Reaper Bones plastic 32mm scale miniature #80044 "Flying Saucer" modified as a playground structure, with special guest appearance by the PVC promo figure "Zetan" from the Modiphius "Fallout: Wasteland Warfare" Two-Player Starter Kit (and assorted other bits in the background for decor).
My intent here was to turn this tiny flying saucer from the Kickstarter into one of those "flying saucer" structures found on ruined playgrounds in the Fallout series of video games. Somehow, just having a single piece of playground equipment seemed rather lonely, so I made use of assorted bits of junk to add a couple of other playground features as well.
The saucer is modified from the original model by taking a section of a small plastic disposable cup and cutting holes in it to serve as a "spacer" between the top and bottom portions of the saucer model. I used a hobby knife to remove the alien pilot (I may find a more formidable war machine for him to pilot later on), and replaced the spidery little legs with some big pieces of mat board. The slide is made from more mat board, scored and bent to make a slight curve, with epoxy putty as gap-filler. I left the top portion removable so a figure could be put inside (for whatever reason). While I was at it, I imagined that thanks to that dome up top, the saucer might actually provide SOME sort of shelter against the elements, so someone might have used it to store a little supply cache. I put in a few assorted items (can of "Greasy Prospector" Pork & Beans, backpack, bottle of Nuka Quantum, a "Blast Radius" board game, and a couple of issues of "Astoundingly Awesome Tales"), and had one can that's rolled down the slide (perhaps empty, and just trash ... though, come to think of it, the playground could probably stand to have a little more litter here and there, given how trashy everything is in Fallout 4).
For another feature, I made a merry-go-round out of a spare "sewer cover" from a TMNT play set (the same one I turned into the Wok-a-Doodle street scene earlier), some paper clips for the supports/handles, and the cap from an empty super-glue container as the centerpiece (that, painted, maybe if you squint at it looks at least a LITTLE like a red rocket ready to blast off).
Then, a see-saw, made from a craft "popsicle stick" teetering on a plastic hinge piece cut off from the aforementioned TMNT play-set sewer manhole cover (as in the original toy the cover had a "breakaway feature" where you'd hit a button and any figure standing on it would be dropped into the "sewer" area below). I pasted some pictures of retro rockets (I think they might be El Gato designs?) and then tried some freehand work to make some of those "asterisk" stars, a ringed planet, and a crescent moon, to continue the space theme. If only I had some small springs and little rocket ships as bouncy-riders to put somewhere on the playground! (Maybe I'll add more features later.) Anyway, the spacy part is at least my tip of the hat to the "retro-futuristic" vibe of Fallout (as opposed to merely making it all generic 1950s-ish stuff).
I had a mind to add a boundary fence, but I'm not sure how to do that in a way that won't be flimsy and prone to easy breakage. "Mars Attacks!" terrain sets from Mantic include a nice little plastic picket fence section, but I'd need a score of those to surround the playground (and there's only one per set), so that's not even remotely cost-effective. Storing this thing is already going to pose a challenge, even without the fencing. Right now, I've got the pieces glued down on the "playground" board, but I may have to go back and remove them and give them their own bases, so I can store the individual pieces in some foam-lined containers and maybe extend their usable lifespan a bit before I have to do major repairs.
The house in the background is a Bachmann Plasticville O-scale "Ranch House," assembled and put on a mat board base, painted up in acrylics and partially furnished. In the background, the ground continues with some Secret Weapon Miniatures "Tablescapes" terrain boards ("Scrap Yard" theme).
