Even with the benefit of the Artistic Director's patiently drawn plans it has caused me to indulge in an extensive session of head-scratching.
It took me the whole of one evening this week to cut out the first of the blank end pieces.
The difficulty I had was in transposing the measurements from the design to the styrene sheet.
Somehow the angles didn't turn out right when I drew them onto the plastic. The pitch of the roof was not equal and the step in the lower of the two pieces shown here wasn't right either.
I double checked - it all matched up on the plan, - so why couldn't I copy it correctly?
In the end I resorted to tracing over the drawing and cutting out a paper template to use on the styrene, because I don't want to destroy the drawings.
This time I got the result I wanted, but I fear its only the start of my struggle with this building.
