First were some witches hats, because in the smoke, gas, and blood fueled ultra-violence of this post-apocalyptic roller derby, someone spent time before the starting horn to set out traffic hazard cones. Getting ripped apart by .50 cal shells or having a 2.75" rocket detonate your fuel tank is one thing, losing traction on a slippery part of the course though? Not on!
|Garish plastic cones, stripped of the sticker, stuck them to a washer and added some sand, and finally masked with some thin tape.|
|A spray of black undercoat, in retrospect I should have bent a few of these up.|
|Peel the tape off, and now we have added safety!|
Next up I took a plastic gas tank, glued it to a MDF coaster, added a plastic street sign (which I bent up with a pair of pliers), and some left over pieces of MDF railing from my Spartan Terrain sets.
|Stupidly I undercoated the whole thing red. Realising shortly afterwards this wasn't what I was after I resprayed in black.|
|The rust was a light brown wash dribbled over the top and around all the edges and valves. With a final coat of Tamiya rust weathering powder in patches all over.|
|Originally I did a cross on the sign, but wasn't thrilled with it. I decided to paint over it...|
|That seems more appropriate.|
