Welcome to DJK's Fantasy World where I'll be building different models for table top role play games and discussing my writing, including my novels based on the very first fantasy character I played. The models are made from recycled materials where possible, although various commercially purchased products will also be used and discussed.
I'll also throw in the occasional book and theatre reviews, you can't beat live performance. Plus my Dr Who tapestry progress.

Mystery Model - Top Floor
The model is growing - the second floor pieces get added on.
The second floor really was a jigsaw puzzle since this one was created in many pieces and I had to refer back to the original photos to try and identify which parts went where.
No I still have not found the book I drew up the original
design in and listed all the pieces.
Here we have the central main section (part #3) just above
To the right a rear room with its own roof and the front
tower continuing up. Between them is going to be a section of just sloping
To the left are parts 15 a rear tower and #19 a sloping extension
extending the main section.
Rather than build the internal walls on these I've used
strips of foam-board on the interior joins. This gives me something to glue
together but does not use the whole sheet of foam-board up on internal walls.
The strips I think will give the model enough internal support. They also give me
something to hold onto on the inside of the model when twisting it about to
work on at different angles.
