The perennial problem with democracies is that of choosing leaders.  It’s like picking teachers of sex education in schools - those who would be good at it don’t want to do it, while those who are keen would best be behind iron bars.

An update of my model first issued some two/three years ago.

This is where it all happens - from grande guignole tragedy to frothy bedroom farce; from 007 to the Three Stooges; from murder most foul to a honey-trap for a prince - where anything can happen and probably will.

This set is designed to contain as many possibilities for the user as may be possible within a small area and to this end will have no less than 30 - yes, THIRTY - user-adjustables, with doors, windows, curtains, trapdoors etc., etc..

We start with the basic set shown below. This is all one prop, immovable of course.  As we add more and more, these will be made separate props, so that the user may either make them invisible, or operate them.  Some places are obvious from the pic below, but be sure that we have other surprises in store.

(Giggle)  I like your sense of humour.

I’m afraid that the arched doors are dummies.  I did think about making them opening, but I’ve got to stop somewhere!

OTOH, with the placing of the North panelled wall of the bedroom, you can see the site of six user-adjustables!  The flat top behind the wall is of course necessary to make the secret passage dark and mysterious.  More tomorrow.

(Guffaw)  Very witty, Eustace.  You ought to be writing gags for Morecambe and Wise.  Wait - they’re dead!  LOL

In the pic below you see the latest prop, with a familiar scene over the mantelpiece.  You should now be able to pick out the site of eleven user-adjustables, but I will leave you the puzzle of sorting them out.  I think that I had better start filling some of these holes before going any further and   that’s the job for the weekend.

Thanks!  red face

Will we be able to flip the Castle Combe scene down and see Vincent (Price?) Van Gogh still watching our every move?

You remembered! 

Well, this is a make-over, which is to say that everything is being restructured and made more efficient.  Most of it will appear to be the same as before, but there will be some obvious differences too ; some things will be moved to another position and I have a couple of entirely new gimmicks.  In reply to your direct questions, no, the painting (Cromer) does not flip, but I have a picture of Boris Karloff to watch over everything. He will appear later.

Below you may see the first user-movable prop - the fireplace as (apparently) normal and then as rotated, opening for guys to rush in or a girl to flee a wicked stepmother; whatever.  Just don’t get burned on your way out.

To the right of the fireplace is a display cabinet with two sliding glass doors.

At the other side, the sliding panel is hidden.  I have also placed the roof of the four-poster bed.

Here you see how the roof of the four-poster can be lowered to smother the sleeping victims.  Here too, the panel is slid to the right.

Wait a sec—did the fireplace rotate in the original model?? If so, I never knew that. If not, is that the point of this revamp (or at least one of the points)?
