15/18mm Scale Pipelines
« on: January 30, 2023, 06:46:48 PM »
Hello again all,
Here is my latest bit of terrain.
Generic Pipelines. More pics at link.
https://castrarunis.blogspot.com/2023/01/18mm-pipelines.html








Various bits & bobs used including spice containers, a/c drain pipes, 3D printed resized pipes & fittings , balloon 6mm diameter tubes & card.
 The computer terminals are from Antenocities. 5mm ( hole size) chicken wire was used for the railings & ladders.

White PVA was mostly used with CA for the magnets.

Card bases and I stuck mosquito netting to it to add texture.

Almost all the bits have 4mm magnets. Almost all because I made a mistake with the orientation of some of them 😒  ( now I've made a jig with 2 magnets & sprue to avoid just this ... about time !!! )
Anyway, to counter act this I used the heads of old 4 to 5'' nails ( cut down to size ) & 1 euro cents stuck to some of the pipes or terrain.

I plan to use these with my power station

and my guard tower & fence

You kill me WM  :D :D :D.

Thank you for the kind words.

I think I will paint it the same greyish tones as the power stations with colourful signs here & there.

Excellent! That is a marvelous piece of terrain. It looks awesome, but as a bonus has great tactical effects with all the different layers. Top notch!

Thank you for the kind words.
Glad you like them.

15/18mm has given me the possibility to build models which would have taken a warehouse to store if done in 28/32mm ;D

Will post more pics asap...

Thanks Dan.

here they are all finished.
I tried something different this time. Instead of starting with a dark undercoat I started with a silver one. Then added dark green, blue black, brown etc.
More pics at link.

Thanks for your comments.

Thank you WM, Glad you like them.

Indeed.
The only downside I found is that you have to fiddle around with all the different small pieces ( since they are 15mm)
until you get something you like. In 28mm this wouldn't be a problem ( as stuff is larger ) but in 15mm it just might be a good idea to
glue several pieces to each other. Quicker to setup up but less modularity. :(

Have to take pics with the power station next.

Might also do ruined or vegetation overrun pieces.

That looks amazing.  Perfect for sci-fi battles not only for the looks but because of all the cover and so forth.

Wow, that terrain looked impressive enough unpainted, but now it's exceptional! It really does look the part.
