OMG. I must have 1000 photos of Dave 's models. I think I'll contribute just a few as we go along.
First, I must say why I love these models: The have an elegant simplicity that makes them perfect for modding, while having a no-compromise quality of premium textures. This is why SO MANY of my fold-flat/interior modifications are of Dave Graffam models.
So, I'll start with one of my most recent builds/mods - I take a 7-piece model and trick it out to be a showpiece using only DGM textures:
Finally I made a 3rd version of the walls (shown in most of the photos), with the panels cut out, and wall size sheets of acetate glued between the interior and anterior walls. This made the sides very strong and resistant to warping.
Ah, thanks for the return welcome VK. Nice to be missed. I have missed this place too. I don't want to derail this wonderful thread, so I will just say current circumstances can best be described as turbulent and uncertain and leave it at that. I do intend to make a more concerted return once I have regained stability.
I need to reclaim the town from my former home, and give it the love it's been bereft of in the last year. I have at least a dozen of Dave's models still to assemble, plus a few kitbashes, and I am eager to expand its scope and interactivity.

Vermin King: I'll want to look again tomorrow, but I think I have the temple ready to print

squirmydad: Are you musing or is this open to a vote? I vote Egyptian temple.
Dec 5, 2018 19:14:53 GMT -9
Vermin King: Either that or an Egyptian Temple

Vermin King: Tried to do some design work last night and it didn't go anywhere. So I went through the hard drive. I think my next project will be cleaning up and scaling a Honda Quad model that they released ages ago

Vermin King: Well, not up-chucking, but remaining upright and walking straight lines wouldn't really happen for about 8 hours

squirmydad: I always got seasick the very first day of every season, then never again no matter how bad the ocean got. I didn't get sick returning to dry land after two months of chasing fish, but I did walk like a drunk for two days until my land legs came back.

Vermin King: That's about like me on the ocean in small boats. I never get seasick until I am back on dry land

shep: And don't get too used to the aftershocks or you won't be able to sleep, if the ground does not rattle...

squirmydad: Two cats, one dog, and they've all been very high-strung for the last three days. I don't know if they can sense the quakes before me, but I think they are just as tired of the constant aftershocks as I am.

Vermin King: could just be the small number of videos I've seen with dogs and cats in them
Dec 2, 2018 16:56:34 GMT -9
Vermin King: Do you have pets? I've always heard how animals seem to freak out just prior to earthquakes, but every video I've seen with animals, the animals look at their owners like 'what the heck is your problem?'. Not freaking out at all.

squirmydad: I've lost track of the hundreds of aftershocks that have rippled through.
Dec 2, 2018 15:04:43 GMT -9
squirmydad: There's a cocktail recipe that a FB friend posted; Pour all ingredients into glass, wait, please enjoy your drink after the aftershock has thoroughly mixed the ingredients.

shep: Hey, squirmydad, always remember that booze is THE #1 survival gear...

uptrainfan89: I see WWG website is down yet again...

squirmydad: I'm supposed to boil water before drinking, heat, roof and walls are all good. One of the surviving liquour stores is having a 7% off sale in honor of the quake, so I have drinking options.
