I used a couple of these great door and widow kits from Laser Cut Card on a couple of card stock boxes from Hobby Lobby. The effect is great and I will be making more of these.

I found this stuff a few weeks back in Joanne's fabrics and thought it would look good as a jungle vine.

For a long time I've had an idea about creating a futuristic shanty slum. The concept is that cheap, modular, habs are shipped to planets for terra formers, miners ect. After a while, maybe these clusters of temporary homes become abandon or forgotten due to the economy collapsing, or war or something else equally devastating. People start doing what they need to survive and a sci fi slum is created.
I sourced some recycled materials for the main body of the habs. Mainly dairy tubs that are square. For the details I Purchased several different kits in the "do it yourself" section over at Laser Cut Card. Great kits, I highly recommend them, but you'll see that in the pictures. I tried to keep them somewhat the same, i.e. modular, but make them look as he residents have repaired or personalized them over time.
Some of the card details I made, and some are the "bonus" pieces you get from the Laser Cut Card kits. What do I mean by bonus?
Here are a few more examples from thier door range, and their AC units.
Thanks for looking, comments welcome!

These three bikes are for my bigger scaled 28 mm games.
I really liked how the blue one came out, but as usual it was my least favorite when I stated building these.

As I mentioned in this post , I was bit by the Mad Max bug and have been sucked into the world of Hot Wheels conversions. Now, I'm not giving up my 28mm scale Car Wars. I am adding in another (sigh) layer of my hobby. So here are my first attempts.
The left one is a popular Hot Wheels car with the hittle rack removed and some Epic 40k bits put in its place. (My kids call them hittles, not missles. If you say you are shooting your missles, they will miss.) The right car is stock except for the paintjob and a piece of card to cover a keyhole launcher in the back.
These are Hot Wheels motorcyles thar are actually in 1/64 scale, unlike the ones that come in the blister pack. I don't know alot about them because i got them from a thrift store. The rear tire was a magnet. I guess they went with some sort of stunt track. I took the magnet out because they kept sticking together.
