I started this display board the other week. This patterned sheet of hardboard was left at my Aunt’s house when we cleared it after she passed away. It has a glossy finish to look like tiles and I hoped the slightly embossed pattern might still be visi…

The Trygon is complete, although I hadn’t glued his head on at this stage [yeah I don’t know why either?].Annoyingly when I did glue it in place I still got the torso out of whack, which meant the head still isn’t straight and more importantly couldn’t…
