Black Dog HQ landing pad scenic WIP

16 Dec

Every time I walk past the HQ model of the Black dog building I made, I get the urge to start expanding the scenery how I had intended to originally. I do then, realise that this kind of thing needs time devoted to it.

Yesterday, I had a couple of hours spare to get something going again with the Black dog terrain set/board. You will probably remember the junk shuttle I started a while ago. Well, this piece is part of my intended expansion for the HQ facility. Lets face it, every business needs a handy transport link nearby to allow its employees to get to work on time!

As you can see from the pics, all I have got done so far is  getting a few dark grey coats on the board, plus a liberal spray of silver paint to highlight (after these were taken, I gave it a wash of black to tone down the shininess of both the shuttle and the board)

The shots are there to show how the bits are intended to fit together. Also, I would like to point out that the security wall around the pad’s compound has now been altered to acommodate an additional entrance that leads nearer to the HQ, and allows access for troops to move through the models more realistically (you’ll see that in future updates)

As you can see, there is a shed load more stuff to do on this piece, but it’s shaping up fine. I’ll post the next shots once I get some of the details added (barrier, ticket booth with robo teller, more tubing/wires, more lighting, refuelling aparatus, signage etc etc…)

      Thanks!! I love adding lights to models now, with technology being both cheap and small nowadays, Its great as I have no electronics skills and these little pre-wired led lights give me the opportuniity to add all sorts of lighting effects to my models! the spotlights are made from some bits from poundshop torch/lighters!
