I thought I'd share a scratch built terrain piece I've made as part of a credit card challenge I took part in on a facebook group.
Its a simplified V1 launch site with the design based on a Flames of War model. Its not true 6mm in size, probably closer to 2mm but its intended as a terrain piece and I have designs on using it as an objective in a 6mm game.
Everything is scratch built and in total probably took me about 7 – 10 hours. Fuller details on how I made it can be found at allhellletloose.co.uk

This is built on a credit card! It is not just the modelling but the photography of something that size that gets me. The trees and foliage too. The ramp is a cable tie…I just knew it something very familiar. I used several only two days ago.

This is really imaginative

Ditto with Deadhead. Great idea and execution!

Thanks for the thumbs up chaps!

Deadhead the trees are twisted copper wire with woodland scenic coarse turf (a mix of middle green and dark green) with fine turf blended mix sprinkled over them.
