Looks like the ruins of some sort of retro-future building.  Like visions of the future from the 60's and 70's.

Crappola. I just trashed a bunch of those last month that I had been hording for years.

Thanks, Guildenstern!     Yes, I had thought about all the ones I had thrown out when I first saw this idea.  It was just luck that I was able to snag some more.

I kind of thought the same thing, VitM.  I think it's all the circles.  

 

Would make a great TARDIS interior as well. :)

It was the bright pastel colors around the circles that really did it for me.

Excellent idea!!

 

I'll just go over to the corner here and kick myself; I also just tossed a bunch of similar items. I knew I could 'use them for something', which is why I kept them in the first place, but then I realized that I'd had them for quite a few years and never used them so I tossed them.

Seems like my timing is impeccable. :wacko:   Let this be a lesson to everyone: never throw anything useful away ever.  ::P:

  • Cool. This is more sci-fi looking than most purpose built terrain.

 

 

Thank you, lowlylowlycook!

This is really too full of awesome, what a great idea!

 

 

Thanks, vegascat!   

 

Over the weekend I used up the remaining frame parts, and created another small ruined building and one larger 2-story ruined structure.

 Fingers crossed that I can spray everything this afternoon or tomorrow.

Interesting idea I will give you that much for sure and a great use of left over scraps that are more often than not just tossed out.

 

Aesthetically they are neat, retro modern type of buildings and I DO like them.  They just wouldn't work for some of the games that I play, too swiss cheese like.

 

That said, I am looking forward to seeing what you do with paint on these.  Some far out future colors?  Solid concrete color?  Pure shiny steel?

      Made a weird little conversion based on my destiny 2 warlock. 
      He's built out of a warlord red army soldier in winter clothing, Mantic gcps arms, soda pop minis head and other random bits.

      A pair of speed painted 3d printed robots I completed during my 4th of July Paint Binge.  I found the GW Contrast paints to be very good at covering large smooth surfaces easily.  The red one was from a KS project by EC3D. (and yes, it's missing an arm) I am not sure where my husband found the other one, but maybe Thingaverse.

      A line of concrete barricades from Secret Weapon.  I had fun painting them to look dirty and battered.

      Story
      Welcome to our newest Kickstarter! You'll notice this one is a little different. In this Kickstarter we are offering the STL Files of some of our classic models for you to print on your home 3D printers. These files, created and designed by John Bear Ross, offer tons of combinations and entrance into an amazing realm of sci-fi models. These models come scaled in 15mm AND 28mm!
      Now, keep in mind, these are for personal use, not for commercial or resale. We own the copyrights and designs but for the sake of this Kickstarter, we are allowing the files to go to you, our loyal supporters.
      So why are we doing this Kickstarter?
      Short answer…We are raising funds to increase our in-house printing capabilities. This will allow us to develop more detailed models, models in larger scales, and bring out even more product lines. Rebel Minis is growing and we want you guys to be part of it.
      But we can’t do it without you, so please consider pledging, and spreading the word!
      Thank you,
      Mike and JBR
      The Reward
      We have only one. ALL the files listed to be available for one pledged amount.  You get the files to everything you see scaled in both 15mm and 28mm.
      Your pledge of $40 gets the whole kit n’ caboodle.  Once again, this is for PERSONAL USE! You do not have permission to distribute, copy or sell the files. *C'mon man, you know that ain’t cool!*
      Stretch Goals
      If we reach our goals, we will unlock stretch goals. These files will be added to the reward and download at the same time.
      Delivery
      After the Kickstarter ends, and if it is successful, you will get a survey to confirm your email. Later, when they are ready, we will email you the links for download.
      The Files
      Look at all these Glorious Files, they can be yours!
      Can I print the weapons and vehicles on FDM and Resin Printers? 
      Yes, everything should be printable on both types of printers found in common use. Most of our prints are optimized for desktop resin printers like the Anycubic Photon or the Elegoo Mars, but FDM should be able to support most builds. If we encounter files that are too large for resin printers, we will happily go back and supply sliced and optimized files to be printed in smaller chunks
