The Yellow Pelican Mining Co. - starting the main building

Construction of the main building started with this corrugated cardboard core. In the first instance the pieces were held together with masking tape as I worked out the shape and size.

Later I used my tried and tested technique of gluing the cardboard together with my hot glue gun and then strengthening the edges with strips of torn newspaper glued in place and sealed with PVA glue.

The edges were further strengthened with strips of manilla envelope also glued in place with PVA glue.

I used fruit packing case wood (picked up free from Pershore Market) to clad the cardboard structure.

I will be adding detail later, but as you can see the main mine building is progressing well.
