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.

Parduz: Let me "shout" here that i'm not ignoring the minis database cataloguing job, but got a bit sidetracked by real life and the Legions of Steel 2ed beta testing. I also thought to reply to a couple of PMs but did'nt hit the "Send" button. Anyway, i'll do it!

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oh my good lord. Well, I was working on a brilliant year-in-review post outlining all the things I managed to pull off, and mistakenly clicked the "x" button on the browser window. Please take a moment to close your eyes and imagine an amazing post.
