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: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
