Title: BSC2020 gamer MAC War wrecked airport for AK47
Post by: gamer Mac on December 22, 2019, 06:27:12 PM
I have slowly been putting together forces and terrain to play AK47 in 15mm and I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to build something
So I need terrain objective templates towns and villages etc so I thought a war wrecked Airport would fit in the theme, so I am thinking a control tower and terminal buildings suitably  damaged and maybe a hanger and a bit of runway with a crashed plane if I can find a suitable model any suggestions welcome?

Great idea.

As itís for AK47 Iíd suggest a 1/100 scale Dakota  ;)

Have you seen the price of 1/100 scale planes just for a wreck?

Nope, but I bet itís steep.

I had 3 of them once upon a time...would have popped once in the post to you for nowt, but sadly that project didnít make the house move a few years back.

Title: Re: BSC2020 gamer MAC War wrecked airport for AK47
Post by: gamer Mac on December 22, 2019, 10:29:13 PM
first one I looked at would $56, a bit steep for a model to wreck

I' looking forward to seeing what you do with this as I have dabbled in 15mm modern as well.

Have a look at http://www.blotz.co.uk or http://www.blacksitestudios.com or just do a search for any Team Yankee scenery.

How about a Mig-19?

Saw plenty of action in Africa, and will set you back less than a tenner including postage.

You could drybrush the 'ragged' areas where you scored it green to be the vegetation getting into the gaps.

I thought  I had better post some more photos to try and keep up with some of the great builds going on in this competition
So not much to show as a lot of it is just painting
Wishing I had had a better idea
Well I need a runway for the airport

You might go for a fuel cache or windsock to spruce things up a bit.  Broken down aircraft or bits thereof, aircraft tug, floodlights, boarding stairs, luggage trolleys. etc.
