New Mystery Model, parts #9, #16 & #18

or “The Pointy Bits”

It’s probably quite easy to guess what these are.

The working names for these parts are:

#9 Front Tower Roof
#16 Rear Tower Roof
#18 Second Floor, Left Side, Rear Tower Roof.


Opposite sides tiled first

This suggests that there are going to be three towers to this model, whatever it turns out to be. I do have plans and designs I’m just keeping them to myself for a little while longer.

These are all made from cardboard, cut from the remains of an Amazon delivery package, and covered in tiles in the same way as the other roof pieces from the small cereal bar box. 




Opposite sides trimmed before adding remaining tiles
That small box has made all the tiles for these pieces so far, but what’s left will not be enough for the main roof piece of the model.


Pieces #9 & #18 were cut out as four matching triangles and glued together.

Piece #16 has two pairs of different size triangles making for a thinner tower rather than the square tower of the other two.




All sides trimmed
I stuck the tiles onto opposite sides and allowed them to dry before trimming the sides up, then I added the other two sides of tiles. 

Once these were dry those sides were trimmed.

So far the best guesses have been:
  • A city ruined by an earthquake.
  • A brothel.
