Perhaps the reason that I've dabbled with things Titanic was a close encounter at an impressionable age with Clarke's 'Imperial Earth'.
Hence the montage of pentominoes (old piccy), and a little model I built a while back - two decades separate them.
Funny old life innit?
Modelling in 3D has spawned all manner of strange ideas about stepper motors and little CNC rigs. What I lack is a good enough reason, nay, a demand, for large numbers of identical spangly but fiddly items.
