Very nice.
Thanks Bob. I am trying to actually finish things, rather than put them in boxes for... later. ;)

That tarted up nicely.
Thanks Syrinx0, it is better than the original paint job & (I think) the camouflage bushes help. :D

Having done some plants, what could come next?
A charity shop provided the answer...PLANT POTS!

In a good old fashioned wargaming way, I turned them upside down,
added a few bits & painted them. :D

What a cool use of the texture on the plant pots.  That is a really neat find.

They appear to be hydroponic horticultural facilities...

Do you know those shapers that you get inside shoes when you buy a pair?
Normally they are card or compressed paper, but my friend Dave Brookes
got a plastic pair. 'Right!' he said, 'Make something out of them'
The challenge was set, the gauntlet well & truly thrown down.

Here then are enough Sci-Fi bits to create a crashed spaceship.
Plenty of cover during a firefight, or places the... whatever can be hidden.

Picked up a Corgi Saladin from e-bay, to add to my Wild Boys games.
With it came a Corgi SU100, you know the one, gloss brilliant white with bright transfers.
Well it was so badly bashed about I decided to turn it into a piece of scenery,
i.e. a knocked out AFV.
Oh & as I don't like getting cold I changed it from winter white, to temperate green.
I hope you like.
