Entries in this thread will be sporadic. I am trying to devote my time to finishing campaigns elsewhere. However, the Unseen University has me in it's grasp.

The next thing in the book is "There Be ...". It's a collection of small builds: the Boat House, Modo's Garden Shed, the River Wall, and the Wall of Names.

Yesterday, I was away from my place, but I took the Unseen University book and an X-Acto knife with me. I ended up cutting out all the pieces for the Boat House, except for the boats. It's small and simple so I expect it will be done by the weekend.

Pictures to follow.

I started assembling the Boat House then realized I hadn't taken pictures. Most of the parts are simple boxes.


Here is the main body with the roof being glued on.



This is the deck of the Boat House.


Here are most of the other parts before assembling. Most are simple boxes with the exception of parts 4 and 7. Part 4 is more of a triangle (the boat ramp) and part 7 is a tad more complex being "L"-shaped.


Here is the Boat House glued to the floor plan.

As you can see, unlike the Library, it is a fast build.

The front of the Boat House with the ramp and deck in place.



Before gluing parts 8,9, and 10 in place.



With parts 7-10 in place.



The Boat House building is done. All that is left are the 3 boats.



This is what the boats look like on paper.


The parts of a boat cut out and folded.


The outer shell glued together awaiting the inside/rear.

That is as far as I have gone. Hopefully I can get the boats done by Friday.

Here are all three boats completed.


The Boat House completed.


Comparison of the Boat House and the Library.

Next up will be Modo's Garden Hut, but that will have to wait while I get back to finishing some plastic kits for some campaigns.

I succumbed to temptation. I started Modo's Garden Shed last night.


The main wall and floor plan.


The main wall glued to form a pillar.


The top of the pillar with some weight to hold it down until the glue dries.



View from both sides to show the rest of the main wall glued to the floor plan.


One of three internal supports.


Two views of the supports in place.

Another problem has cropped up. It seems the inner wall (part 5, I think) is a bit too long on the right. Notice how the spaces for parts 6-10 don't match the floor plan. The top and the tabs at the bottom are a perfect fit.


Here is the part after trimming. The fit is better but the tops don't match. There will have to be some patching to do after it is glued in place. I seem to have lost the part of the wall I trimmed which could have been useful in making patches. I think there are some sections to use for patching in the back of the book. I will have to see if they are a good match.
