Thanks for the compliments.

Here are some WIPs again. Anyone who's seen my Jaffa Lost city bits in PULP will know of my love for using Jenga blocks.

Here are some Techno-steps smaller than my others. Plus another PDQ roll and Poker chip thingy?

PDQ Poker chip thingy!

Small Jenga blocks from Poundland at 48 in a box and 6 to a set of these steps.

Haven't posted here in a while!

But I had a look at an Apple Juice carton closer and had an idea!

Always looking for doors to separate corridor or rooms from the complex. I have started taking these off of certain juice cartons.

Add a wheel to the handy little pin locator that they have and presto! Bulkhead door!
Just stick to base of your own choosing!
Painted very roughly as I did about two dozen of these.

Locking side with added sealing wheel!


Outer side nice and smooth!


Very useful and recycling is the key!

That's an awesome idea. I have a bunch of snaps that would work great for the wheels that I picked up from the dollar store.
Looking for a set of rules that adaptable for different genres.

Re: My Secret Base. A bit more. Some Docks/Plinths/Platform Type things?

Hopefully this'll be inspiring to some of you?

I found these Four-in-a-row games in Poundland bought a couple then took them apart.
Turned the counter tray catcher things upside down and painted them in a concrete style.

They will make raised plinthy type dock areas as you can see.





I can mingle them into the base.

The actual game part of the toy has the round open holes to see the counters within (Not Pictured yet!) will possibly be painted black then gun metalled to make some sort of vat grill type flooring! I've not decided yet!

It has been a while for this thread for me?!?!

I picked up some Triang railway bridge piers from a toyfair and then wondered what I could do with them? o_o

Out of the 6 piers 2 are a bit too deep for this use. But I will find something to do with them!

Making them into Lab furniture, such as bookcase and experimental/research tables using bits from my spares box and Ainsty retro monitors seemed the best thing.







Lots of circuit jumpers, components out of old PC's cut from the circuit boards and even some other railway carriage bits added to fill up the tables. Yet to be painted but I think they'll add to my base! :D
