It looks as though we may be getting nearer to that wished-for kit of Colditz castle, which is what first attracted me to this site. A lovely model, Mike

Mike,

A really crisp build. You talked about wall bracing; you are REALLY good at that. All those long runs of wall and no sag, bulge or cave. WOW!

John

John,

Thanks for the compliment.

There's no magic with the walls! I've been collecting courier "envelopes" for years ( I was thinking of asking DHL for sponsorship!). The card is the right thickness, so I cut out pieces just a bit smaller than the walls and use "Photo Mount" spray on the card. It's a chemical glue so doesn't affect the kit - unlike water based glues that can warp the paper.

Cheers
Mike
