  1. It's something I made up. Not ALL businesses in the Fallout universe reference nuclear power or "foreshadow" that the world's going to blow up in a nuclear apocalypse, but quite a few do. Along those lines, I've been straining to come up with goofy names for made-up businesses. In particular, one of my mini-goals was to use up all the oddball out-of-scale figures that came with a "Down on the Farm Toob" I picked up at JoAnn Fabric (or two of them, actually -- needed two cow heads to make a Brahmin!). The chickens were used as mascots for a joint I named "Bomber Wing." The pig?
  2. Good grief, all those fine little details, right down to the FRIES! 😄 Amazing!
  3. Wow! Those conversions work surprisingly well! It's amazing what addition of a beard and a few other details can do. I really like the touch of the pipe the gnome on the viewer's left has.
  4. Awesome! I've done a few HeroQuest vault top + Hirst Arts Gothic blocks for the sides as well. 😄 They seem to work perfectly for that. (Those old HeroQuest "magic tome" and "vault" pieces were awesome, and I keep finding uses for them, with modification. The weapon racks of course are great as-is, and have a lot of repainting possibilities for variety, thanks to the shields. The cabinet/shelf plastic toppers have gotten a lot of re-use as well, sometimes minus the cardboard and with the hole on top filled in.)
  5. I love the shape of this for transforming into some sort of airship or "Starjammer" style aether-ship. It obviously has "pirate-ship" cues, but the bulged-out hull shape looks off the beaten path for anything to actually sail the high seas, in such a way that it seems to give permission for it to be something that FLIES instead. I could even imagine taking this toy and putting a bunch of "nacelles" or "anti-grav emitters" or other such technobabbly stuff on the lower hull (rings with bright "ion blue" glow-gradient painted inside) to transform this into some sort of "techno-hovercraft" and
  6. "If you're close enough to read this, you're already dead." 😄
  7. Wow, all around! I love the angular exterior contrasted with what looks like plush inner furnishings. I could SO imagine this as a prop from some 1980s "dystopian future" film -- the exterior being a relatively simple model with lots of flat surfaces either because they needed to make it possible to do some early-CGI "flying car" cut-scenes (hence a very simple model), OR because this thing was a set prop built up with pieces of plywood built up over some real-world thing used on site. I especially love the "'80s flying car" wheel/nacelles: Those definitely remind me of the close
  8. One thing I'm curious about: How did you do the embossed "FRESH NOODELS" lettering (with those letter tips that look like they're falling/peeling away)? Was this repurposed packaging? Pressed foam? 3D print? Vacu-form plastic? 2D painting with trompe l'oeil effect that's just fooling my eyes? 😉,
  9. Here's the link for the model on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2820529 (Designer: "Urlock_Gaur," AKA Matthew Rumsey.) IMHO, this model works well with PLA filament. The pieces don't really need rafts (since both roof and main body are flat-bottomed), but it could still use some supports for the windows, doorway, and outer ledges/counters.
  10. I wanted to get the look of the "pieced-together panels" texture of the diners in Fallout 4, but the model has a fairly smooth rooftop. In order to get the "panel" look, I used some misprinted laser-printed labels -- they would normally be trash, but, hey, they're still sticky, and a sticker has a bit of THICKNESS, so I just tried cutting sections out and adhering them to the surface on fairly flat or simply-curved places (definitely not the rounded rooftop corners), and then painting over everything. For the interior, I had a few messed-up pieces that I think were meant for couc
  11. 3D-printer model -- model design by Matthew Rumsey; model 3D-printed by Chris Thesing. In addition to the basic model (a very simplistic depiction of the style of "Drumlin Diner" found all over the Boston area in Fallout 4) I was given an extra section of roof that was the result of a misprint. I used some foam (lots of sanding) and epoxy putty to transform it into an extension of the main rooftop, so I'd have an overhang for a drive-through window. The model is very basic in that there's no included furniture, there are doorways on each side (but no doors), and there's no clear place to
  12. Gotta love how this monstrosity has a giant GAUNTLETED FIST ready to punch its way through the necropolis in pursuit of vampiric prey. 😄
  13. Oh, I've definitely gone overboard before, trying to cram too many bits into too small of a space, but I think you've got it just about right. There's enough to look like, "Yes, there would actually be something to buy here," without being packed to the gills. Importantly, the counter-top is mostly clear save for a bag to one side, a register(?) that looks like it belongs there, and a single magazine. I really like the box to one side, oddly enough. It doesn't come across as just some cardstock easily enough cut into a little box shape, but it's got some gradient brown going on, giving
  14. Beautiful! That looks like a pretty convincing blue tarp up top! 😄 Also, personally, I don't think I'd see this as veering into "diorama territory" unless either: a) It had an incorporated backdrop that would prevent it from being worked into a tabletop setup; b) It had permanently affixed characters (someone tending the stall, a dog standing there). (And sometimes I'll still use pieces that go under "A" or "B" for scene-setting. I can just tell the players, "No, there isn't really a guy standing there. You scared him off when you started shooting the place up. I'm not going
  15. This looks like one of those fiddly little constructs that would be a nightmare to assemble (tweezers required!), and require great care when handling and storing (don't want any little bits to fall off!) but would definitely command my attention if I saw such a delicate piece in a miniature scene. 🙂 I look forward to see where you go with it! (Would be nice to see a mini for scale....)
