In a game I ran this was the scene of an epic battle between the Venician secret service and an army of airshipborn ninja who were going to assasinate the Doge by setting fire to the tower using parabolic mirrors. He was saved.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

Love the forced perspective in that first model. Last year, I helped my daughter do a papercraft model of the Eiffel tower, and we did forced perspective on the mall in front of the tower, with the near trees and paths exaggerated to make it look more "real" if you got right down close to the display.
That's going to be a great souvenir for your ladies. (Girls? Womenfolk? They all sound sexist...how about "female loved ones?")

Understatement time -- Glenda and Kathy were underwhelmed with St. Marks and St. Peters. I think it's time to do something for me again, or something I wanted to do for someone else. Hitchhiker's Book for my IT guy, Samurai helmet for Mike before he moves, or that 1908 London Motor-cab. The Doctor Who Fobwatch by Hellsword for me.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

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?
