MRJ Issue 270
  • The Modelling of Black Lion Crossing

    Geoff Kent



    Continuing from the previous issue, Geoff Kent details more of the construction. Well-known for his ability to interpret the buildings he chooses in plastic sheet, he also uses other familiar materials and here he shows how they can be used imaginatively.

    In the future Geoff will return by showing us in detail the methods he uses, and we very much look forward to that.
