  1. An added note, the lower pictured cliff can be stacked on te one in the upper picture. This could possibly be a third airbase.
  2. Well we were in too much of a hurry and we left out a complete level. If you notice on the map above a jagged line around the cut out sections, well, that is another level. Easy fix by making another copy, do the cut outs and just glue over top of everything.
  3. The first module of Black Cutlass' second group is nearing completion.
  4. The base is now operational. In the mean time Black Cutlass showed up and was working on his modules.
  5. Almost done. The base needs to be added, usually done first. Still another round of touch ups, fourth that is. No matter that it looks done, still spots show up when you turn your back on it. The curve is quite noticeable in this shot.
  6. Painting is under way. All parts will be painted, even sides not visible during gaming. The paint helps strengthen the whole structure forming a hard shell. The flash always shows up spots missed.
  7. Well, I think this will be high enough. The weight factor is getting up there. I need to glue down the last few levels and you can see the foam warps. I also noted the sheets are thicker on the lap joint edges, with a noticeable curve in one side. Last step is to paint it.
  8. Seven more levels done and fifteen to go to max limit.
  9. Level 77 for the spires, need a lot of practice making those, holding the right angle, while trying to rotate the piece on the hot wire. Level 57 for the main structure. This will be the heaviest piece yet, about equivalent to three sheets of 4x8 foam board. I am not sure if I will go as high as there is only 3" clearance instead of 4".
  10. Here are more levels added. This may be the highest point. I do have a top piece but it just clears the ceiling by 4". So do I put it on and hope I can move this tank of a module and not knock it off or just go with it as it is....................................... I'll go for it.
  11. A slight deviation to put the portal in the cliff face. Level 51 parts cut out. Tight landings and take offs.
  12. Okay, I am absolutely done for now, till everything dries.
  13. Currently the three rock formations are drying. Once the Tarmac (hex paper) is in place and any painting that should be done before the formations are glued down, now is the time I need to make sure everything is painted; hanger portal, rock areas not covered by the Tarmac, and the insides of the rock formations. This is the hex mat from Star Fleet Battles that I will have copied to cut it up for the Tarmac at the hanger entrance. Picked this up from Staples, it was done in an hour. Here I am checking placement for best movement pattern. Tarmac is cut out to cover all exposed areas not covered by the mountain formations. Now to the painting; the hanger bay a light mint green (like the inside our RADAR Vans of the 70s) and Mountain Midnight Blue, mainly for areas not covered by the Tarmac. Tarmac is now glued down but the rock formations are still drying so they will just set in place till dry and then painted, after which they will be glued down. Three views at level 46.
