As I mentioned elsewhere, I'm doing some dioramas. I remember seeing a hex-shaped landing grid at one time that was composed of three diamond-shaped pieces that connect at the points to form the larger grid. For the life of me, I cannot find it on my hard drive, nor can I find it by a search. Does anyone remember this?
If I remember correctly, I thought I saved it because it was what I considered 'genius' at the time. One page to save, but printed out three times gives the whole thing. I liked it.
But I cannot find it...
I was also thinking that I could take that base piece and convert it into a warehouse/hangar floor piece.
Assuming it isn't gone forever. Where is TommyGun? Giving him this idea, he would probably have something pretty cool in about 30 minutes.
If you can think of where this was, I would appreciate it. If it gives someone a good idea to run with, even better.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

Those are beautiful. Dice trays, right? Did you print them on photo paper? Nevermind, I should check out the link
EDIT: They are dice trays. Very nice. The textures are vibrant. Are they on photo paper?
I never did find the landing grid that I was looking for, but I have found something I can use as a pattern at mk.strats-welt.at/index.php?tgt=Terrain. The Torhaus blockierend has the shape I want. Two sections of the roof give me the diamond shape. Although I am one step below 'poor' at GIMP, I will try to cobble something together.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
