More 4ground.....

It rained today, so I built this.


I feel like I'm turning into a machine or maybe some sort of conveyor belt. If you have read some of the posts I put up earlier this week you would have seen that I recently, yesterday, finished building a 4ground Sci-fFi building.

Well if that wasn't enough I decided to start and some how finish this building as well.


Back of the box

You can see in this picture that I started to build the ground floor, I actually started this last night at about 8pm. So I had a small head start on the work that I completed today.

View through the front door into the ground floor.

1st floor and outer staricases




Ground floor from a higher view, you can see the cells and trap door.

Rickety staircase that leads from the 1st to 2nd floor.
You can also probably make out the door to the latrine is open.

And a birds eye view of the bog, watch out below.

Rifts - Telecoms tower

Telecoms tower


I set up these pictures for fun and to quickly showcase some of the miniatures, buildings and other cool 28mm stuff I have been prepping for Rifts.












4ground telecomms building - finished

Finally.....


I have completed this task and yes the feeling is good! I'm very happy to have finally completed the work to get this beauty finished, so here are some more pictures.

I would happily buy another one of these kits, the MDF is thick enough to give you real support when you are gluing, fixing and pinning the structure together and the instructions are very easy to follow. 

The only negative thing that I would say about this particular kit is that when you are building certain parts of the kit the parts you are looking for can be found across 2 or 3 different spru's. This isn't a major gripe at all, but you have to accept that some patient searching for small parts is necessary.

Any way, as promised here are the final pictures.


Completed kit in all of its glory.


Satellite and telecomms relay tower.

Top view of the roof, complete with roof hatch and aircon inlets. Fresh, cool air is very important in the dark future of humanity so hopefully these will be working.

Rear hatch to the storage bay.

Front door which leads into the building.
For those of you who have keen eyes, you'll notice I put the right window pane on the wrong way round.
It is true I am not a window fitter.

Vistani.....and all the trimmings.! Below are pictures of some models that I painted this week, these have been on my "to do"...
