Yep, I built a mould for the resin wall sections. All other pieces are from my bits box. I bought a lot of model kits the last 30 years. :roll:
Also a lot of pieces from german suprise eggs are included. :wink:

:shock: WOW Heiko you have just totally blown me away, i remember the basic walls and a couple of pieces of the interior from last years German painters con you normally hold when you took a few unexpected sneak pics of my Ventilator.
The ultra fine detail is simply amazeing several of the interior pieces are just fantasic and im about to ask were you got a particular item from and i hope your not going to say from inside a suprise chocolate egg, because with my luck id have to buy and eat about 100 eggs, gain about 60lbs just to find one. :lol:
Mainly the 4th photo from the bottom, has that the lorry lift infront of the two mechs in there bays, id love to get a few of these for my own factory/industrial complex can you remember were you got them from? :D cheers zac

I've seen a version of this previously, but the new pics take it up a notch. Looks excellent and would be a great change of pace to play in.

Sigh. Yet another idea for a project I have no time for.

Really nice. Turn loose a lance or so of light mechs in there and you could chew up alot of opposition.

Joker, I would really like to see a detailed how-to make something like this. I'm just starting off with miniature modeling and I'm looking to learn as much as I can. I'd love to be able to make a piece like this for my gaming table. Any pointers / advice / info on how you built the basic building would be awesome!

For over 30 years I build model kits and have a large bits box from unused parts. I bought some extra 1/300 ship kits and HO building kits for this projekt.

All wall sections were build from plastic sheets and bits.
To save time and money, I build a mould of this wall sections an make resin copys.

You see, very easy. 8) :D
