I have seen some really nice detail parts in the LHS. But this stuff is expensive! 55 gallon drums are about a buck apiece. So, I've been trying my hand at building some of this stuff. I would love to see what kind of detail parts you guys build. I need ideas! I will get the thread kicked off with a few things I have built. Remember, I just got started so I haven't done much, mostly just "messin' around" and learning some techniques. All the stuff still needs paint and/or weathering Here is a loading dock with stairs carved out of pink foam, some tanks, a couple of acetylene bottles made out of plastic rod, and a handful of 55 gallon drums that I turned from plastic tube.... chucked it up in a drill motor like a lathe and cut them with the tip of an exacto knife. Only problem is, I made them slightly too big. The drum on the left corner of the loading dock is a drum from a structure kit.
