Love all of it--very true to life in the details, very evocative. But I especially love the water tanks--does the water look as great in person as it does in these pictures? What's your technique?

It sure does. Several coats of gloss over a coat of near black paint is all there is to it.

I had a go at making a fridge and a toilet bowl. Neither came out quite the way I wanted but I didn't want to let them go to waste so based and painted them with a HO scale door for added colour. I'll be making more refridgerators and assorted items, might get them casted up as well.

I am really enjoying reading (and looking) at the updates to this tread. Some really nice stuff.

Shelter off a Military Wheels AS-3 truck kit. I picked up 2 of these trucks cheaply at Crisis. I'll propably do something with the chassis and maybe build the other one properly, who knows :)









A nice addition for my Scrapyard/Fallout/STALKER collection.

Looking very good. What minis are you using with it all?

Anything I can find  and convert to fit my needs. I should have a few done before the years end.

Very nice!

The only problem is I have come to expect this standard from everything you do now!  ;)

Whats next?

Propably just some smaller pieces, the focus is currently on building more then painting.

Well I'll be looking forwards to seeing more then. Having just started WWII in 20mm, seeing all your 20mm stuff really makes me want to get going. Pity there isn't much sci-fi stuff around in this scale though as it really does seem to be the perfect balance of scale vs size as opposed to 15mm and 28mm; and you go to show that 20mm can easily be as well painted as much of the 28mm stuff we see around.
