My local hobby supplier has let me down and I cannot get the large amount of strip styrene of a particular size I require. Normally I cut my own but even that did not produce enough.
But every setback has a silver lining as it forced me to work on detail I was putting off 'til later. Which ultimately was most gratifying.
It also relieved me of the tedious aspect of making eight of these constructs plus I am catching up on current Dinosaur theory.
