To recap: Mirontaine of Bordeaux manufacture a fold up card model of a French town square which is smaller than HO scale. So, I got a reprographics firm to enlarge it by a factor of 1.7.
|The original model sitting on a sheet of the HO scale enlarged version|
|Use a stylus rather than a knife to etch the folds|
|The knife is used to cut out the shapes.|
|Only tackled one section today - the smaller original is in my hand.|
|Ready to assemble.|
|A telling comparison - looks more than a factor of 1.7 was involved.|
|Now it can sit next to the other HO scale buildings.|

Last night's dinner:
Lasagne at my sister's - forgot to take photograph.
With nothing else available to read, I returned (with confidence) to these peerless diaries.
A friend of mine, who hadn't read the diaries, said that Kenneth Williams had always struck him as having been, "bitter as fuck". That pretty accurately sums up the diaries.
