Its amazing how quickly you breath life into your pieces, that armoured troop carrier was quite a plain piece but now it’s a diorama on its own.

One thing I notice you favour is the generators to run your machinery, but I am surprised (unless I have missed it which is quite plausible) you haven’t done a solar panel based generator.

Once I again I have to ask where are the sand bags placements, the generator, keyboard panel and ammo cases from please ?

I know I ask a lot but you seem to have a knack at finding some lovely pieces


Don’t worry about asking a lot - sharing finds is one of the best bits of the hobby. The sand bags were from either Microart Studios or Maximini but I don’t think you can get them any more - was looking a few days ago. The generator and computer panel are both TT Combat (Troll Trader). They are lovely pieces although you do have to spend a moment stripping the skulls and eagles off the generator. Easy to un-40k them though.

And you are right about the generators. I just love rusty old chuggers, but I have done one with solar panels, below. I need to do a couple more though. This is No. 6 Junktown - the more upmarket end!

Ha ha I did say unless I missed it, I had a feeling you had done some with solar panels but couldn’t remember for sure.

Each piece is mesmerising, will you do a pic of all them together ?

Once again thanks for info comes in handy

I love hoodie dude, he adds so much character to all the scale shots.

Really liking the main gate, is the tank from Old Crow (RIP)? I looks familiar.

Hi KK, yes the vehicle is from Old Crow. I am a real Old Crow fan so I bought loads and have a little stash of them now. This one is a 'Gladius' I think.

Ha ha can’t get over air conditioning units on the cargo containers, really pullling it all together now with the little touches.

The scratch built observation device is nice, I see the GW binoculars and parts from the tank stubber support looks really cool.

It’s great how many chairs you find of different style, I guess these are all o scale ones ?

Ha are those 1/72 scale bottle crates on the table I see there, I think my old man had these they came in three different colours if I remeber correctly, wasn’t there some crates and sacks as well ?

Old crow went out of business though, shame I wanted to get some of their smaller vehicles

Thanks LDD - I get a lot of the chairs from Chinese O Scale suppliers on Ebay - dead cheap - just search for 1/50 scale furniture and all kinds of interesting stuff comes up.. No idea where the bottles came from - just sitting in the bottom of the bits box for ages.

And as for Old Crow, I bought a load of their stuff before they disappeared from sight so I have a decent reserve of vehicles to work my way through in the years ahead. I think I have about 15+ of their vehicles tucked away plus another 10 or so already painted.

Hey LDD, do you mean the Gecko? 4 wheeled utility vehicle? I've got a scout version but not the pick-up version unfortunately.

The paint/weathering is stunning. The attention to detail is very impressive. But, more than anything I love how well thought out everything you make is, everything has a background story.

I can’t keep singing your praises but your work is epic mate and the eye to detail is just fantastic, the weathering on the heli is just mind blowing.

The main gate has come together well and the signage really brings it home.

Looking great as usual. Out of curiosity, are you planning to build a crane to show how all these aircraft were piled on top of buildings and each other?

This is unquestionably one of the best terrain threads I've seen on Dakka. It's on par with the threads I followed for years from people I consider masters of their craft. I cannot remember the last time I saw a thread that had this impact on me. Your creativeness is matched by your ability to express a vision in plastic medium. The detail you have achieved on every piece you've built and painted is advanced so far past the average tabletop standard that it doesn't even look like gaming terrain, it's a competition-grade diorama. That you have maintained this level of detail in construction and painting over a vast area of numerous models is inexplicable to me. Your work is art.

Beautifully and accurately said Skalk, I agree entirely. I still can't figure out if this is for a tabletop game like Fallout or This is Not a Test, or if they are being made as beautiful dioramas without plans for use in a game. Was this mentioned earlier and I missed it?

Hey Syro, thanks. Always been a gamer but since I started on Junk Town I've mostly slipped into making it for the fun of modelling. I still intend to game with it and I'm thinking of trying the new Morphidius rules when they come out. It's built so it can be used, I then add a level of detail which is mostly just for the show. I've got thing about 'bits'.

And Skalk - way too kind, thank you, I've learned a lot making Junk Town and my technique has come on in leaps and bounds, so each time I finish a piece and learn something new I want to make another one to push it further. Glad it's providing some entertainment and thanks for the encouragement.

For Syro, the first of the cranes. Some will be built into the fabric of Junk Twon but this one is mobile. Will add chains and grapple bits once I have painted the main body.






Also did a pile of stuff. You can never have enough piles of scavenged stuff.
