I found a gum lid that I will be turning into a silo. Also put together a planter box and a crashed pod.

It is a word in English, at least as an architectural term. I think we borrowed if from Spanish. The verb is Mirar. Interesting aside, the word Admiral is from the same root.

My dentist would be most displeased if he saw me viewing this thread Nice work so far everyone.

Excellent to see all these projects getting started, very promising.
Today I added a second box of sweet to my entry, delimiting the roof of the building :

Nice work folks, and like Monkeytroll said lots of variety.

I am really thinking about mine, the "sweety wrapperr" is so obscured I feel I am cheating, going to have to work harder on some extra bits with sweets in mind.

I wasn't going to join this one. I really wasn't. But then I saw the tictac container on the shelf of my local shop.

While hunting this weekend I was inspired to try something I've always considered, but haven't tried, a billboard from an existing item. I was eating a Cliff Bar on the stand, and thought to myself it would make a great billboard for this project. It's sugary (coconut and chocolate), with a great image that could be used for multiple scales. Thus here is the start of that:





Then I've also made some progress on the crashed escape pod. I've used some push pins, part of a russian hind model kit, and a repurposed plasticard square to make a hatch, and various fidly bits.





Lastly, as one of the items to use is sprue, I've made my first foray into plant life from sprue to add some small ferns to my planter box:

Hi monkeytroll,

It's rather uninspired (and hopefully not considered unfair that it is only cardboard) but what is your view on me joining the contest using this nerds box as the main building material (along with lots of hot glue and probably a little sculpting). I'm planning to try to make a cistern/fountain type piece of terrain for D&D

Sounds great. Random sweetie boxes work well
I seem to be making some kind of Joker funland out of various sweetie boxes. I'm not sure how that sits within the rules? But in the meantime, building number 2 (from a Retro sweetie box) is almost done:

Thanks for the encouragement Vik, Graven, and monkeytroll. And Graven, those joker buildings are looking really cool. I really like the design.

I've gotten started on the cistern, but not very far yet. It's going to measure a little over 2 inches by 3 three inches. I've cut up the nerds box and started laying out the measurements.


I hope to get more done on it soon.

Here's a bit more progress:






I've started sculpting a hawk head statue that will be spitting out water into the pool. This cistern in in the basement of Tresendar Manor (Lost Mines of Phandelver). The only information on the Tresendar family was that one of the family members was known as the "Black hawk". I decided that the a hawk could be the family crest (as apposed to a helicopter)
