Sometimes, when I’m wrestling with a particularly fiddly bit of construction which I just can’t figure out, I begin to despair. I think that maybe it can’t be done, maybe there’s just no way to make it look good without a load of studs sticking out or something. At those moments I look at the work of Nick Trotta on his Flickr page and I remember how it is possible to find incredible solutions and deliver something truly jaw dropping like his Cloudless 3V which doesn’t for a moment look like it’s made of fiddly plastic pieces, but is fit to swoosh among the very stars themselves.
He’s even posted this neat video so you can
steal all his construction techniques build one yourself.
