    The next structure for my corner module is the hospital. No prototype for this one as I had to make one to fit the space.
    As usual I start with a corrugated cardboard frame

    Painting the walls came next. I coat them with acrylic paint right out of the bottle and have no warping problems like some of you have experienced.

    Yes! Robin, I have been waiting for you to start your next project! Nice! Is there an emergency entrance with the covered roof?

    About the warping, if you find painting a wall or whatever causes your material to warp, painting the other side will help eliminate this.

    Cool beans and I see that careful cutting of the cardboard yeilded a prepainted Medivac pad on the roof:D ;)

    Even if you are retired, now I know you don't sleep. Do you work days on the mushroom and nights on the corner module?

    Checking this thread is at the top of my to-do list.
