15mm Modern MDF GameCraft Miniatures Parking Structure.....

....or my shenanigans with PVA glue, some scale and size pictures as well, it's not painted yet but a lovely piece though!

I got a few pieces of GameCraft (good service) due to selling some figures and terrain, most of the items didn't require instructions (don't come with any) but this does and you need to look at the site to see how this goes together (I didn't to begin with and some angry bodging later I rectified some little mistakes), everything fitted together nicely and this piece has many uses for gaming, I've tried to give you some idea of scale if you're contemplating a purchase.

Reminded everyone last night about the clocks going back and I fecking forget to do it myself and I'm up half an hour before I realise I'm up an hour early!

You can add as many floors as you like.....

Vehicle ramps to the above levels.....

Lift doors with Rebel Minis, Khurasan, The Scene and Peter Pig figures....

As they fit on the top floor....

Size picture of the middle floor.....

Some Khurasan sci-fi vehicles on the top floor.....

Next to the lift.....

Larger view of top level.......

1st floor, I think I will leave the levels unglued to allow better access.....

Ground floor and access level.......

  1. Wow, that's a substantial piece of kit! You could easily have a game just centered around that model. Great job on the assembly, Fran.

  2. Damn, that is cool and those cars rule.

  3. Nice parking garage. And the cars are cool as well.
    When all else fails, read the directions?

  4. I wonder what you would have to roll to successfully perform a vehicle jump from one roof to the next.

    1. You have to play a game on it involving this idea, it's too cool to pass up.

  5. I have a bunch of Gamecraft 20mm buildings for Force on Force. Unfortunately I decided to go with the foamcore option. The foamcore requires a lot more finish work since the laser melts the foam away from the edges.

    Your structure looks great though Fran! Next time I expect to see it painted with all the parking spaces nicely outline in white or yellow.

    1. You're having a laugh with the parking spaces Kris.

  6. I can confirm there was a lot of bodging at the beginning combined with a hell of a lot of abusive colourful language!

    1. That sounds fun. Do you have a transcript?

  7. Does it come with a booth and a gate so people have to pay for parking?

  8. Great looking car park.
    Thanks for the inside tip Ray.

  9. Nice looking parking garage. I recall my oldest boy's toy parking garage from many years ago - before I got into gaming. Now if I only had kept it. Best, dean

  10. I can just see a "Die Hard" type game happening in and around this impressive structure.

  11. That's a really cool look terrain piece. 15mm does make since for zombies. You can really have a horde at that size.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Really slick. I love that you can take the levels up and off like that.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Nice work on this! Wish it came in 28mm scale though.. could then begin to work on the dual garage, car jump idea posted above ;)

  14. That is a nice looking bit of kit indeed Fran and there are loads of scenarios you could play on this thing. And as for you cursing too much, for fucks sake man you're not cursing you're just talking. It's normal, perfectly fecking normal. Jesus effin' Christ, some people are just too sensitive. If that arsemonkey Ray can't handle it speak in a language the fecker can't understand.

    Hey Ray- Go hifreann leat! That may or may not be me cursing you!

    4. Women should never say or type the word FUCK.
      :D
      I am so offended by this...I think I will need to lay in bed now, and cry for a little while...
      ;D

    5. I didn't use that particular word Joseph. But seeing how you're a Yank, I don't imagine you'd understand that :D

      Delete
    6. Women who eluded to the word FUCK, should not follow up by saying YANK!
      :P
      Hee, hee, hee...

  15. That's.. kinda awesome.. I think I'd be more excited if I understood how they could be used. Hehe

  16. I have only one problem with this parking structure, it's too clean!

    Really, it is easily the cleanest parking lot of any sort I've ever seen. No oil stains, garbage, graffiti, or dead bodies to be seen. Otherwise it looks pretty good.

  17. Looks quite impressive. My 15mm moderns might want to fight about this. Thanks for the heads up!

    Cheers

  18. Wow, very impressive. I'm thinking one of those in 28mm and a zombie scenario....

    ReplyDelete
  19. Unusual, very nice and futurist...great work!

    ReplyDelete
  20. A wonderful structure Sir, but how are you going to model the dubious smelling stairwells?

    ReplyDelete
  21. That is all kinds of awesomeness! I bet Ray is green with envy!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Know that is a really lovely bit of kit!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's a great piece of scenery. I'd love one in 28mm scale.

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is one fine piece of modelling sir.

  25. Strewth I just had a flashback! I had something like this car park when I was a kid (I'm talking 1950's here). There was a garage attached to it too, but I'm damned if I can remember who made it. Like most good toys tough, it got played to death.

    This is another step along the path of a tempting new period . . .

    ;O)

  26. Wow, that is really cool. Ive looked at Gamecraft stuff in 6mm - this looks like a nice piece of kit!

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's a really great model!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was going to buy this too, but the wood thing is an issue, even if you treat it first it may warp on you. Let us know how it works out for you brother... If it can be finished without warping it will be great center-piece model!
    :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. Great model! And you builded this without instructions? :-D

    Just teasing Fran! ;-)

  31. I never thought I would actually say this sentence but that parking lot looks really badass and like a lot of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Okay, that's pretty nifty. The expandability is a nice touch.

  33. I didn't realise parking attendants had their own wargame.

  34. That is a big bit of kit. Props to you

  35. Looks fantastic Fran. Can't wait to see it painted up.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hmmm, I could use this during a game of Zombicide....I could put it in the middle, and play outward...

  37. Nice acquisition Supreme General. This structure should serve the Franonian Cause for a long time, unless contractors from Rayonia have infiltrated the Franonian work force and had a devious hand it's erection. Check for re-bar, high level intelligence services are sure that Dictator Ray is about to unleash a Mechanical Spontaneous Earthquake Generating Machine upon the inhabitants of the grand land of Franonia to ingloriously bring down many of the exalted edifices raised in your honor. Hail Franonia!

    ReplyDelete
  38. looks great put together are you getting any more to go with it? all Hail Franonian LOL

  39. Allen (Gamecraft) is surely producing some fine pieces of terrain. You did a good thing buying his products Fran. Have fun with them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thats a great looking car park, building there and fit in with the figures well

    ReplyDelete
  41. HAHAHAHA I just imagine a game where a V.I.P runs to get in the car only to realise the buggars have parked it too far away always happens in a real car park as you cannot help but get lost and then go the wrong way but in the movies no such problems.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It already looks cool Fran and so when it gets some paint it going to look brill!

  43. Thats a big piece of terrain and no mistake! Look forward to seeing it painted up!

  45. You, my friend, are talented.

    And I NEVER forget when we gain an hour. I look forward to it from the time we spring forward!

  46. This is different from your normal miniatures and they look awesome and I agree with Dwei , it is too clean Fran, ask Ray to do something to shower some reality . :)

  47. Great looking model. Cannot wait to see it painted

  48. That is really clever having it seperate into different levels. too clever by far.
