Repair shop finished. It's the Leven IND16 Joinery shop, but now functions as a tool and repair shed for the farm. Container is from Old Crow, junk in the back is from various bits from the sparesbox, and the barrels (which you can hardly see) are from Heroics and Ross ( I think)
Still clueless how to do other stuff like a Autobahn or even decent roads, but hey, I'll build that bridge when I get there.

And number 2 is finished, a bit wider, and covered with plastic and tires. So many tires......they were round bits of a Airfix kit in my spares box, and had to sand them all to get a better tire shape etc. Never again, as it just hurt too damn much after finishing the last. And then 2 wheels from my bits box that came from God knows what. 1/72 tank and aircraft kits make great donors for wheels of various shapes. Anyhow.....done. plasticcard, air drying clay, tisue paper and glue, with some tufts and weathering powder. It looks loose, but trust me, 3 coats of pigment fixer on it, they are not going anywhere (famous last words)

And it is time for another 50 cent challenge!

Varnished, labelled and ready for the table. Someday. Great trial for other ships, not sure when I will get to them though....
Original model is a Ground Zero Games FT338C Tradewind II class short hauler I ought a couple of years ago, for which I purchased another set of containers, that I pinned into place....and there it languished for quite a while. I can't remember when I picked it up again and just started adding bits to make a really scruffy trader that evolved into a Ork ship....but here she is: Da Bloo Toof. (yes, it's a joke)
