Machinehall part 1

After many days of delay I am now finished building my machine-hall.
When I started building this ruined machine-hall I didn´t expect it to 
be so much details eventhough I had a sketch to start with.
Working with the model was fun but to summarize, the final details are
everything. When I started building the machine-hall I wanted to
make a model that could be placed together with my factory and also
act as a stronghold when playing a skirmish-game.
The tower is modular and can be built low or high and also be completely
removed.The exterior of the tower is built using coffee-stirrers and
its frame is cardboard. The hall is made of polystyrene.The walls have
a center made of light-weight poystyrene and all the bricks are cutouts
from high denisty polystyrene.
The baseplate is 5mm mdf with sand glued with PVA.
The pipes are made from black plastic straw and the big pipe is also
a straw made of cardboard.
The ventilation-cylinders are taken from the corks that comes together
with the bay-food Ellas kitchen. :)
Finally I have made a big opening on the floor situated under the roof
and this will be used for a additional companionway that will connect
this building to another. This addional detail was not original planned
for my project but I think this will be a strategic position for a sniper
or a scout when playing skirmish.Next step will be to paint the
whole model. I hope these pictures will inspire others! 
Have a nice weekend to you all.

    1. Thankyou very much Andras. I am now painting my piles of rubble and these will complete the industrial scenery very good.

  6. Great use of materials. It should fit in well with all your other scratch-builds and will make a great centrepiece,

    1. Thankyou very much Joe.As a stronghold I think I am spot on.When I planned the building I put in a lot of windows and door-ways to cover many types of scenarios and when it is finished I am glad that I did eventhough it was a lot of work.

  7. Love it! Brilliant use of available material.

    1. Indeed Thomas. As you say here in the north: man tager vad man haver. :) It will be great fun to test these models in action very soon.Post apocalyptic-games will suit this model very well but I will also use it for 40k and WW2.Tackar och bugar för kommentaren.
