Added some more bits, & given it a first spray.
This is of a 'plastic coating' aerosol.
When it is dry I'll probably spray it black, attach the sub assembly then
it will be on to painting/finishing.

Hey Pete,
Stick a smoke funnel on the back and we get a VSF objective to battle over.

That is looking great!

\That is something I didn't think of; the modeling styrene will take basic spray primer perfectly fine but the LED housing and other bits may need a different primer coat.

Not that I thought about it. On a recent visit to a Sister-in-law (near Chester) we like to
visit the '50p Shop' A real old fashioned emporium. Sadly no longer is everything 50p.
Same as PoundLand not all things a pound. I do find bargains. The last visit I picked up
some cheap rattle-cans, Ł1.50 for the plastic coating one. :)

Last visit it was some modern army trucks (see my thread on Workbench)

Second spray, black this time.
Some piping added, most were cast 28mm spears which I replaced with long pins.
I keep saying, 'I don't throw things away'  :D

Thanks. I would like to say it is denuding my stock of 'Interesting Bits' but the
truth is that I'm not even scratching the surface.

I know this to be very true. He gave me  a load of bits that I filled three 40 litre tubs with ( not yet used)

That is a really good looking err thing.  lol
I'm curious about the paint scheme. Is it easier or harder choosing colors without knowing what this is?

My default system for painting unusual things (i.e. not things like Napoleonic Uniforms)
is to just take a colour/some colours out & play with them. ;)
This does several things:-
It uses up those colours that still have fat tubes of paint,
Lets me experiment with different effects/colour mixes, &
as I hate wasting those last bits of paint on the palette.
I get some interesting washes as I thin it down.

Having said all that, my original idea was for...something that would
fit in the Star Wars Universe.  It will therefore probably be white.  lol

Looks like an emplacement of some sort. Definitely cool scratchbuild however!
