Here's a question for anyone who's worked on a military base more recently than me (33 years) - I can't recall, but do most US bases have their own garbage pickup crew, or do they contract out  to a local civilian firm like Waste Management? 


Got some N-Scale Dumpsters in today for this project, and trying to figure out how I want to paint them up. 

They have their own.


You also might want to look for some lights to just put up. While it's during the day, thay would have lights both for the roads and to aid in security

Building glued down



Military Police check out a possible issue at the perimeter in their M317 Mamba, while Major Walker watches from across the street with his coffee. Down below, young Ramona is pissed that her friends ditched her after daring her to climb the wall.

I know you already painted your blue metal hangar, but look what I found over the weekend! 

Ooooooh!!! Aaaahhh!  Excellent!

I have more of those buildings to paint, so it's still appreciated.

Picture dump!

Still a bunch of little details that I want to add, but for the most part, it now presents a good chunk of my original vision.


The whole thing:



"Bring her in slowly!"




Ramona hiding from the MPs.  Waiting on some running figures which will represent her friends running away.



Colonel Walker watching the MPs while enjoying his coffee. 



A "behind the scene" look

Very nice. I love the little details, like the drain at the bottom of the downspout.  Ramona needs a tiny cell phone in her upraised hand so she can take a selfie.

Few more details added. Some more shrubs, some trees, Colonel Walker's SUV, a dumpster (not shown) and some ladders. 20230406_224416.thumb.jpg.343ef5613d127d247ee9174ac7894597.jpg





Almost done - I need to pick out and paint up a couple more cars, and then print and add my signage.

You might want to do a few things to shift things somewhat. Mainly using some thinned washes to shift the flocking to a bit more varied and realistic look, same kind of thing with the security track...possibly the pavement and parking area as well for weathering to some extent.
