Hi guys, thought I’d share some terrain stuff I’ve been working on. I’ve been looking at mdf terrain for wasteland stuff and Serissa Precision have some good table fillers and pretty cheap too …and they have a retro 50’s Americana section that is absolutely on point for Fallout.
I picked up a few bits and I’ve been working on their Airstream Caravan model. It’s only £8 quid and looks dead right. Bit of a tricky build though.
Lots and lots of stuff to glue.
The cardboard skin glues onto the ribs.
You have to carefully score each line with a blade to make a bend line…
Then glue onto each rib. I used PVA and probably should have used superglue. I made a bit of a pigs ear of glueing up and was running a real risk of turning the skin into a paper mache mess. I had to walk away and let it go off a bit, then come back to it and then later, fix bits that weren’t sticking with superglue. If I was hoping for a perfect caravan model, this would have ended up in the bin. Fortunately, I was looking for a 200 year old wasteland wreck …so the mistakes just add to it. Well, that’s my excuse anyway.
I got there in the end and not too bad if you dont look too close.
Then painted with a silver base coat. Looks like a childs toy at this point…
But a bit of weathering and it’s pretty good for £8 quid, some time, some paint and a bit of PVA…
FYI, I made the base, you dont get one with the model.
Check out their stuff …they have a pretty cool 50’s school bus that would fit right in too, and some buildings that look like they are straight from Sanctuary Hills.
