The following are pics of 15mm models that I built sometime back for my modern African games. They are based on various photos that I found on the internet.
One of the photos that I came across was of a makeshift playground in a shanty town. It inspired the model below. My version has a makeshift sliding-board and half burried tires along with bits of junk and boulders.
The last pic is of a couple shanties based on those near one of the Blackhawk crash sites in Mogadishu.
They are made from various pieces of patterned styrene sheet, styrene strips, basswood, and blue foam; assembled with superglue and Tenax 7R solvent, and painted with various Polly-Scale, Model Master, and Vallejo paints.
