The work continues, and new supplies continue to arrive. Behold, the series of tubes:


This is the raw material for the corner columns – over 500 feet of it. It will be cut into the (approximately) 3,492 pieces needed for all the buildings (!)

Also arrived is a big pile of cardboard, for sending the rewards on their way:


And most exciting, here’s a look at my shiny new pressure pot for casting:


Mark I, and Mark II on the right.

And here’s a couple shots of what I’ve been working on most recently, including one of the first smokestack casts and a pile of new master molds.



Lastly, I’d like to keep you updated on parts of the project that aren’t proceeding quite as planned. Unfortunately, one of the 3D prints for the Tall High Gothic building that I received isn’t up to standards – there’s a small chip or misprinted area that I can’t really fix. I’ve requested a reprinted part, so that should be straightened out soon. Don’t worry – this shouldn’t impact the timeframe for delivery. I’ve still got lots of work to do in the meantime, so that particular pattern has just been bumped back a little in the casting schedule. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

Thanks to all of you, and I’d love to hear any questions or comments you might have.
