    Beautiful. Except for that font. :x

    Also, I wonder if it would have been cheaper (or even have worked as well) if you had used 45º slopes, both inverted and regular, sideways?
    Just a thought...

    Not that you need more accolades, but I posted this on my Model Building Secrets blog.

    Thanks everyone, for the kind words and links!

    @L.D.M.: Heh. I chose that font for its evil nature! (Just be glad I didn't go with Comic Sans...my first choice.)

    As to using normal slopes...It might be worth playing with - although the bigger brick footprint means resolution is going to be even worse. I'd also be concerned about the viewing angle needed.

    But...hrm. Might be worth looking into.

    @Lewa Rocks:
    If you have access to a LEGO shop, they sometimes get the trans-green, trans-clear, and trans-orange in for the PaB wall. Otherwise you're looking at a dime each from Shop@Home....not fun!

    I worship you, Chris..............You creations are so impressive they make mine look sort of small and pitiful.......Even if you do steal other people's charachters for the Brick House.
