A while ago (see page 131) I found a box with Resin & Scratch built hovels & tents.
They were in dire need of repair, repaint & rebasing. Those I did, & got back to
mining the Lead (& other materials) Mountain.

Now I found ANOTHER box of the same kind of thing.  :o :o :o

Yet more repairing, repainting & rebasing! Hopefully I won't find a third large box. :D

Using up:-
Cotton reel, two tops from fruit juice concentrate, CD disks, 1/35th AFV wheel,
inside bits from spray bottles, chain from a broken jewelry piece, and some Birch tree seeds.

Another bit of scenery for my abandoned fair ground. :)

That is so great!  Do you have an overall plan and make pieces to fit, or do you just gather the bits and see what comes to mind?

Most definitely the latter.  :D

I was told that when they stated making the stuff for Alien, the original plan had been to
replicate the detailed drawings... that didn't work.
What did work (very well) was to buy out the local model shop. The modellers were given
a free reign to make things. When the Ship fires up its engines you are looking at an awful
lot of Tamyia 1/35th Tiger tank road wheels.

Now that is the kind of job I would like. :D

You needn't be, I am one who doesn't hit the target, merely draws a ring around what I hit & call that the target.  :D ;D lol

My DNA, if examined, would probably show my ancestors came from the Principality of Serendip . ;)

Go for it Spinal. Useful for:- PA, Zombies, Zona Alpha, etc.
What with Osprey bringing out a Modern 'beastie/thingy hunting game, my scenery might eventually get used.  :D

Those cabins and huts are great and very useful.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

2019 Painting Challenge :
figures bought: 500+
figures painted: 57
9 vehicles painted
4 terrain pieces scratchbuilt

Wonderful useful terrain.  Though you probably need to see who is sneaking those Resin & Scratch built hovel packed boxes in you storage shed...

I know what you mean. When I did a full complete inventory the other year after our gaming club closed (and my stuff all came home) it was really surprising. Cleaning out your storage is almost as bad as moving.
