1:72 scale fire escapes in Trotec (acrylic)

following on from my 1:43 scale fire escape, I thought I’d see if it would be possible in the next scale down 4mm to the foot. Frankly, I thought it wouldn’t be. I knew I couldn’t use the same 0.8mm ply, as it was too thick to be scale, so the only option I had was 0.5mm Trotec, but cutting the little square grills out (less than 0.5mm square) without the remainder sticking in the hole so leaving them in seemed impossible - but after an afternoon working the problem, I succeeded. I offer these for sale, so I shan’t go into too much detail - but for those who really want to do it - it is possible if you persist!
