Weigh Station

Recommended Posts

This build had taken me some time to put together. The base is a pic frame mount with poster board foam as ground  base. The electronic ground concrete ground mounts and fence concrete rectangular blocks were both plaster cast and poster board foam cut and hot glued together. Then, I added wall Spackle to cover the joints. The signs were downloaded from the internet and scale to size using a similar WORD like program. The boom setup and detail around, were scratch built using styrene and misc. parts, from my box of tricks.

Awesome work...!   I like to add scale figures to many of my builds..too bad most kits do not come with them they add a realistic touch to them.

Thank you. I quite agree. My problem is figure painting is not my best forte. But I am getting there slowly but surely.

Charles....they did a thing on figure painting here once and in the mag...its helped me some but I have a long way to go yet too on them..and other stuff like weathering.  I really want to start over on my 2 large dioramas I had done once the storm here took out...just have to find what I need to yet.   One was a 60s Gas station using the MRC gas station kit...the other a 1970 car dealership using the same kit.  I had them wired for LED lighting ran on a small battery and made to be placed together as one very large diorama.
