I set this up so that I can ramble on about my lead (and plastic) mountain, my endless gaming, miniature, and terrain projects, and other

insights into various games.

You'll find lots of 'pretty pictures', various modeling techniques, and hopefully some inspiration for your own lead pile. You're bound to

find something amongst my games and photos that interests you.

Sit back, open a cold one, and enjoy.

20mm Modern: Iraq roadsigns and billboards, pt. 2

Here's a follow up to an older post. http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=8660015160105754358#editor/target=post;postID=4463549177017288168

Here are the pictures of some of the finished road signs and billboards.

The local MaDonal's Restaurant, with appropriate Arabic signage. 

Here is the frame work for the signage.  Plastic tubing for most of the uprights and horizontal framing.  Flat, metal bases used for the signs.  

When attaching to the base, I use a 3/16" diam. hollow plastic tube glued to the metal base.  The vertical, upright post is a 1/8" diam. plastic tube that fits nicely into the hollow 3/16" tube. A flat, metal plate (metal base) is glued vertically to the plastic framework. 

 The signs are color copies onto paper that are then stuck to a sticky magnet (with peel off adhesive on one side). The signs then can be placed at will on the vertical metal plates on the signs. (I have a lot more signs than actual sign stands.

Here's an Iraqi billboard for Iraqi Airways.  

Typical street signs add flavor to a game, especially if you're trying to find somewhere specific, like Kuwait City or Baghdad. 

The Allied troops spend a lot of time on highways and byways and are often attacked there.  So, you always need some of these.  

 Gotta know where everything is.  Look, there's a MaDonal's up ahead, 0.2km to the right.  I'm feeling the need for a McShake.
