Project SG-69 -- started at last!

Having determined to go for the larger gate, I marked out the foamcore for cutting tonight.

It develops I was overly conservative in my original cutting layouts, so I was able to get 6 of the main segments out of a 40x60 sheet of foamcore, and the 9 outer trim segments took only about half of the 3/16" thick black sheet.

Which means I'll have 40x30 of 1/2" white and 3/16" black left for trim pieces as I go along. This is probably a good thing, since I'm making part of this up as I go along.

I'm leaving cutting until tomorrow night since I'm sleep-deprived right now and really don't want to screw this up.

I'll add photos when I get a chance.

Kevin

ETA: Crap!
Just went back to my drawings. Looks like I managed an in-between small size :-(

Good thing I didn't cut tonight, and good thing I'm painting the whole thing anyway.

    Ah, the best laid schemes... We dined betwixt earth and sky enfolded by clouds. No overlord's view informs the next sandbox city plan.

    Less rain this morning, so I pore over our maps plotting our sortie into the blustery day with grand engineering plans.

    Rain pelts my city and the towering spires melt into island mounds. Tomorrow I shall simply launch my fleet of motorboats! Tonka Marine Hauler
