Abandoned Airstrip for Pulp Alley (updated April 30th)
« on: March 26, 2018, 06:59:38 AM »
At the suggestion of Elk101 and tin shed gamer I have started a new thread for my third Pulp Alley table: a remote, seldom used airstrip. The base will be foam on plywood with a smattering of scatter terrain and a couple of old buildings. So far I have completed a Nissen/Quonset hut and a fuel tank as well starting on the table itself.




More photos and words on my blog.

Great, looking forward to seeing this. There was a thread last year where we were posting images of unusual airfields that would not look out of place on a Pulp table, so it will be good to see an actual Pulp gaming airfield.

The overgrown vegetation around the fuel tank looks spot on. I really like that piece. Is it a complete scratch build?

  Really nice aging. I'm looking forward to the fuel tank blowing up after a direct hit.

Thanks for this, having looked at the blog it was encouraging to see that we can build a pulp table with minimal props and scenic elements, especially as I'm trying to keep costs down just in case the boys don't get as enthusiastic as I'm hoping.

It is also encouraging that my idea of a half abandoned British outpost/airship station isn't so far off the mark...

Thank you everyone. :)

No, it is a Novus Design Studio fuel tank from their SciFi range. Quite a nice model.

I think you can have a very enjoyable game with just a few pieces. At Trumpeter's Salute we used perhaps half (maybe even less) of the jungle bases I made for my jungle board.

Thanks for the link. That's a nice bit of scenery for the money. It obviously helps that you've made such a nice job of it!

Nicely done! I love the fuel tank. Very simple and very effective.  8) 8) :-*

Looking forward to following this thread.

Great stuff.  The weathering and vegetation growth is brilliant.  Can't wait to see more.

An airstrip is on my list of builds (some day!!) Looking forward to your build. What you have done so far looks great!
