That's a great looking garage door design and much better than I have planned for my garage diorama I just bought a 250mm crimping machine, to use with flattened aluminium plates, but yours is so much better. I found the zip file for printing it out, but i'm looking for 1/24, 1/25 or G scale and no idea how to change it

I've never gone back to Yes Paste because it failed for me so many times. I've not had any problems with MiniGraphics Wallpaper Mucilage in the years since. As with any product, I'm sure different people will have different results. I know how heartbreaking it is to have something fail, as the Yes Paste did for me.

I papered my dollhouse months ago. I bought high quality paper, and I used wallpaper mucilage. I have a 7 room house, and felt pleased with the results. There were one or two places where I noticed a bubble, and I used a pin and tried what people suggest (and that did not work -I still noticed the bubble). Today it is humid. It has rained since yesterday, and it is damp feeling. All the wallpaper mucilage has become wet! My paper in EVERY room is tacky and bubbling all over. I just installed baseboards, and was working on crown molding. I am sick. It looks terrible, and I don't think it can be repaired. The baseboards were to give myself a project during COVID 19. My windows are open in my actual house because it is only in the 70s here (Illinois). I would not have known this would be so sensitive to moisture. My bathroom paper was so sweet. It was white with tiny ovals containing roses. The glue is nwt bleeding through! I would not recommend wallpaper mucilage! It reactivates or something? I am ready to throw my house out a window. It took a long time to coordinate papers, and I have fashioned matching window treatments for some rooms, bought rugs, some furniture.

Every time you use a motor to make something work (windmill, clock) I'm always amazed at the amount of thought and work you put into your builds. I can't wait to see your working garage door. I know you'll figure out a way.
