That really is something very clever, well thought out, and well executed.

Very well done indeed a very interesting diorama.

Happy modelling

Hi all here is tonights progress.

I decided that this scrapyard should have everything including a kitchen sink, but I don't have a 1/16th sink,so I devised a cunning plan to make one.
first I measured my sink then a made a 1/16th former.

then I cut a piece of ply 2mm bigger than the former (I will be using 2mm plasticard as my hot air gun has bit the dust I will be using a blow torch so need a fairly robust piece of plastic)for pushing the plastic over the former.

oops I did not heat the plastic up enough so only got it half way down before the plastic cooled down, then getting it off I snapped it so I had to make another one.

unfortunatlely I snapped this one getting it off as it was so tight, but this is what I got


and with a bit of cutting and drilling this is what i got

then when painted and added to the scrap yard here is the effect
