These pictures are at a midway-point of completing the cardboard coverage, to let you see the method. As always, click to enlarge.

|Some of the pool will be included|
|The main structure. The pieces of pink foam were stuck in to add strength. You can see the tunnel entrance leading to Gollum's cave at the bottom left.|
|The tunnel leading to Gollum's cave. The hole is to allow movement of the figures in a game. Gollum's cave is to the left.|
|The old and new boards side-by-side. The old rock wall will be extended slightly and plenty of new walkways will be added all over the place!|

Hope you like the new addition! I've had plenty of fun building it. Since taking pictures, I have added stalagmites and stalactites to Gollum's cave. The next step will be papier maché, which I haven't done since Primary School! Then I'll add scenic cement to texture, then the walkways, then paint... phew, still plenty to do yet! And I haven't even finished the first board completely...
