    not to say you should do it, but you could always add a straight strip, with the angled top bend, custom fit, to the front of the curved one, and it would act as a facade, hiding the curve. Just a thought. On the other hand, the curve is so gentle, it almost seems intentional, it looks fine the way it is. :)

    sounds like a good idea Zathros. but i'll leave it the way it is. knowing what went wrong helps with doing the rest right.. i hope:). ok got more done. a lot of small cutting and scoring on this model for sure. house2 003.jpg finely figured out the bends on these..
    house2 006.jpg cut-fold-glue--and so on. 16 per side..aggggrrr

    I agree with your assessment, and to be honest, the curve has an appeal to it, almost like the original should have had it.. :)
