I've been quiet around recently, and this is the reason: I'm currently working on a christmas gift for charlie's son so I spend most of my time in the basement working on that thing. What is it? Well, when I was his age, I enjoyed playing with G.I. Joe's toys, so I decided instead of buying anything to his son, I would prefer to make something unique and fun for him: a G.I. Joe base. I thought about something easy to do, while being fun and nice and I ended up with something that I would have played with when I was 4-5yo too. It's not finished, but I'm updating pictures as soon as I progress. Here's some pictures of it:
Notice the 4 holes in the center (except the screws holes): I'll put some flashing 12v leds in them to have a landing plate for an helicopter on the rooftop. I also plan to put some lights in and outside the base.
There's no door on these pictures, but I've added some sliding doors for the "garage" on the right and another one for the action figures on the left.
It's a rough version so far, but once painted it'll look definitively better. I'll post some updates later this week when I'll get some time to work on it.
