Here is some of my Pulp City terrain. Last weekend I made a bunch of stuff for a playground. I thought this would be a fun place for supremes to fight. This also goes allong with the Supreme Genesis competition for a team of kids. I still need to paint a few pieces and finish the swing set.


Enjoy.


Here is an overview of a few heroes and villains at play.

A closer look at the slide...

Harrier on the turning thing. I have no idea what theese are called. It actually spins.

Acorn is playing in the sandbox. I'm going to add more details to this, but yu can see how it is starting.

My favorite monkey on the monkey bars!

What I would do is add some handles (just some bent, small diameter copper rod) to the seesaw, I think that would go a long way in making them look more realistic - they're a bit plain right now. Unless you were planning on doing that anyway, then I didn't say anything. ;p

I plan on adding some handles but may paint it first.

The telephone booth, mailbox, and trash can are O scale railroad accessories in a set along with some fire hydrants. You can get the set here: http://www.walthers.com/exec/productinfo/433-1851 They look great and are on sale for a fantastic value.

Very good scenery pieces and that Chimp Chi in "Storm Shadow" version is absolutely great, you gave me a very good idea to paint mine.

Thanks guys!

I'm having fun with it. After I make the swing set, I have some plans for a skate park...

And Raven, I like the white look, but also consider the Kill Bill jumpsuit. someone else did that and it looked great. Chimp Chi is a really fun model.

Hey Larb, great scenery. Thanks for the WIP shots--looks relatively simple to copy (the purest form of flattery).

I really like this idea, I'm tempted to steal it for my suburban board I'm working on. How do you bend the piping? I've not worked with tubing in mini conversion before so I was wondering if there's a secret technique to keep all the bends even, and stop it from collapsing and breaking.
