Help from #10196 Grand Carousel owners requested
Seemed like a good idea at the time, but I started gathering parts from my own bins, and bricklinking bits here and there for the #10196
Grand Carousel. I could never justify spending the amount of money that a BNISB set costs, and I'm happy with a few substitutions here and there. I don't care for the sound brick either so that saves £100 on Bricklink.
Most of the parts are easily found (relatively) but the one thing I can't do without are the 8 fabric panels, part 85195. Currently only 6 are available on Bricklink for £27 each.... again, no thanks. I want to make my own. I'll be experimenting with a few different materials, but what I need is a precise template to cut to.
Are there any #10196
owners out there who could provide me with an accurate template? Could you pop one of the triangular panels on a scanner with a piece of dark paper behind it and email me a file? Or trace around the outside of one with a pencil on a piece of paper and send it via snail mail? I'd be eternally grateful. If I can't make my own panels, I'll be wasting my time gathering all the bricks, and I don't want to start spending big on Bricklink to have an unfinished project at the end of it.
If anyone can help, please give me a PM.
