Nice job, Editor. I've painted up several of the SAM and AA artillery sites and an airfield from Fight's On. They are simple but effective.

I'm getting ready to do some modern air-gaming, so picked up a number of useful items from Fight's On with the plan to paint them on an "as needed" basis. My first "need" was a SAM site in the desert, so I've painted one up:

Unpainted and painted SAM site

As you can see, the pieces are suited for use on a hexagonal grid - though in my case, they'll actually be more like markers on a gameboard. Here's an extreme close-up:

My painting scheme was simple: brown base, dark brown wash, tan drybrush, then the details were painted in colors that would stand out.

I'm not sure what scale the Fight's On scenics are, but I think it's safe to say that they're "way down there on the ground" scale. grin Here's what they look like next to a 3mm jet model that I'm working on:

And, for reference, next to 28mm and 15mm figures (which you'll see more of in future TMP articles):

I look forward to painting more of these up, in various landscapes, as the campaign proceeds.
