Don - looks interesting in B and W. I would run this version through a photo editor to sharpen it up, as I think this would improve the looks in B and W.

----------------------------

Ruben - a great model this and I am very tempted! Thank you very for posting it!

Black and White looks interesting. And the textures also add something.

In a way this model reminds me of the Silver Millennium castle of the Moon Kingdom from the Sailor Moon anime.

I have thought on reworking it in lighter colors to get a Sailor Moon-esque look.

Or probably design a proper Silver Millennium, since there is not a single paper model of it.

Here is my results for the Man In The Moon Palace.
As noted by others there were some fit problems and I probably used more time than needed trying to make everything line up and cover up, but all in all it was a fun build.

A beautiful build.

I guess that if we build it again, being aware of the fit issues, we could enjoy its simplicity even more

Good work on reinforcing the Moon!

If we extract only the black channel, the kit can be used to be recolored, or even printed like that to be used for children's activities

It would be interesting to see how kids recolor this model with their own hands.

Yes, it would be interesting to see how some children would color that.
Thank you for the line drawing version.

Thank you so much for presenting this model and all the work you did on the restoration. You did a great job displaying it for us and giving us a model that we can actually build. It will be the model I build for grandkids for sure.

My build. I opted out of adding the small crescent finials, because I'll probably end up mailing this to someone, and it's fragile enough as is.

I printed it on 11 x 17 cardstock at FedEx Office, so it has a nice slick, toy-like surface. I didn't bother to darken the scored edges, because it's cartoon-y enough that I don't think it needs that kind of fine craftsmanship.

I laminated the big banana shapes on to some black museum board for stability.

It's not really hung properly yet. I'm thinking about using some heavy wire to make the crescent extend around into a complete circle, and hanging it from that.

As others in the thread have noted, the fit of some pieces is pretty terrible, but the model is so charming, I don't think it matters if some of the pieces are a little cattywumpus.
