My youngest son is currently studying interior design at University. Part of his current course work required the designing and building of a structure using shape, light and space, (All a bit beyond me, I'm afraid....:shock:)

He has never been involved in modelling before and sought my advice with regard to materials, etc. As you can probably guess, I pointed him towards plastikard and gave him a few tips on cutting and glueing.

The following two photos show the work in progress:






I'm impressed with what he has achieved thus far. The modernistic look of the roof 'sculpture' somehow looks right and in keeping with contemporary buildings that are springing up in cities across the world.

All I need to do now is to persuade him to include a railway!

I love the shapes and the modelling is excellent, particularly the steps.

Well it certainly looks modern, but why did he put all his scrap pieces up on top? :mutley

Like you, it's beyond me!

Hi, Phill!

Nice to hear from you.

I'll let him finish his course first; it's only just over another three years! Then we'll see what he can manage. I doubt if he'll be allowed (by me) to do any G*R stuff though.

Very best regards my friend,

Perry

Having taught him the modelling skills, maybe he'll get the bug.

I have to say, his design is certainly interesting.
