Lots of great suggestions.  The idea when I started this project was that it was a remote, unmaintained and infrequently used landing strip. Perhaps, initially built either just before or during WW2 but seeing continued but declining use in the years flowing. The perfect place to rendezvous with fugitives, exchanges gold or weapons for stolen idols, or stash a getaway plane.

.....or any one of a number of destinations favoured by Ryan Air.

I agree the X, whilst a nice touch, is rather limiting. Scatter items for different times and setting could include landing lights and those little coloured blunt cones you see at the sidecand end of strips, all suitably distressed, chipped and/ or rusted.

Thank you  Ockman.

A few bits of scatter terrain is all I managed this past week (they could be used on any of my Pulp Alley tables...).


More pictures and some 'splaining on my blog.

I'd say your on the money.They already set the scene nicely. Still a big fan of multi purpose scenery,if for no other reason than the sheer amount of time it saves,by being re usable.

Thank you Mark. :)

I am looking forward to the other structure and old pick-up. The table should have enough on it once those two pieces are done.

Last week the pick up and field hangar finally arrived (as they came from the UK it actually didn't take that long...). The Tilly from Warlord Games is finished (it's TINY!) and I have started assembling the field hangar (not the best pictures of the pick-up I'm afraid):



More on my blog.

I wish I'd put money on which hanger you'd pick.
I'll be honest I'm not keen on the tilley(sculpt) it doesn't seem to quite fit your style.

No the idea's great its just like a fair numbers of their models. Its ill researched,and in this case ill proportioned. It appears to be a hybrid of two different models/mk's.

It's supposed to be Tilly 10 (I think the vehicle in your first photo). I picked it because it looked the most non-military of their sculpts but I think in retrospect I would have gone with Rubicon's
Opel Blitz or, possibly, their CMT truck (coz, you know..."Canadian" ;)).

BTW, thank you Mr.Phipps.

Being rather blase about the difference between 1/56 and 1/48, I'm currently building a Tamiya 1:48 Tilly, which fits well with my 28mm figures:

Thank you for the link Andy. I tried mixing some 1/48 transports with 28mm figures years ago and it didn't really look good. I suppose it would depend a lot on the type of vehicle and the figures used though.
