I was working away from home during the week whilst this project progressed, and I wanted to get this to a 'ready-to-paint' stage before going away again on the Sunday night.
Rather than lock myself away in the man-cave, and miss out on my family, I commandeered the living room on Saturday morning and set about moving things forward whilst the family caused even more chaos all around me.
|The texturing progressed.|
Cutting out squares of card for something small is one thing, anyone who has scratch built a slate roof knows that by the time you hit the second half the novelty diminishes, but this, as simple as it was in principle, was something else.
Perhaps I had over-estimated the time it was going to take... maybe... perhaps... erm... yeah... I did. A lot.
Minutes rolled into hours and daylight vanished. By the time everyone was tucked up into bed I put a little backgorund inspiration on.
Resident Evil flowed into Night of the Living Dead and as the credits rolled on Dawn of the Dead a little face appeared at the top of the stairs.
"Were they being chased by monsters Daddy?" Whoops, error.
My daughter was a awake and quite possibly scarred for life. It was around half three in the morning and I still had loads to do if I wanted to get a sealing coat of paint into the boards. I should be taking her up to bed again and settling her down.
"Can I help Daddy?"
I need all the help I can get, and my daughter; a hobbyist? Epic.
"Yes please." I confessed.
My other half woke up a few minutes later. For some inexplicable reason, none of us could sleep, so, perhaps in sympathy, an army of cardboard engineers marched onwards.
|Cardboard Engineer Reinforcements - 3.30 am. Thank you guys - I love you.|
|One of three 2' by 4' sections.|
