What you are looking at is my first attempt at building a mental block using a new type( ? ) of puzzle building. I ordered 500 sheets of PVC plastic from some place in texas... Your probably wondering how big these 500 sheets are if i ordered 500 of them. They are credit card sized... I cut them up to form the outside of the piece, and fill the inside with milliput/magic sculp/resin. took 15 minutes to make that one piece.. not bad. it was my first

This sounds like the technique that the Japanese are using at the Construction Studio. How do you like this method? What tools are good for cutting the sheets? What glues do you like? What process works well for getting the pieces cut to the right size? Thanks for sharing the photos.

but they are using solid chunks of pvc without filling the inside.... they are solid pieces cut from a "brick" of pvc.
>>How do you like this method?
Im liking it alot... Yesterday i made another one of that same part in 15 minutes
>>What tools are good for cutting the sheets?
Scissors!
>>What glues do you like?
Cyanoacrylate based glues. Brands: BMI Maxi-Cure you can get it at any hobby store, but it wont say BMI on it. The hobby stores put their own label on. BOSTIK glue is also good, but commercial only i think. I bought a pound of it on ebay for $20. You want something runny, but not too runny
>>What process works well for getting the pieces cut to the right size?
I print out a template that i designed after making the first piece
