    gland to glance

    Little problem where the steps meet. You could fix that by slipping in repair steps over the existing one. Relocate the hand rail so it is parallel to the top deck, and terminates square. Make the repair staircase piece to whatever shape is necessary to finish off the stair case. Your eye will glance over it and it any problems will not be noticeable. Keep that handrail straight though, that's crucial. :)

    There is another set of stairs and rails in that area so it does not pay to glue it until later.The black and white strips in the rails are giving me eye strain so I am going to take my time in doing them.

    It's not only your models threads that make good reading, it is your responses, and the great positive way you allow people to exchange idea with you. Truly, you are one of my favorite people. :)

    Oh yeah, I know all about that Eye Strain trip, I made the first paper model design I ran across online out of white styrene, talk about goin' snowblind. sign1

    But it was worth it, that is what got me started making card model kits.
