Great coach Cor! Hope you dont'd mind a few questions.

First, have you done the plank pattern also with the curio or was that in the sheets already? If you have done it with the curio, was that just one scribe?

And what thickness is the styrene you use?

Thanks, Alwin

hi Alwin
the scribing is done with the curio, one rounddid it with the etching tooli used 0,5mm thick styrene
as you can see i used 3 layers for the wallsi am thinking to use evergreen plates to do the outer walls next timeat the moment this is only testing and looking for faults in the design
