V cool, Stellan.

PS know what you mean about Miniart – instructions pristine CAD but you wonder if anyone actually tried to build the kit before releasing it, the tolerances are so keen. Their tram was an exercise in attrition.
Hmm I would have guessed the tram is a tricky one. I´ve been thinking of getting it but suspected it would be too much for me in the end to really enjoy it. I´m in a quick-n-fun period now.

Well done….flat tires and all. Where on earth did THAT idea come from? Chickens! Woulda thunk it!? 🙂
Thank you, Craig. The idea of making it into a chicken coop? Not sure…it started out as a paint test project and the idea evolved ito something more as I went along. I planned to make a base and a figure for it as well but I will leave it for now.

Out to pasture! Second use as a chicken coop?
Recycling isn´t a new invention 🙂
Ulf Lundberg said on December 6, 2016
Is this your latest build? Haven’t seen it before. Great job as usual.
No, the tri-cycle Gun truck is the latest one. This one has been done for a while but I couldn´t decide if I should add a base and figure etc…it will be like this for now. Thanks, Ulf. Much appreciated.

Well done! I would only say – having been around chickens – that they need a bit more “weathering!” In fact, I have an appointment tomorrow with a chicken processing plant… (not taking anything at all away from the model – it is gorgeous, and the idea with the chickens is great!)
Thanks, Greg, very kind of you. Maybe not weathering but feathering…a bit more shadows would do the trick.

Great stuff sir.

Thank you, Mr Royes.

Stellan, I really like it. Nice work, and I actually knew people who had chicken coops like that, so it doesn’t look all that unusual to me !.
Thank you, Terry. Sure there a re a lot of strange chicken coops like this.

Looks great already – placed on a small dio would even top it.
Many thanks, Hans. Will see what I can accomplish a bit later.

Great idea, Stellan, in fact, an eggxcellent idea!
I tried to make an egg out of a feather…or something. Thanks, George.

Excellent build and idea. Love it !
Stellan Schroeder Englund said on December 8, 2016
Thank you, Bernd. Nice waking up in the morning to read your comment.

Great idea and superbly executed, Stellan!
Did you make those flat tires (tyres) yourself or are they aftermarket?
Thanks, Anders, appreciate it a lot! After market, me? No. I cut the lower bit off and heated the remaining bit to make it look slightly sagged. The effect should be better looking if slightly hidden in tall grass as I originally intended.
