Well I'm not really interested in fifty shades of gray, so there will be colors  lol

I can paint the canvas on this pink  ;) :

Also this shows why things go slowly... I spent about 45 minutes on the left side with the fastening pegs and the wire, and you can barely see it when the thing is in place... Sometimes I have to remind myself I'm not building a diorama  o_o I would love to add a lot more little details to the build, but I really have to start painting.

The last door in place


And a final look with and without the structures.


Excuse the half done figures, only they were at hand for scale.

The only thing left is to make some fences for the ground level, so the doors on the container make sense and to build a big sign. I will give up the terrace on the top of the container, it is not necessary. Also without it, and not fixing the container to the base I can use this as regular living place, not just a motel. And the container can be used for other setups as well.

So I almost forgot two details while painting the thing.

One is the two fence sections and the other is the sign for the motel.
I quickly put these together yesterday and primed them before work today.

Hopefully we will have a slow day and I can paint these at my workplace. It shouldn't be to hard, just some quick silver drybrush, washes and weathering.

The sign is a bit more complicated, but I will try to cook something up with masking tape and my borrowed airbrush.

The bad news is I will have to make the entry photo with lamp lights so I'm sure it will turn out terrible o_o

On the other hand I'm really pleased with the end result. The painting turned out better than I thought I can manage. :)

And received too - I like these vertical features and am now planning one to complement by incomplete entry for this year.  :D

Wow...this is amazing! I have to know...has it seen use as a gaming board? I think it would be so amazing to see used on the tabletop.

Thanks.  :)
Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to use it in a game yet. I started to build the other two sections but my regular job and some commissioned mini painting got in the way and the project is on hold for now. If everything goes well I can start working on it again next week.
Once the extra sections are finished I will definitely play a game with them, even if it's just a one of game.
