A proof of concept to see what I could do with a couple of plastic soda bottle caps and some other odds and ends. Not bad, but I need to play around with the idea before I start commit to making a big batch as scatter terrain.

Very nice scratchbuild. +

I think it has lots of possibilities. You mention adding to it; perhaps heavy copper wire as tubing from one bead to another, or even a longer piece of wire to connect to a second drum. Perhaps some sort of safety or warning markings, so we all know it can go boom! under the right circumstances.

Good job!

You're on to an idea worth stealing!

Thanks, y'all!

I like the idea of adding wire to the build. There's some warning decals hiding around here somewhere, but things like that refuse to turn up until after I need them.

Steal away! Just be sure to show off your take on the idea so I can return the favor.
