What I did this week was complete another building from scratch. It's 25/30mm scale. As before, it's constructed mostly from 2mm card. This is mounting board which I find isn't the best because it delaminates. 'Grey board' is better. The base is MDF. Painted with Docrafts Artiste acrylics except for the turret thing which is Valejo verdigris. This was an afterthought but I like it even though it might be vulnerable to damage. I just wanted an excuse to use verdigris. This model was very much inspired by those of Charles Grant.

If you do, please share! I'd like to see someone else's take on it.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.

Looks terrific. Do you use another cutting tool besides the pictured scalpel-bladed cutter? I'm wondering how you cut the smaller windows so neatly since that blade is too big to fit in the openings.

Yes, almost all cutting was done with a straight blade.
