...............................Construction of the Colosseum..............................







The Colosseum is certainly the most difficult piece of the model to build. All angles are rounded and the cardboard isn’t too enthusiastic about that game, which requests to find several tricks to create the illusion of an oval building.













To line up the three levels of arcades is somewhat difficult, since I must separate each terrace from the others in order to cut out the niches.











Inside, the first task is to form reinforcements in hard cardboard to hold up the pieces of the mounting.
















As ever when I’m working, there are a lot of construction scrap lying on the table.
