Default Underground Base (wip)

Hello fellow fighters...it's been awhile since I've shown you guy's something. I've been working on new MRAP's and a project for KTiger.
When I run out of supplies and can't get any for a time, I work on this project. Again I don't know what the hell I'm doing so I just wing it. This project has cost me a bit though as HD styrofoam is expensive and I have use a bit and I need more.
What you are about to see is only the beggining as this will eventually take the whole garage exept my workspace, (I'm trying to encorperate the two together). The little dudes sure like it, (my son's I mean).
I watched every youtube video about carving and painting foam rock and what tools to use, colors on the rock, and general techniques for this.
The next phase will be to add plants and trees and the background. I will probably make a mate painting background and buy a few yards of green screen material for shots. The underground will have 3 more floors for Baracks, Armory, and Comm's center will be added in time.
I'm sorry I didn't take shots at the very beggining as I didn't know where it was going. I did eventually start though. Here are some pics of the 'Underground Base'
















More to come....

Reminds me of my model railroading days.

Nice work so far, man!

Yes but the framing is 1x2's and 3/8 OSB so it will handle all the weight of the stuff.

Yes and no, the shelf's go all the way around my room,(exept the garage door of course), and I will only use the space that won't take up too much workspace room. The rest of the base will be underneath the first sub floor. Three more floors at 2'x4'.

It's surprisingly simple, but time consuming. I have a few suggestions like the foamboard...its expensive. A 4'x8' sheet of 3" HD white foam with the little pellets is $20. (Do not use the regular white foamboard as it just flakes into little tiny balls). But the blue and pink stuff is REALY expensive. A 1.5" 2'x8' blue SM foamboard is $24. I got the yard dude to break it and give me a discount so I only paid $12. The 3/4" 2'x8' pink was $18. You could easilly spend $100's on foam. FUUUUCCCKK this shit isn't cheap.

Looks awesome. Find friends in construction and raid their dumpsters when they use the pink or blue foam. My cousin is in construction and he always saves me the stuff. I have about 10 sheets in the garage, lol.
