Planet Planning

G'day all,

Unfortunately I've left my camera oop North. So a bit of a wordy update I'm afraid.

I ordered this;
From I intend to create and cast some stowage for my tanks.

The things that GW/FW don't make are sand channels. I am making some of this;
It's called Marston/Marsden matting. It was designed in WWII as a way of quickly creating airfields (particularly helpful on the advance to Japan, and the Pacific Islands). Essentially, strips of pierced steel which is longitudinally hooked together.
My design takes the pierced steel look but the hooks on the sides will be more 40k style by being more simple. I'm hoping to cast the product so I won't worry about the combination of materials I use.

Hopefully I should have some pictures up within the week.
