Made from modular bits I made in general with some Copplestone resin and toxin refinery bits thrown about.

That looks pretty cool. What size is the layout? Are your base sections mdf tiles?

The Table is 10' x 6' and I can cover the lot in various tiles depicting dungeon flooring/flagstones.
I started with the AD&D basic dungeon tile set and now have 3 boxes of the stuff.
They are very nice and you can see the boxes lids and bases used on the raised sections.
The other less glossy stuff is home-made from the cheap artists canvass boards I purchased from "The Works" covered in address labels and then painted grey with dry-brushes of lighter grey and parchment then lined with a black ball-point pen.

The pipelines are made from PDQ rolls my local shop keeps for me, as are the pressure storage vats from bigger till rolls they asked me "Could I use?" So I did.
You can probably play spot the DIY item on most of the rest.

I still have quite a backlog of painting to do on most of it, but just tend to Gunmetal the bulk and go back later when I have an idea.

There is no MDF involved at the moment. Even the baseboards are two 6'x6' chipboard sections covered in green grit paper that act as the table itself.

It does look quite effective though can get slightly over populated in ancillary rubbish which you can only see a bit of in these pictures. (I didn't want to over do the first pictures)

Another couple with a change of the main bits.




The tanks are 99p store plastic big rig trailers with other bits from the spare parts crate added. More upright PDQ rolls and till rolls with Tron action figure bases added and ladders from those Poundland Russian red jeeps slapped on the front.

Again more to do here to pretty it up. But very usable in the short term.

And I do like to get gaming use out of things.

This set up is spectacular.  I can see how you might make it prettier, but there's something about the grubbiness that make it more realistic.  I plan to steal many of your ideas for my Colonial Marines and Blade Runner projects.  Thank you in advance.

If you're talking about the ones with the winches on top?
Would you believe the cargo beds of Fire Engine Trucks from Poundland!
You can also see the Tender sections on the first two photos that came off of them at the left of the photo.

If you mean the kinda walkways they are a mix of lorry chassis parts and toxin refinery bits glued on top.

There are also steps made from painted cheap dominos stacked up!

It was an accident! But I didn't want to waste the bits.

Cracking concept and nicely executed! Which spy-fi/adventure hasn't included a big underground lab at some point?

I would take some of the till tape rolls. Cut them in half lengthwise and put them in the wheel arches between them.
Looking for a set of rules that adaptable for different genres.
