Fabulous build and you get a real sense of depth - great job :)

Been looking at foam and polystyrene blocks, not yet found anything to shout about.
Will check out Rakuten as they bought out Play 247 a few years back which I used to do a lot of business with many years ago.

Dice4hire just solved his shipping issue -

you send us styrofoam, we send you DF - you save on shipping and we get the cool blocks we can't get over here ;)

The bricks you are using look awesome. I checked google but can not find any thing like them in the states. Does anyone know any place to get them for a good price here ?

I enjoyed the photos :D

Have you considered texturing the edges of the blocks to make them look like stone?

A homemade texture roller and a Green Stuff World clay roller. The 18 inch roller works better on foam.

You can also create texture with a rock.

I am looking at Rakuten (Japanese Amazon) now, and they are selling the nicer black and brown bricks for 124 yen (about a buck ten or so). How many would you want and I can try to figure out what shipping would be on them.

https://item.rakuten.co.jp/handsman/6147380/


details
Light and convenient foamed polystyrene brick!
Recommended for store display and interior!
All five colors are color variations!
[Light Blue Brown White Gray Black]

(size) 200Mm × 100Mm × 50Mm
(weight) about 28G
(Material) Styrofoam
(load-bearing) about 45Kg
Wow, Thanks for the offer.

Just considering size of box and how many should fit, a 16"x16"x16" box "should" hold 64 bricks. If stacked flat on bottom 8 would fit 2x4, so each 2" layer is 8 bricks. 56 would be 14" tall and 48 - 12" and 40 - 10". But a 16"x16"x10" box is an odd size.

Do you have any old DF outer shipping boxes? I could see how many fit in one of those. My last one was 8.3/8" tall x 13" x 21.3/4" or 213mm x 330mm x 553mm. That size box would hold about 33 standing vertically in the box in three rows of 11. I would think at least one box if not two.

It's the shipping to the Seattle area, so at least it's the right side of the country.
Let me know and BTW, NO rush. Too many other things I'm sure we all have going on.

Thanks, Bill

Neat vertical layout. Thanks for the continuing story layouts.

On another subject that needs discussing.
When are you going into business selling those blocks in the U.S.?
Seriously, I'll send you some money for a purchase and the shipping.

I like how your elevations make the going deeper down really feel like going deeper down. It gives it all so much more atmosphere.
