Storage tank disaster
#1
Some time back I built a storage tank using a soda can. Since then I have been wanting to make one that had burst open. Here are the results so far.

I had experimented with this idea some time ago. The way I created the rupture in the past was to cut two slits in the soda can, and tear the metal back. It did not have a natural appearance. For this project I decided to cut an access hole in the can so I could push the material outward from the inside.

After the initial hole was started I continued poking and tearing until I had a rupture that I was satisfied with

Not worrying too much about appearance, I used hot glue to close up the access opening.

I like the look of welded seams. In the past I used hot glue to create welded seams. It looked ok, however the bead was to big. This time I decided to try 3D paint. I just sort of made up the pattern as I went.

I will be posting a quick description of how I took this picture in the off topic section.

Next was grey primer, gloss orange spray paint, a brown wash, and a rust weathering powder.

Here is the weathering powder I used.

I wanted to have a destroyed ladder on the side of the tank. I figured I could either buy a pre-made plastic from Plastruct or Evergreen, or I could make one by soldering together copper wire. I chose the copper wire.

I shaped the ladder so it fit around the undamaged side of the can.

I cut the ladder i half and mangled it into a shape that I was somewhat satisfied with

I dont think I've ever heard of this 3D paint.. What an interesting little tool.

Good work on the storage can too. That rust is super strong and the ladder was a good effect!

Thanks Duane.

The 3D paint is actually made for putting designs on fabric.

It's what I use to make magic portals and spell effects.

Great project!  I like the blow out effect and the fabric paint is a good idea for better in- scale welds.  Did you do anything to the torn edges of the can to protect against injury during game play?  Seems like they could be a little sharp!

I had the same concerns.

Well here's the funny thing. I don't actually play. I can't find a game with simple enough rules that I can play. I don't have time for difficult rules, or having to read a set of books to be able to play a game. I enjoy building models. I really enjoy scratch building. The thing I like about gaming terrain is that I can do small sci-fi projects. Playability isn't really a concern for me. The sad thing about that is that none of my projects ever get used.

I use glow in the dark 3d paint.
