New stuff! And this time it's not MDF. I'm talking about LaserCutCard and their card kits. 'Seriously? Card made stuff?' I hear the sceptics ask. And the answer is definitely yes. The quality/price relation is simply unbeatable. The designs are neat and the product is cool (and cheap!!).

In this case, these are six shipping containers. I decided to do them all at the same time, instead of finishing one before getting on the next. I thought this would be less mind exhausting.

You may be thinking how strong this card really is. The use of multiple layers gives the kit an amazing strength. Here you can see a couple of pics from LaserCutCard FB. This is a picnic bench:
|And that is a damn brick!|
Little more to say. I didn't conduct the experiment on my own, but the impression I have is that the containers are really tough. This is how they look when finished:

The tricky stuff here is painting them. It's the same problem you face with any container, due to the surfaces. I primed them white and then needed two or three layers to get some opacity. Those among you who use airbrush will find this easier, but for me and my brushes this endeavour took me more time than what I spent for the assembling!
|Do you think this blog is called Old School Workshop for nothing?'|
I added some corporate signs and some weathering on them and...
|Ready to fill the board!|
|Mandatory comparison pic, next to mighty Michi's beautiful container (Ainsty Castings) :)|
I also got a couple of buildings from LaserCutCard, so I'm not already done... :D
