    Is that 3d printed or laser cut? The honeycomb blocks are sharply detailed.

    Yes Jeff, flagstone bases.
    I lasered this, I don't know how to do Shapeways so I make it happen with a laser as best as I can. Shown is the Z scale but I also did one in N scale. My phone camera didn't quite get the flagstone detail here, bad angle.

    Hi Karen what is the material you used for these stone columns and overhead beam, looks like stone and concrete construction very nice, you are a laser wizard.

    I think you have opened a new medium for Z scale laser work, I believe stone front buildings and even brick store fronts are now possible. certainly a wizard with that material. Getting the laser to etch only so deep to get that relief is fantastic work.
