Chain link fence ammo/weapon/fuel storage.
Just to say before you read, some of the pictures aren't very good, I don't have a proper camera so sorry in advance.
My special ingredient was a fine metal mesh, I used a cheap frying pan spit/splatter guard (stops the fat from spitting up and burning you.)
Although any fine diamond or square mesh will do fine e.g. David’s fine aluminium mesh Davids Aluminium Mesh from Halfords Price ¡ò1.89 which is used to make repairs on a cars body work.
I first made a mock up with paper to work out how big the piece would be.
Then I drew the pieces I needed to cut onto a piece of paper in a circle the same diameter as the spit guard to work out the best way to cut my mesh.
I took(pulled, snapped and twisted) off the plastic ring around the mesh.
And then cut the pieces to the right height
I Decided, in order to maintain as much of the strength of the mesh as possible, that I would cut it into two pieces rather than four and just bent it at the two connected corners.
That's it so far...

Nice use of the secret ingrediant.
Just needs some supporting post and warning signs.
Basing it on wood?
Yup... I am also gunna make a gate for it
Your "scale mini" looks a bit armless . . .
First mini that came to hand... he was just waiting to recieve some newly converted melta gun arms
I've cut the board, Its Just MDF, I cut the edges with a knife and then sandpapered them down.
I then cut some thin sheet polystyrene (yes, its a pizza base ) For a base for the walls to slot into and to make a slight slope going up to slightly higher land(and to make slabs/tiles to detail the storage area.
I've also painted 3 long pieces of strip styrene(I think that's its name.) is just basically plasticard but in shapes(small square strip, a L shaped strip and some [ shaped strips.) they will soon be stuck to the mesh pieces.
Wondering why the main area is offset, planning on extra gubins outside the fence? if so then I like that idea!
Polystyrene can be sanded OK with 80 grit paper as long as you only go one direction, not back and forth.
Nice idea and looks very good so far. Looking forward to seeing the finished article.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
