Malcolm (surname? Sorry - don't know) and others elsewhere have requested walkthroughs/tutorials. I've thought about this from time to time, which is why I took a few pics of Leadwood as it took shape.
SO: over the next couple of weeks, I'll construct a new Wild West building as a stand-alone piece, describing each stage of the process, the materials I choose, tips and tricks and what label of pinot noir goes down best when working with balsa wood.
Similarly, I plan for the (near) future to document the design/construction of a modular futuristic city, a couple of tracked sentry robots and a few other things.
I hope it all proves useful, entertaining and educational.
