Wow, this thread keeps getting better and better.

What scale are those Kryomek figures?

I found another plastic box so it was converted to a habitat. Again lots of random parts including a LoL doll piece, Hot wheels wheel and 3D printed parts!





I've also started on some prefab/shanty buildings and here are the basic shells. I need to add lots of details to them. Also a couple of mutant testing stations in the front of the picture







Thanks for looking

Really cool builds here; I can't wait to see it all put together in a little street scene and painted with a few figures! :)

Speaking of figures, I have to say I'm very charmed by your Kryomek models. You should honestly send some photos of them to Scotia Grendel for promotion purposes, as I had no idea they painted up so nicely!  8)

Thanks you. Yes, the Kryomek figures are really lovely but their photos on the web site don't do them justice.

Here's the first 2 prefab buildings I started a while back. They took a long time gluing and fitting all the bits and pieces together. The main shapes are made from PVC foam, cardboard and plasticard, with all sorts of pieces glued on, including a bazillion rivets I cut up to make.

The build of the next 2 are complete using similar materials to the other ones. There's a  Garage







and a kind of a Bunker

I'm still working on my prefab buildings, but I managed to paint the remaining habitat I posted a few messages back.







Its the same colours as before with some weathering using a light airbrush spray and chipping with  a piece of sponge.

Its been a while, however these are the last 2 prefab buildings. Again they are a mix of Conflix pieces, random junk and model leftovers, 3D printed parts topped off with a big dose of rivets!

A kind of shop/store

Its taken a while however my first 3 28mm prefab buildings are all finished! It took a long time because of all the details I kept adding to them, but the final result was worth it.

I'll post the next 3 in a couple of days as I'm just finishing off some details. I used some similar colours to my earlier buildings, but I wanted these to look look more dirty and run down, so there is a lot more weathering.

The posters were found on the internet and printed out. I went around the edges of the posters with a felt pen followed by weathering powder to help blend them in.
