Does anyone have any links to share or other kinds of information on instructions for making rammed earth formwork?  I want to start making small models and learn about the whole process that's involved in DIY vs buying concrete formwork or something else.

Thanks!! There is a lot of good information in there, and I saw on their website they also have info on Solar Electricity among other subjects.  Very helpful!
 
You frighten me terribly. I would like to go home now. Here, take this tiny ad:
