First: I second what Russ said.
Second: What came to my mind (knowing that it's too late but not able to stop myself from saying): The ACE sign may have made more sense at another position. Imagine the sign on top of the middle roof as a charakter's silhouette with a framing, but positioned inverted to add some more virtual spatiality kind of an imagined public street back of the building.

Marvellous modelling.

I'll make it. If I have to fly the five feet like a birdie.

I'll fly it. I'll make it.


It all turned out rather splendidly! Really like the idea of a folding layout to fit carry-on luggage restraints. Looking forward to seeing that one develop. Each model you make is an improvement on the previous.

I also had a white edge to my layout for a while but ended up painting it black so that the edge was disguised. Just a personal preference though.

hi ian.
the edge is picture mount board.i cuts really crisply with really sharp edges.
the ikea idear- is to have a fixed base which will be the size of the carry on luggage it will be 50mm heigh[2 inches].everything else will be attached to this base.hopefully there will be a micro working industral railway.i dont want to make it like pizza or the style of railway in a box  micro display-we will see.
kind regards kim
