The next building I have got underway in my post-apocalyptic Junktown is the Armour and Clothing store.

This steals a few themes from Fallout, like the armour workbench and armour stand. The idea is that the store is built from abandoned executive jets, part of the mass exodus away from nuclear war to the remote airfield that grew into Junktown.

This is still very much WIP, and I have just started the long job of painting, but I put up the pre-paint pics for interest.

Lol. I always wondered where Post-Apocalyptic survivors went to get their finely detailed, tailored, shiny black leather Goth garments, with all those zippers and loops and buckles.

Preppers should start dressing like that already, now while the stuff is easily available online. That way they'll get used to the chafing of their leather pants when the you know what hits the fan. :)

PS. And let's not forget the essential PA survivor boots …

Amazing work can't wait to see it painted.

Great details. Straps on the gasmasks!
Love the power armor station.

I have plenty of Goth friends who dress like that already…maybe they know something.

Turbine compressor blades make excellent sword steel, the old F14 compressor blades were basically wootz steel, not sure what the current crop of engines are like. So defunct gas turbines are a massive source of good recyclables.

And they are also an insane way of powering your workshop. Gotta keep the revs low though….

This reminds me of the old fashioned movie sets…no cgi.

Are you gong to weather those planes? You are very good at that….

Anyway….this project and the micromunda project in the 6mm forum are my two favorite projects this year….

Wow. Great stuff. I can't wait to see the finished product.

I loved his previous project. One of my favorites anywhere. Can't wait to see how this one develops.

Right, this one is moreorless done now, although I haven't done a sign yet and I feel like maybe I should. Pics below.

The rust and weathering are stunning!

And yes, it needs a sign. :)

Your stuff is truly amazing work. I have to ask: do you game with these pieces, or just build them as a modeller?

Also, where did you get the power armor frame?

Clan Mac Inactive Member20 Nov 2017 2:09 p.m. PST

Hi Angry Piper – great question. Once I would have instantly said 'yes of course I game with them' but then I realised that of late I have spent much more time building than anything else. I think I may be going through some sort of transformation to semi-modeller status.

I still have the absolute intention to game with all of this, but for now I just keep making more…and more…

The power armour frame is scratch built from a a GW hydraulic ram, some bits of plasticard h-beam and some jewellers chain.

I am a big fan of rust. You make me proud.

Your Kidding16 Dec 2017 6:26 a.m. PST

Great work. How did you do the rust.

I've been away from TMP for awhile, and I am only now/since October working on my post apoc collection. That probably explains why I haven't seen this until now. Just wanted to say this is wonderful work, and I have copied lots of the pictures to go in my post apoc reference folder. Thanks for sharing… great to see work like this. Richard
