This pulled me out of from being a lurker. Very cool.

As to how to store this,I had a large roman styled pit fighting arena that I drilled a hole in one corner large enough to fit over a nail and I hung the thing from the wall like a piece of art. If you have a space away from tall heads you might consider that storing option.

EDIT: now that I think of it, the hole was hidden under the dead space of the structure so you couldn't see it.

Your "tacked together" piece looks TERRIFIC...& gives us some indication as to how UBERCOOL the Theater will look.
I'm SURE the extra balsa wood will not go to waste.

Firstly a big thank you for all the great compliments
Okay this ones a biggy
Finished all the outer panels they need a little triming and a little filler.
Then went on to make the first flight of stairs using a jig to hold whilst drying then fitting with landing.
Next the interior floors and stage area.

Top work Simon. It will be a real centre piece to fight over. Love the scaffolding on the outside - adds loads of character.

O well Very Happy on the bright side, you cant complain you have too little, and there is a margin for error

I am impressed. This is an ambitious project, and it is coming along nicely. I really like the stairs and scaffolding: those are some great touches.

I think this project could just absorb details and bits like a sponge. You can take this in so many different directions as the level of detail you want to have and play with on a regular basis. Wonderful work, mate. Keep ut up!

Hopefully it will retain its playability the balconies are only 10-15cm deep for the most part and having the large open space in the middle helps the most akward bit will be the entrance way which is double depth .
Planning on having 90 percent of the roof missing/destroyed to further increase playability .

Magnificent! Shocked The idea in which you have based this upon is very unique and it should be absolutely exquisite once it is finished! I can't wait to see the structure in all of its former glory! bounce

I hope you don't mind me piling more encouragement upon your shoulders? Razz
YOU CAN DO IT!

Also, upon its finishing, it would be a major bonus if we could have the opportunity to see it feature in a Battle Report! Very Happy

Thanks for sharing! thumbsup
