Industrial Control Tower

This new tower design has more options to open up the interior with some double height level supports. This makes it easier to get hands into the tower to get at models and move them around.

The look of the tower with the opened up sides makes for a nice variation on the tower theme.


Ultrasonic Baby!

One of the many dangers of watching YouTube is that you think something someone else has done is a good idea and you decide to give it a go. I was looking for alternative ways of getting the paint off models and there were several references to ultrasonic cleaners.

These things are cheaper than you would think at £20 on eBay. Methylated spirits seems to be the stuff of choice to remove paint and so far the results have been pretty good. So I bought one…

The first model zapped was a really old beakie Imperial Space Marine from the multi part box set from way back in 1988 I think…

It took a bit of extra scubbing with a tooth brush in a bowl of warm water, but it has come out rather well.

The next batch going in are some old Space Wolf Terminators and a number of 1980’s lead Space Marines with various weapons and wargear.

LED Landing Pad

Over the last few weeks, I have been very busy making mdf industrial terrain to fill a 6 x 4 table.

For one of the sections, I decided to add some LEDs, and make a landing platform.

It seems to be a bit brighter than I thought it would be.

But when a nice big flyer is plonked on it, the effect if cool with the lights illuminating the underside of the vehicle.

I may well be adding some more lights…
