I was able to get my yard ornaments clear coated. Most products are from Black Cat Bases. My 8 year old daughter helped base coat the red couch, the matresses, the garbage bags, and she dry brushed the tires too.

Get out your Circus of Power and Social Distortion CDs (or tapes!) and check these out.




And especially for Murph: picture

Quick and dirty painting techniques used. Still have a couple of toilets, the washer the trailer came with, and some other 'stuff' to do, but that will not happen any time soon.

Thanks for looking. I appreciate your comments.

Nice work Jake

Superb! I love the couches ripped down to the padding and foam.

I noticed a few extra stars on the Conf. Battleflag. Which extra states got annexed in this alternate future? grin

Looks great the trailer looks spot on!

Nice work. The ganger on the left in the 3rd picture looks like Hulk Hogan!

Great set up and painted figures, especially the detailing on the accessories, pizza stains on the mattresses. Those are pizza stains? N

Nice touch.

By the way, is that a modern day version of the Confederacy flag? So Texas and Alaska have finally succeeded?


CPT Jake02 Feb 2011 2:28 p.m. PST

The stars on the flag…. Well, I got distracted and lost count as I was doing them. Oops. One of the joys of painting with your daughter is distracting situations occur more than you would like.

I'm trying to think of a good MC name and do the flag on the second trailer as their colors. Don't want to use a real MC name or patch for a variety of reasons. Of course, I will not get to the next one for a while, probaly not until after my wife depolys the end of this month.


Edit: I used this as a reference for the flag and lost count ( picture ) That's my story and I'm stickin' widit. (pic at link slightly NSFW)

Nice work Jake – what is the project for?

richarDISNEY02 Feb 2011 2:34 p.m. PST

Soooo…. Jake…. Let me know when you are playing… I'll get a plane ticket!

I love how you did the 'junk'.
Really excellent job!

CPT Jake02 Feb 2011 2:34 p.m. PST

It is going to be (hopefully) used for zombie games, gang fights, cops against crap bags, and any other modern/near future stuff I come up with. I'm going to try to use Modern Havok for a short game of SWAT against bikers to break it in.

Once I get the gas station and the other trailer ready I intend to get out some zeds and survivors.


Ed the Two Hour Wargames guy02 Feb 2011 2:38 p.m. PST

Very nicely done. Excellent!

skinkmasterreturns02 Feb 2011 3:32 p.m. PST

Beleive it or not,Capt Jake got it right when he painted too many stars,at least for the intent of what he's depicting. I've seen it a number of times where whoever designed the flag,bumper sticker,whatever was just into "filling the bar",rather than painting the correct numbers to symbolize the states of the Confederacy.The scary thing is that I've seen places (and people )like that.

I used to work juvenile probation in Walker County, GA.

Those pictures just say "Home visit" to me.

Where are all the unfed dogs?

peterx Supporting Member of TMP02 Feb 2011 5:13 p.m. PST

Excellent trash!

Hitman02 Feb 2011 5:40 p.m. PST

Awesome!! I agree with MJS…get some mangy looking dogs, or perhaps the mastiffs from Warlord games…they would certainly add even more character to your classics!!

Thanks for sharing.

GoGators02 Feb 2011 6:18 p.m. PST

I love the couches!

Luckyjoe02 Feb 2011 7:34 p.m. PST

Fantastic stuff!

Personal logo Rebel Minis Sponsoring Member of TMP02 Feb 2011 7:37 p.m. PST

Awesome! Great work!

JRacel02 Feb 2011 7:44 p.m. PST

Absolutely fantastic work! Those folks could live in any of the numerous trailer parks around here in Georgia.

Needs at least 2 or 3 broke down Camaros, 1970's models.
And car seats, scattered here and there, plus beer bottle piles and piles broken lawn mowers.

Don't forget to 'plant' flowers in the toilet.

Steve Hazuka03 Feb 2011 3:48 a.m. PST

still no Pitbulls though.

CmdrKiley03 Feb 2011 9:15 a.m. PST

Great works, the couches look awesome!

Zenwired03 Feb 2011 12:27 p.m. PST

Those folks could live in any of the numerous trailer parks around here in Georgia…

Or around where I live: central New York. Yes, even with the flag. I'll never be able to wrap my head around that one.

Inspirational stuff, CPT Jake – now I know what to do with my Plasticville trailers. Thx!

Now if I could only find an Earl and Randy figures!

Love the heart Tatoo… ;)

CPT Jake07 Feb 2011 3:49 a.m. PST

I thought that was a cool touch.

Legion 408 Feb 2011 7:27 a.m. PST

Very Nice !!! Very realistic !!! Some times in my line of work I comes across such things, in Southern OH, West VA and Western PA … I try to spend as little time as possible in those "areas" ! huh? I just hope I don't hear banjos !!!

Their was a Trailer Park in Moab Utah years ago that looked very much like your's. It's uncanny how you got the flavor just right!
