I started another series of study models at a slightly larger scale. They're really starting to feel like 4 x 4's now.
So far, I've discovered some really critical things.
One, the proper and accurate alignment of these pieces is essential to making a large pattern. With out the proper alignment the pattern quickly degenerates into chaos.
Two, that lashing the connections during the assembly process will make keeping the pieces aligned much, much easier.
And three, this pattern is going to us more than one hundred twenty poles - I'll need about 40 more.
The action figures are about the right scale.
