But a part of this afternoon I was able to use on the LEGO Elves terrain project:
- Drawing a grid on the map of Elvendale
- Transfer outlines to a sheet of styropor
- Employ the thermocutter to cut out the shapes of the land mass.
Below is the progress so far; I hae used my old GW hot wire cutter to bevel the short piece of riverbank/coastline to the far left, but I think I need to buy a powered model like this one: http://dorchdanola-netbutik.dk/product/proxxon-gloedesav-thermocut-12e-4201/
I shall cut out the shape of the Treetop Hideaway, plus a 'creek' running from the water section (the light blue part) to the coast.
The land mass is cut from 10mm styropor, and already at level 2 the thermo cutter slides through the material like a sharp knife through butter. I am going to have SO much use for this device!!
