T-34 Tanks

Red tanks roll past the commissar.

Tank after tank.

Row after Row.

A mighty torrent of armor.

Each row is a company of tanks!

Bugs and Troops

Army men vs rhinoceros beetle.

Massive firepower!

The bug approaches.

Some rounds bounce off the armor.

60mm troops from MPC, Tim Mee and Safari.

Shooting from close up.

Pumping rounds in stops the bug.

Crawling figure.

Army Men

Classic 60mm Army Men from Tim Mee and MPC.

New Army Men from Safari Ltd.

A tube of six troops, all different.

Slightly painted, including boots and flesh.  Nice size with the Tim Mee soldier.

Brown boots!

Someone got a little too busy with the pink flesh!

Painting Walls

This is castle doom.  I painted it a light grey prime paint.  Then I used four shades of progressively lighter grey.

I applied the paint using this little triangle of make up remover foam.

Atomic Annie

I converted an AHM 14 inch US Army railway artillery gun into an Atomic Annie.

These bits are being primered before painting.

This truck is mostly Evergreen plastic sheet with a few Roco bits.

The pink flamingos are part of my WWII Berlin project.  They will be painted bronze and used to mark the entrances to the zoo aviary.

This is the boiler room.

Castle Doom

Castle Doom, interior.

It's not finished yet, I am test fitting the various furnishings.  Hall of kings.


Guard room.

DR Doom has a device that he can use to shrink people.  This is a tiny city.  Pyramids are from his time in Egypt.

Guard house.  This was built out of the chimney from the original building.  It is a separate out building.

Castle Doom

Work continues on Castle Doom. 

I am test fitting the furniture.

Science stuff.

Boiler room.

Hall of Leaders.

Work continues on the outside.  I am painting the window frames.

I am using Tamiya Purple spray and bottle paint.

I selected purple in keeping with the comic book theme of the building.

The window frames are mostly heavy, in keeping with the castle theme of the building.

Every alley is a demonic lane.

Every open space is covered with demons.

Reporting to Hell.

Demons plaguing soldiers.

Soldiers screaming in torment.

The horrors looming everwhere.

And the Devil overlooks it all!
