Even though it is nowhere near finished yet, the basketball hoop does it for me. :D

This looks great so far and the attention to detail is impressive.

After a good start there was a long pause because I was busy with other things.

I picked the project up again on Sunday and made a corner of a US Vietnam base with XPS foam.

I tried to texture this with a a hot air gun but the results were unexpected and frustrating.
Gaps are forced open and joints peel  back.



Here is the finished layout before painting. I covered the surface with ground cork.



This is the last post before submission. More after the competition is finished.

Now I am knocked out of the BSC 2022 competition, I can show some pictures.

Here is the whole thing with some 28mm Rubicon figures and Bob Mack 3D printed M113 ACAV and M551 Sheridan.



And here is a close up of the rest area part.

That is brilliant - I might steal your idea for a sci-fi setting.  8)
