I spent a few hours in the workshop and got the rest of the foam cut to make the shape of the Starfort

You can get the details here link

With any luck I will be done before Autumn

That is looking good.

It's also HUGE! That will dominate a table.

Looks like Darth Vauban is building another giant weapon of mass destruction again!

Looking very good Sir! Just remember you will need ramps to bring guns up to those bastions, unless of course it is to be an infantry facility only…
How does one calculate the angles on these models? I'm afraid I slept through that class in school…

Brute Force, ignore the math, set your blade and start cutting foam (some assembly may be required later on)

I was expecting you would carve into but you are still adding parts up then? ( walls. ramps and so forth)

Yes I have added the parapets to the model now and I am working on finishing the outer walls link

I intend to have different interior facings, to include open and closed bombproofs as well as stairways and ramps. The Real Castillo de San Marcos had but one ramp that occupied the southeast corner of the fort, this will be my first item after I finish the walls.

@Anton
Thanks for sharing. I began working on this fort a couple of years ago. I like your use of pill bottles for the sentry towers, something that I had not come up with a solution for yet. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the encouragement. There are time when I wonder about my sanity and other times when the sheer size of the project is daunting but I just keep plugging along. I hope to present a game at Spartacon in Lansing this January.
