15/18mm Scale Pipelines

Hello again all,
Here is my latest bit of terrain.
Generic Pipelines.

Various bits & bobs used including spice containers, a/c drain pipes, 3D printed resized pipes & fittings , balloon 6mm diameter tubes & card. The computer terminals are from Antenocities. 5mm ( hole size) chicken wire was used for the railings.

White PVA was mostly used with CA for the magnets.

The bases are made of double Pinsa box card ( just fyi Pinsa is a rectangular type of pizza native of Rome ). So if you can get hold of this type of box card it is some of the best around. Much sturdier than normal pizza card.... and it is obviously recyclable. I stuck mosquito netting to it to add texture.

Almost all the bits have 4mm magnets. Almost all because I made a mistake with the orientation of some of them 😒  ( now I've made a jig with 2 magnets & sprue to avoid just this ... about time !!! )
Anyway, to counter act this I used the heads of old 4 to 5'' nails ( cut down to size ) & 1 euro cents stuck to some of the pipes or terrain.

I plan to use these with my power station 

and my guard tower & fence

Thanks for your comments. 


  1. As always, your creations look ace mate! Just a quick question, what the stairs are made from? The detailing on the steps look great!

  2. Hello again my friend.
    Thank you for the kind words. They are made from Pvc bits cut from reclaimed sheets ( think House selling boards or political campaign poster boards). The texture is very simple, just use a nicely textured flat nose plier.

  3. There are also instructions at the link on how to build a jig out of sprue so that stair building is easy & repeatable.

    1. I'll keep that tip in the memory bank for later builds. Thanks mate, it looks great!

      Looking forward to seeing this terrain set painted up too. Cheers 😊

  4. Welcome Mr.P.
    If you require further explanation, just ask.
    Will post as soon as I paint them :)
