      Great News for miniature artists!!!! In support of IGMA and the world of fine miniatures,  Micro-Mark the small tool specialists, have offered IGMA a 10% discount on all their purchases.  Buyer gets 10% off all purchases and in support of the Guild Micro-Mark will donate 5% of your purchased price to IGMA Be sure to enter Promo code IGMASAVE16 www.micromark.com Can be used on sale merchandise, but cannot be combined with another offer.  For example if an item is in the close-out section on the Micromark website, the discount will apply. If they discount some items in an email (a special promotion) the 10% will not be able to be combined with that offer.  Time to go shopping!!!      

Dream Structure Build

At the dawn of 2018, my thoughts return to a dream structure build.  I bought a pre-built Lawbre shell that I can bash... or at least use as reference for my roof lines for custom built house.  Does anyone know someone who did a miniature 2x4 build?  I think the wire runs are the biggest advantage, as you can run wire as you would normally, but how do you engineer, so you can finish?  I was thinking of using crescent mat board for the walls.  I love the concept of having a modular house; for easier access for room finishing.

It is the roof lines that provide me with the largest portion of the puzzle, so I think I enrolled in the Marc Adams school of woodworking Sterotomy class to learn more about this topic.  If I include a round tower, I can mount the roof on a larger lathe, but is there any wow factor to a roof done on a lathe?  or should I build the roofs properly with rafters?

Your thoughts and comments are most appreciated!
