Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have found something really cool. You can make tank traps out of sprues and a spool of wire. Just clip out 3 sections of sprue that are similar in size (about 2"), take a file and smooth them out to your hearts content (sometimes i leave them as they are with the stuff sticking off them for that rugged look), then get your wire ready. First, wire together two of the sprue sections so that they are in the shape of an "X". then wire the third one onto it so it wil stand up. it is okay if they look rough, you are in a battlefield after all. Just prime them with black and you can either leave them that way or put some grey on. or you could do the whole pain job. whatever suits your level of skill. One of my favorite things to add detail with is either Green Stuff or hot glue and a toothpick. Hope you enjoy. these worked out well for me, let me know if it worked out for you.
Actually dude I've wanted to make some of those tank traps and was wondering how to do it, I was thinking card, but I can't cut it straight to save my life so this is perfect thanks!
I like the idea, I use my spurs to make rubble and barricades but this is definity a new one
I am gonna go have to try that out what a cool idea.
That is so simple it just might work!!! lol Sometimes it's the simplest things that we never think about.
Thanks a bunch, and do you have any finished ones you could post up?
Thats a great idea EchoUCA, thank you for posting it up on the forums. I love it when people take random junk and turn it into something useful and cool.
Any chance of a pic or two, I would like to see your work.
Yeah pics would certainly help, I'm a bit busy to make some right now though.
Great idea. Some pics would look really cool though.
Yeah, i'll see if I can post those. i have two that I just haven't primed yet. I'll be posting something on sprue barbed wire fences in a minute.
Still working on pictures. I have them, but do not know how to post them. Any help?
