He has already shown his discomfort with the lack of space. He has decided he really likes the cardboard walls as teeth cleaners, however... And while he can't curl inside, he is willing to step into the fort and leave a lot of cat hair inside... I hope that won't be a problem with painting...I am unsure if you are leaving enough space in the centre for the kitty to curl up in.
I have no idea, to be honest. I have never seen the original GorkaMorka Cardboard fort in person. The shape of the base of my fort coud be abstracted to a rough diamond, measuring 65cm in its longer diagonal and 43cm in its shorter diagonal. And I'm really worried about trukk size. My outer gates are about 9cm wide and 6cm tall! I hope to receive my trukks soon (standard GoMo trukk and trakk) and I really hope they fit. If not, converting them will take even longer!I was cobbling together a fort a while back. This is inspiring me to get back to work!
It looks like it will be 'uge! Or am I wrong and it will approximate the original GoMo fort?
Thanks! I also started a thread about this project in Dakadakka, but It seems they have no love for GorkaMorka, so I finally came to the right place to share my progress and Ideas! I'd be glad to follow your advances and plans to build your own fort! (and that WaterWorld Atoll is a greatl image, deeply engraved in all our minds, by far the best thing in that movie)Wow, I saw your video on Youtube and it really inspired me to start making my own fort, I love the design and I just wanted to thank you for being an inspiration to what I am finding an incredible enjoyable project to make.
Looking forward to seeing your fort finished! I have a WIP project log on Dakkadakka and might start one on here now seeing as you were my main inspiration (along with the Waterworld Atoll)
Yes, I am, although there is one less layer of added metal sheets than in the virtual model, so it will show a bit more background color. I started with very dark gray for the background walls, but I will probably repaint that test wall using a lighter shade.That just keeps looking better and better! Are you sticking to the multicoloured scheme from the YouTube video?
