This model represents a dwelling place depicted in the lovely Studio Ghibli anime film "Howl's Moving Castle" (2004). I started building this model in September 2006 when a friend gave me as birthday gift the 26 printed pages of the free Epson file that was once available at Epson's site. This file is no loger available from Epson, but it still can be found in several other places. I worked in it only in my free times, and when I felt I could do some advance. There were times when I left months without touching it. I finished it in September 2009 (exactly three years after I started). But in total, acording to my notebook, it took me 43 hours. This are some pictures of an early stage of the project (2007). Those were taken with a crappy webcam connected to the PC.
