Sweet! Very sweet! Now I am going to have to build that one to place my Croatale on when I get one with landing gear to display them both. I like the idea of the three layers of cardboard for extreme support. I might be able to improve the support structure a little, but I am going to have to go back and look at it when time allows.
There's no such thing as sanity, and that's the sanest fact.

Ralings have one more layer added and ramp is one on the walking area and 3 on walls. You can see platform thikness is like 0.8 mm, same are support walls and bottoms.I try and put a big book on it. Nothing happend I think i made it more for metal model than paper haha. But is good because after time it will be good as new. I plan on making some place to dispay my models i my room because for now they hide in wardrobe. Something like bookstand will by nice.
One advice from my is to glue reling before glueing bottom. And first glue support walls to platform with tabs and then add extra sheets of cardboard on it. That allow to better glue the tabs with no gaps.
Happy You like it:) It really look cool with Croatale on it. I think to make some stands like that for all good models. And Croatale is very nice design. Simple and cool looking. Now i need to think what make next. There is so many great models on Genet site is hard to decide. Some of them are to hard to make for my skills for now. But most are even simpler than Croatale.

Patience, Grasshopper. Skills develop over time and with practice. Not just practice, but practicing the correct procedures. Keep working your way up in complexity, and one day you may even do the dreaded ... Fei Qiu
Ask Chris about the Fei Qiu. A bit of a bear to build
Ah the Fei Qiu, I vaguely remember a pic of that glorious monster a few years back hahaha, I wish I could have taken a crack at it sometime now that my model building technique is better, I remember it had no instructions just pics lol. Wasn't there a Crotale style model also available like that?

Last year I built a large version of this same landing platform. The discussion is at the link below. The photos comparing the original and my version are almost all the way down to the bottom of the discussion page. I made some interior support walls for strength, and a photo of those are presented as well. These were for my grandson who is a Lego Star Wars fanatic.
Vermin King: I still don't think I have it, but been doing run around trying to get in to see someone, somewhere about getting tested. If not The Virus, I still need to figure out what this is and get it knocked out

Vermin King: I wish I hadn't been curious. Hadn't taken my temperature for a few days, and I'm running a slight fever again. I'm so ticked off. I guess tomorrow I will have to do the nurse hotline. Sun on the Beach...

Vermin King: But I had to drop off my electric bill before Monday (an excuse to get out), and saw I still had a full tank of gas. Filled up on 3/11 and after tonight have gone 54.7 miles ...

Vermin King: Since my Location is either Randolph, Sugar Creek, Four miles SW of Sugar Creek, or Raytown, I wonder if I'm being shown as ignoring the order. As with all stats, you have to take them with a grain of salt

Vermin King: I see that Stay-at-Home is only about 45% effective in the US. That is 45% of folks with cell phones are staying put. Big Brother is tracking cell phone GPS. And why not?

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.
