Having seen Mikelands Celtic huts and been shamed into activity (does that man ever sleep?) ...I spent a busy night rummaging through the airing cupboard for suitable towels... The Blue Pig band now have a sacred dwelling for their druid in the woods. I just need to send a raiding party to ... BURN IT TO THE GROUND!!!!
That is ace, Carvel - it's nicer than our gaff, think I need you to come and work on it! The artwork is great, must be a high-ranker. How did you go on "plastering" the walls? The towel on the roof is great, and that's a great effect above the door. Must get some of that Tamiya red, though. @mikeland: Know how he feels (nearly)!
@Grant...simple cone made then a bit of extra card stuck on at the edgeto provide a hump in the smooth surface of the cone...took a bit of cutting to get it right. The toweling was a simple circle with wedge cut out and it covered all perfectly. The beam is a kebab squewer with notches cut out of its top side so it could be 'persuaded' into a curve. Hope that helps. Many thanks all for the positive comments ...this forum has certainly lifted my game. Cheers! The plan is for a super big round house next but I need to find a cardboard tub big enough to form the base.
