Right so I had a little experiment with some coving just to see how using a biro would feel. I'm not to displeased with the results. I wanna post a pic but how?

Copy the image's URL (right click the photo & chose copy URL). Then click the insert image icon (second left of the YouTube). Place your cursor in the URL window, & click Ctrl V. That should put the image up for you.   What a Face

Don't worry once you get the hang of it it's easy. It took me years to get up my first photos...I used to mail the minis & stuff to Guys on the Forum in a figures for photos exchange. Younger Folk have the I.T. Genes necessary to understand these things.   Shocked

I personally recommend using imgur: http://imgur.com/

You just click the "Upload" button and select the images you want from your phone. Let me know if you have any questions!

That's come out really well!

The idea of using coving for a curved wall is really clever. I will be stealing it at some point.

Of first try with stripped foam board...I might embellish some parts to raise them further http://imgur.com/ueNAwUZ

This shows the relief a little better.

I'm still feeling my way but enjoying the process.

The new pieces look TERRIFIC! GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

Just in case you're in the States, you can get sheets of foam from Scenic Express here:

They are made by Woodland Scenics so they might be available on the other side of the Atlantic also.   What a Face

The other aspect http://imgur.com/Z50UMNr



It's taking some time due to children and work but I'm happy plodding.
Going to to build a timber support frame and then the upper storey.
Thanks for looking Smile
