Well I did see a 3 legged bear. If he can sort it out I'm sure Herr Doktor can.

Well, HOORAY! The etchings have arrived:



And some of them fitted:



View through the door:



Added an 8" howitzer from a 1/35 scale kit I picked up cheap in a charity shop:



And decided to add a two-part opening hatch in the roof, partly for restocking the weapons, but mainly so there's a way to see all the interior detail:



More soon!

Sir -

If I were to meet you in a pub and you were to say to me "why don't you come up and see my etchings?"

I would have to say yes.

He would never do that, he is a model citizen.

Which is exactly what this needs, a scale figure of Herr Doktor doffing his hat.

Well, next time you're in the Motherland...

A bit more fettling, and possibly some handles...

Should be a triple door hatch to maintain the trilateral symmetry of the piece.

I did actually try to do a three part hatch: just couldn't get it to work properly, so settled on a two part one.

But I might have another go at a three part one...

Oh yeah,you can't back out now.
And,come on,seriously,like you can't do it Roll Eyes.  Wink

All of this makes me sick. I mean that in the best way. If I only had time I could try to see if I could do something half as good or a quarter as good. Yes,almost at a loss for words.

I say, Joe it's jolly frightening out here.
Nonsense dear boy, you should be more like me.

Ecstatic !

That's exactly how I imagined it should be!

Now seriously, wouldn't you have inwardly winced every time you opened the two door hatch? You know you know you can't just settle for an easier less aesthetic option.

The triple hinge placement looks much better even in the closed position. It has a nice Coggy feel to it which is practical

As stated a miniature of yourself on top of the staircase is a must.Perhaps holding a model of this which opens up....

Quite correct Mr harrow, it would have annoyed me every time I saw it!

As it stands tonight, at rest with all hatches open and the weapons lowered:



And on the march, weapons raised:



Not sure what to do with the extending arm- wrecking ball, claw, morningstar?

(though probably not a sink plunger...)
