Oil Silo

Rusty Oil Silo from Customeeple. Another terrain piece that I finished recently. It was a practice for my airbrushing skills 🙂 I also enjoyed painting all those scratches and rust streaks.
The silo is made of MDF. The manufacturer suggests using cardboard tube from toilet paper for the silo body, but I wanted something more durable and better made. I put to good use empty deodorant can. With steel saw I cut top and bottom of the can (it was totally used, without any pressure inside!) and received nice aluminum tube 80mm long and 43mm in diameter – perfect for this task. When I find another appropriate tube source, I will make the second silo from the set.
I think the finished silo looks quite good and can find use in many S-F or modern wargames.
