    Honestly, my first thought was, "Who and why were these pics of a rusted out old piece of crap posted on this forum?" Then it dawned on me...Fantastic build!

    Jon, you're up to your old tricks again I see . Beautiful work as always mate, well done . Ruined? Maybe, but ruined with style. You keep wrecking them and I'll keep enjoying them. Did you use a paper crimper to do the corrigated iron?

    (P.S. I got my 1st 1/6 figure a couple days ago to go with the Ultra Classic. A Pichen seamless with a little red bikini)

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Dave, the corrugated iron sheets are genuine rusty steel, made from food tins. I just cut open used tins, flattened them and cut them to an appropriate size. Flattening the curved sheets is a bit difficult by hand - itís very easy to fold or crease them, but fortunately I have the ideal tool for the job. Years ago I inherited a Ďboiler rollerí for making HO/OO scale brass loco boilers. I never really expected to use it, but kept it anyway. So far Iíve only used it for rolling up aluminium sections for a scale RC helicopter tail boom, but it is ideal for de-curving food cans.

    Once Iíd got the sheets, I abraded the surface protection with emery cloth, dipped them in salty water and chucked them out in the back garden for a few weeks. Some have been dry brushed with matt green, just to give a bit of variation. They need to be handled with care - the edges and corners are very sharp.

    Other bits in the dio - the rusty bath, bucket and watering can are 1/12 dollís house accessories found, as is, on Ebay - the socket set is from a Tamiya Farmall Relic pit crew set thatís been in my spares box for forty years.

    Good job on acquiring a Phicen, I've got a couple on my Ebay watch list and just know that temptation will win out in the end.

    Regards, Jon
