Buying the Farm: Machine shop finished

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.

Buying the Farm: Feed Bunker 2 finished

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)

 Completely scratchbuilt. (well, 4 bits of plasticcard, a bit of clay and some tissues and glue....not exactly rocket science, is it? ;) )

50 cent challenge - Matchbox Tractor

And it is time for another 50 cent challenge!

So we take one used and abused Matchbox Lesney tractor (stand in picture as I forgot to photograph th edonor that I picked up at a flea market some time ago) and decided it would make a excellent scenic piece to go with my (soon to be delivered) farm. So.....

Buying the Farm: Vehicle shed finished

 And after 3 coats of varnish, the vehicle shed is done :) I used some Army Painters small bushes I picked up in a sale a while back, they work rather nice, and some Mininatur moss pads.

WIP vehicle shed (for The Farm)

 I'm working on some other scenery and had some free time, to basecoated the vehicle shed and started work on it. As I'm going for the weathered tin shed look grey primer works great to get work done quickly. A ton of washes and stippling and blowdrying later.....ready for varnish (tomorrow) and finishing (somewhere next week, rather busy atm with stuff for the attic and volunteering work.

Da Bloo Toof

 Right, the Ork Transport (supply ship, Gargant transport, free trader that interacts with the Imperium, who knows?) Da Bloo Toof....is done.

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)
