Talk to the union rep...

 Over the past week I've gotten more of the Displayboard aka my trial o torture finished up. The lights are now completely run and wired and all I need to do is get the final programming done. Thankfully Scott is working on that 8) .. for one that's not my bag and two I still have a ton to get painted and done. The landing pad is still cycling but the door lights and runners need to be finished up.

 The Gantry and tie in piece is almost completely finished up but now I'm in a bit of a conundrum. I was going to go with a rock look on the back and side walls but with everything in place the working area is tight and would be insane to work on .. I started cutting and measuring some rock molds I made and I wasn't feeling good about it. Last night I put some deep thought into it and I have a new plan but it's going to require some reworking. Or at least more designing.. I've still got some time so I think I should be solid, this weekend it will be a trip to the Art Store for some of the stuff I think I'm going to need.
 I had the main top deck figured out but with the changes it may have to change.
Sadly I mis cut the battlement section so I have to recut it so I can attach the top cover around the rim.
I also got most of the brass one the Knight.. I'm going to work on his arm and chain sword. I want to get all the blended areas done so I can start to put him together and start the weathering. I'd rather have him together for that part so I know where the grime is going to build up more. A little less then three weeks to go now. Hopefully I can have the Knight done by this weekend or early next week so I can than put a ton of effort into wrapping up the display.
