"Thanks for your advice Nick, I've given it a lot of thought and I think I'm going to make it again, simply because the changes I've made in the new armature design are so different. As you can see in the pictures, I've drawn out…"

"I should add - I only drew one wall with a strip along the side and one with a strip along the bottom - but really a wild wall would need both, so it can be firmly attached along the bottom and at least one edge.  Here are 2 more pictures th…"

"Here are some pictures of a wild wall on my set. They might be a little confusing, so I posted 3 from different angles so you should be able to understand it if you study them a bit. You can clearly see the 2 clamps. There's a strip of…"

"I just did a quick and awful sketch showing a way to make wild walls (removable walls): Sorry - I don't usually draw with a tablet,and I never ever do technical drawing with straight lines. So this looks terrible. But I hope it gets the idea…"

"This landscape dope sounds like a great option, I'm going to try and find out what the ingredients are called in Dutch and if I can buy them here. It would be really useful to have a sturdy set base, even though I'm working in 1:9 scale I…"
StopmoNick replied to Ron Cole's discussion Canon Rebel T5 Adapter & Lens?
"That should work.  I use a non genuine Canon AC adapter on my 7d, and it works, but I notice two things.  When I turn the camera on, I get a message to say the camera cannot communicate with this battery, do I want to use it anyway?…"
Strider replied to Ron Cole's discussion Canon Rebel T5 Adapter & Lens?
"That power supply should be just fine. Says it works with your camera, that's the only thing I know to check with power supplies. Aside from checking for no-name generic brands rather than the expensive ones made by the camera companies. But…"
