I did a mock-up of an ork fort gatehouse as a potential project for LaserCutCard but it isn't going anywhere at the moment.

Rather than throw away the pieces, I thought I might finish them off for "manually" for this competition.

So lots of bits of scrap plate, LOTS of rivets and probably a nice stone base for the whole thing.
Nice. You're doing the lasercut stuff professionally?

Well... it's a business but it is something part time. I have another small company that is my "day" job and LaserCutCard is my "night" job Cool

It started off as a way to make my hobby pay for itself and has ticked over but this year it will get a little more attention.
Since using a laser cutter, have you found that you start justifying using it for stuff that you'd previously done by hand before?

I know I've become a much more "efficient" model maker since having access to one.



Ok, lazy.

Well, I don't actually own one... I outsource it. They are a great bunch of guys and have been really supportive (and are not too expensive either) but they are 20km away from me. So yes, I do tend to think in terms of doing as much as possible with the laser but only if there are no time constraints. I only go out there once a week to collect stuff so if there is anything personal that I want to do, I slot it in with production cuts for LCC.

To be honest though, almost everything I am doing now has some sort of slant towards production... testing concept cuts, building prototypes or builds for the instruction manuals... stuff like that.

This is why I want to do this project... the core is a test piece that might or might not go anywhere but all the rest is going to be messy, hand-cut old school.
