Something I just thought of, did you have the wire stapled into the wood? I made the mistake of thinking I could have tape down the mesh and it would stay. I used trash bags ties to hold the mesh down.Originally posted by JediDBM
In/ under the part that collapsed, I didn't have anything but the wire and wood, and the top caved in just like a cake. My paper mache Hoth mountain kind of looked like Mt St Helens after it erupted back in the early eighties. Next time I get to build my diorama, may still be a while, but when I do, I will use a little heavier wire and stuff balled up newspaper to support the inside.
