Quick and Dirty Com Stations

Here's another "Evening Project". These actually took me a couple of nights but that's mostly because I dropped one during basecoating and had to put it back together. I also started them late the first night I built them. These only took a couple hours to build none the less and they are made almost entirely from junk.



Here you can see the parts. The antena are made from a couple of wooden beads and a toothpick. The dish is from the guts of a deodorant dispenser. The arm holding the dish up is the top of a plastic disposable shaving razor handle. The white part is a soda bottle cap and the clear part is a tub from a powdered drink mix container. The hardest part was using a razor saw to cut the plastic razor handles down. Very simple.

More cool stuff :)

Did you have any trouble getting the paint to adhere to some of the softer plastics in the pieces (I am looking mainly at the "dish" parts from the deodorant)?

Not so much the paint but getting them to glue together was a pain. In fact I'm going to have to find a little box to put these in because they are too fragle to be stored in one of my terrain tubs seperately.
