon.

Very nice Craig! I'm super interested in the 3d printed stuff and I love the way you incorporate it into all your builds. Very cool stuff.

Wow.  Here I am simply slapping kits together while you're knocking scratch builds outta the park faster than I can build a kit!  That's terrific!  ;D

Thank you, Bob! For me, the best way to learn is from my mistakes, so I try and get in as many projects as possible — all so I can make as many mistakes as possible!

I’m now working on Emporium Seafood, so the $$ signs will pump the brakes a little ;)

Really appreciate your kind words.
