In the Soup with lentils!

Set walls, Set walls, and more set walls!!

I have been working hard trying to get all the set walls built altered  and finished, I previously mentioned about using lentils for a riveted effect on the internal spacecraft walls.......well  I have done 1 and a bit panels (which took forever) and have these made up to a grey primed finish...see picture below.

I'm very pleased with how the rivets are looking but there are still about 6 more panels to do!! but still unsure of the finish for these panels.
Also have decided on a Julian Clarkes armature for the last puppet which I recieved the other day, more about that soon.

Doors come in all shapes and sizes!

I have been working on some of the internal doors for the sets.

Picture (1) back and front of door from humble kitchen to future space world.

Picture (2) renovation of the Escape pod door......the wife bought a cherry pie from the local Supermarket and the plastic packaging was the perfect size to go on the centre of the door, it had some embossed writing on a few panels so I cut some rectangular bits of hardboard to cover them up.
I then finished the curround super gluing more split lentils for rivets.

Staircase video tutorial

This tutorial took me longer to edit than I had expected....condencing about 1 1/2 hr footage down to about 16 mins.
Didn't manage to get it done before my Easter break away but here it is now.
