Wow Peter, page after page of stunning stuff. You've tarted up stuff to much better than the originals and your inventiveness for the scenery - well I don't have enough hats to take off to you sir!!

That is a very cool vehicle! It reminds me a lot of the spaceships in some classic sci-fi illustrations, especially with the backdrop.

Thanks Pattus. I & one of my brothers used to Blu-Tac Chris Foss (?) posters to our bedroom walls. I always like the imagery.

Chris Foss illustrations are exactly the style I was thinking of. A great source  of inspiration, clearly!

The 'Other' Space tug.

Both were from broken power drills.
As I often say, 'I don't throw things out' Give (often) Sell (sometimes) Horde even,
but never throw out. :D

Second lot.
Added to the 'normal' ingredients, banana stalks & old brush bristles, I have
this time added tomato vines.  :D

Some of the alien flora evokes the joss stick forests found in my bedroom c. 1974. I'm off to listen to 'Relics'...

Those all look great, and I really like that space tug! The alien flora really do look alien - I recognized the tomato stems after you pointed them out in the thread but my suspension of disbelief was pretty complete before that. Very inspiring.

Some items that Pete completed or modified.

Firstly a warning sign for my Rhodesian 20mm gaming.


Then a slight modification to the Rhodesian barns that he kindling completed for me.
After posting the original barns, someone pointed out that they should have concrete floors. So Pete kindly took them back, and with his small force of labourers, he added concrete floors.






Great jobs as ever mate. Thankyou.
