About a third of the way through the cut-and-fold lines now. I've printed out what I've done so far and plan to start assembling it today. What I have created are the main walls, interior reinforcers, and the weird long dormer. Still needs a roof, the foyer, chimneys, roof dormers, stairs, and the balcony (might try a big 3" x 2" deck if the proportions look all right).
Created the chimney, foyer and roof dormer pieces. Still need a foyer chimney, main roof, stairs and balcony/deck. Looks like the overall page count and build time/complexity will be similar to the Inventor's House -- a weekend project.

I really like the direction you are going with these projects. Unusual buildings that bring character to the table.
In my old model railroading days, the buildings I added to the layout had character. I didn't have a huge set-up, but everyone who saw it loved it. As you look around there was so much to see.
These new buildings really do that. Not to say that your older stuff doesn't have character, but I can think of a few that are more like the canvas of a painting, whereas others are the subjects of the painting.
I thought I was going to take a break from this model to work on other stuff, but I came right back to it. I've added three roof textures, and have begun adding the lower wall textures. There's a lot to do, but progress is being made.
Textures are finished and I'm sending this one out to my volunteers for final quality testing and assembled color models. I'll also try to convince NoRemorse to set up the GSDs.
While all that's going on, I can create the animated GIF showing the textures cycling through, and write up the product description. I can get that done in the next few hours, leaving me several days to work on other projects until the Townhouse photos and GSDs start coming back.
I'll probably work on the Archer bomber for Solid State War some more, and maybe get back to the 28mm-30mm Gallows set.
The easiest way would be 10-15% on each release but have them sent directly, guaranteed sales, but no monthly sub. fee. 3 Month minimum sub, automatically deducted from Paypal/ Credit card. Renew every three months, with automatic renewal.

Vermin King: I wouldn't hold my breath. He used to be very active on a French forum, so I asked him if he was going to be back there. no response yet

Vermin King: I sent Mauther an email. My guess is that it will be inaccessible while he is migrating things over to Blogger

wyvern: Today though, the Papermau blog is no longer accessible unless you have an invitation (and of course you can't get one unless you visit the blog, Catch 22). Anyone got any better news about it?

wyvern: I know Papermau's blog has been having problems because of virus infections lately - it's fired-up my antivirus system every time I've visited there for some weeks, though he did write and say the problem was resolved a while back (it wasn't).

Vermin King: I suppose it could have been worse. She could boost someone up in a positive uplifting supportive manner...

Vermin King: Okay ... double negatives are bad, but how about triple saying the same thing. I just heard someone on TV saying, 'I found we really boosted each other up in an uplifting supportive manner'. And that was probably meaningful to her. duh

Vermin King: Back in my younger days, I tried to get 'Trick or Drink' running. We would go door to door in costume with our Halloween-themed rocks glasses in hand.

shep: On the other hand, Halloween is not that big for kids, here in Germany, anyways. It's more an excuse for teens and young adults to dress up and have a party... and for the latter ones to get drunk beyond speaking their native tongue...

shep: "A ninja, a mage, a knight, and a fish enter a tavern..." Wait this is no joke??!? Great costumes! The kids in my neighborhood were, as always, either too shy or too lazy to climb up into the third floor (40 steps, man, 40 steps!)...
