Box room or room box


Lots of bits done but a little hard to describe.

In the belief that it would make more sense if I work from the end result here is one of the more complete bits I’ve been working on.

Warning – small over-load in mind department

Am finding my thoughts trying to float off, with the floor, into calmer, ready planned waters and was skiving around on the web, visiting some of my usual haunts – the weather forecast, email, Jane Harrop kits … – and took a fancy, oh so strong a fancy, to doing a small box scene based on her 1:24 bathroom kit – this I’ve got to see some time soon, when the pennies are ripe for the picking.  Musing on its possibilities as we speak …
