I swear I just noticed a couple more things of yours on sale that weren't on sale earlier this month. I think I bought about a dozen of your sets this month for just a dollar each. I feel like I'm taking advantage of you or something. Thank you. A lot.
Also, thanks for making things simple to cut and build. I got an autocutter as a gift, but I really like being able to take a bunch of printouts with me somewhere and cut them out with a scissors. I can't do that with a lot of stuff because its too complicated for scissors. Either need a hobby knife or autocutter.
I don't use robocutters, so I need to be able to build everything using just scissors and an X-Acto. I've kind of embraced the fact that my models are easy to build, although I know there are folks who say my models look too "flat" and would prefer more gribbly bits. I consider it a feature, not a bug.
Couldn't agree more Mister G. I like the fact that I can print, cut and assemble most of your models on my knee while I'm watching the TV in an evening after a hard day, and I know they're going to look great on the table. Win-Win. There are one or two with fiddly bits- such as staircases, but even then, it's a matter of patience, not complexity.
I have no need for extra gribbly bits on your models (though an extension pack with awnings, bay windows, porches, shop signs and other street dressing would be good). I do crave some with a less rectangular footprint so I can make more crooked streets, but at a push I can just fiddle with the geometry in the photoshop files. And that's the beauty of DGM.
Building a New Elysium. 29 buildings and counting...
I will totally second the idea of having an expansion pack of awnings and bay windows etc! I've been kitbashing them for my own models (using both DGM and Fat Dragon parts), but a set of additional street-side bits would be awesome.
creyates: Happy new year everyone! Wishing you all a better 2023!

okumarts: I took a year 'off' of some sites and social media but also focused on other things. It really didn't seem to make a difference so my new years resolution is to re-engage and enjoy it more.

Vermin King: There evidently was a feasibility study about a decade ago about a water pipeline from the Great Lakes to the Southwest states. I believe that water would have been even more expensive than bottled water

Vermin King: At 7AM we were at +3, got up to 17. Far better than the last two days

squirmydad: Yesterday it was -6, today it's t-shirt weather at +3

Vermin King: Well, squirmydad, is it colder in KC than where you are? -5F here. We have already hit our high for the day at midnight

Vermin King: The smaller images on PostImage are in fact thumbnails. Click on the thumbnail and it opens a new tab with the full image. Right click on the full image and you can get the Copy Image Link on the drop down. Use that to post a full image

Dave: Hey there! I've used both. Posting off-site images results in broken images (I'm guessing because they aren't from a secure site, which is fine). Using the PostImage function, it reduces images to thumbnail size (regardless of what I ask for).

Vermin King: @dave, Are you uploading images with PostImage or linking to images elsewhere on the internet?
Dec 19, 2022 4:26:41 GMT -9
Dave: I'm trying to post images, but it seems I can only post broken images or teeny tiny images. Help?

Vermin King: gothique, did you look through what I posted on Facebook and in the message? Anyone else find anything to help?

Vermin King: Well, as one who has been contributing to the silence, I hope to do better this next year

Vermin King: Oo, gothique, that is a tall ask, which I wish wasn't. Finding almost anything beyond Taj Mahal is darn near impossible

gothique: Can anyone suggest any buildings for 18th/19th Century India? 28mm scale if possible

wyvern: I suspect you're not alone Hackbarth; the CWF here's been quieter than previously too in the last couple of years. Typing as one of those who's been among the quietest...
