Constructing Adelheim, Part VII--Back to work on the glacis

It's been a hectic week, with a conference I was responsible for planning at work, Norman's graduation, and a visit from my mother. I was doubly pleased to get home tonight, as tomorrow is one of my scheduled off days, so I've got four days at home to get a few things done.

I sanded the edges of the luaun glacis support pieces after supper, and then enlisted Norman (the Prince Palatine) to assist me in gluing the foam sections on.  With this completed, we can start gluing down the covering felt, a process which will probably take a couple of days, as I usually stretch the felt and glue it a section at a time.

With six weeks left to go until the convention, there is not a moment to lose...


  1. Looking good. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished article.

  2. Thanks! We are too, at this point. It's off to buy the base coat paint for the foam pieces today.

  3. Moving forward well-it will be excellent to see the finished results!
