Okay, so I’ve been working on this helipad for the past two or three weeks. I’m the kind of guy who likes to get most of the casting for a project out of the way, rather than try to alternate between casting and building. As a result, I haven’t been posting a lot of pics, because all you’d see is bricks.
I have built the platform part of the helipad out of Starship Deck tiles. I wanted to do a border using the first mold I ever bought, the Station Builder mold.
Now, I don’t have my digital camera right now, but I want you to imagine three items:
- two 1.5″ bricks from the SB mold
- three 1″ floor tiles, glued together
- three inches marked on a metal ruler
Now imagine that none of them are the same. And not a little off, but a lot off. (1) is too long, (2) is too short. And It’s such a mess that really don’t know what I’m going to do with it but damnit right now I’m just mad. I think I’m going to drop the whole sci-fi thing for a while and just stick to ruined fieldstone, which is a lot more forgiving.
As a final note: that Station Builder mold has never worked right. I know Bruce does top quality stuff, but for whatever reason that mold is just a total *itch to work with.
