For modern Special Forces vs Pirates and/or Iraqis, gaming, I'm thinking of making a 'GOPLAT" Gas and Oil platform. Has anyone done that before, do you have photos?

I have seen this kit, but its 1/200 scale


I also remember someone did one for Dr Who. Unit vs. Sea Devils I think. This page has a couple pictures


A quick google search found this guy

There's a fantastic oil rig model on display in the Aberdeen Maritime Museum…

Not sure what scale though…..

Nice photos, at least 6 levels to replicate not counting the cranes!
Some of the MDF manufacturers in 28mm have industrial sets with walkways etc………usable as a start and then detail with 1/72 architectures- doors, railings etc
