Sorry I've been MIA, but my laptop has been in the shop for almost a week. This means props for the alley are on hold. Bought some do a on Monday, and officially started my Zelda inspiredcastle ruins. This will be a courtyard, and hallway. Fresh cuts

I feel you pain mate, carving foam board is a long and tedious process!  It looks great, can't wait to see it finished.

Thanks everyone!

With each build, I try and challenge myself to try new techniques. This build will incorporate at least 4 new things for me. The first being the amount of carving. The second? Foliage. What's a courtyard (even an abandoned one) without plants? Still needs some "fluffing", but there are 2 more coming. 100% scratch built.

Thanks gents! Another quick night at the workbench. Made a half wall (first broken wall). This will be on magnets so you can remove it for photo shoots.

Trying my hand at stained glass. Notice the "subtle" Tri-Force?? :)

Needs some cleaning up (back of glass), and a small frame behind to block the light around it (same with door). All still a big WIP.
