using the merged layer and resize by 30 this time. Position them like on my tag, and merge
visible. Now un X all the layers.
Bring the merged wall to the top. Add your main tube, and position it near the wall. Move
this tube layer below the wall layer ... in my case it has no feet, so the wall hides that nicely!
