I just built this kit and it looks fairly sharp, but I have to say I am a little disappointed. I am used to getting a whole lot more in your kits. This building will make good filler in my cities, but the basic brick-like shape and standard placement of doors and windows with no pipes or bellows included means that I'll have to print pages from other models if I want to spice this one up. Luckily, I caught this one on sale. I like these roof braces you're including in your newer kits. Is there any chance you might go back and make a few for some of your older kits? It would certainly speed construction and improve the strength of the models. I definitely liked Steampunk Building No. 1 better than this model, but this is still a good model. It is just not as good as you normally produce. I own over fifty of your kits currently and plan on buying more.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.

Dave, you have set your own bar to a height that isn't reached by every single one of your models.
@blackcat13, when most of Dave's collection is on sale, it's hard to appreciate that some models were priced lower for less detail. On the other hand, this does have multiple skins, which adds to the value. I hope Dave does this more for enjoyment than the cash, because he invests a lot of time developing the textures, the layered pdf's, and doing the production behind-the-scenes stuff. I feel guilty stocking up when they go on sale, sometimes, but on the other hand, many of the kits wouldn't be in my collection if they weren't on sale. Are there specific models you want to see this roof-brace system?
And we always like to see photos...
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

marcpasquin: After Goscinny died, people thought it would be the end of Asterix as he was the writing part of the team but Uderzo managed to keep it going and eventually pass on the torch to new teams that still produce albums to this day.

marcpasquin: Asterix was such a big part of my childhood. Not only did I read all the albums but every years the cartoon movies were part of "Ciné-Cadeau", a holiday time programming block on Télé-Québec that showed animated movies for kids.

lightning: I cannot count how often I read Asterix and Obelix as a kid. Loved how it always ended at a big town dinner around a huge bonfire and the troubadour was gagged somewhere so he couldn't sing. Good times!

Parduz: I still love that comics. Some of them (around the middle age of Asterix production) have some of the best story/dialogues/jokes ever.

squirmydad: God I LOVED those books as a child. Sorry to see him pass.

wyvern: RIP Albert Uderzo, co-creator with René Goscinny of the Asterix comic books. [And no, he died from a heart attack.]

Vermin King: Trump is an S-hole, but Clinton should be in prison. I don't like Biden, but at least it's a step up from 2016

Vermin King: Well, my efforts to reboot 2020 haven't worked, so I probably won't try the others. BTW, I have always said I am an equal opportunity politician basher. Trump is undoubtedly an ass, but I still have to look at him being the lesser of two evils.

Parduz: well, then may i ask if we go pre 1994 so we could get rid of Bungasconi...

ignatious: perhaps a system restore on 2020 might work, and if we go pre 2016 maybe we could get rid of the trumpvirus.

Vermin King: I tried, but it hasn't worked so far. Maybe I will try again
Mar 22, 2020 4:46:23 GMT -9
Parduz: pls reboot the 2020, then.
Mar 22, 2020 1:07:14 GMT -9
Vermin King: Rebooting the whole system fixed it

marcpasquin: @vermin King to be fair, different hairstyle, costume type and about 15 years in between the 2 roles.
