I had to scratch-build a lot of this, which I hate!
So it took two years longer than expected to physically finish the X-Mansion. I got blocked by the final detail, the stairs leading up to the attic, which of course is Ororo’s. The dollhouse I used wasn’t designed to have stairs to the roof, but I thought it would be fine to have a trap door and a smaller staircase. Finding one that nearly fit, cutting it down, building the trap door and banisters and miter-cutting and painting… well I hated all that.
But I had some good energy mid-July, and I got a few UFOs (unfinished objects) tackled.
And putting the plants on the stairs as a little Easter Egg made me very happy. The trapdoor still needs a handle, and I ordered one but it isn’t here yet.
Why are 90s DC characters in my #80sxmen #actionfigurediorama? For Berlin Pride Week, baby! And Apollo and Midnighter look so at home.
