Using a syringe I added some clear resin that I tinted green in to the drain part of the toilet pan and also added a small roll of toilet paper in case of emergency. I had intended to litter the floor more with old bottles and rubbish but at this point have decided to call it finished.
Now back on to working on something with wheels.

They ARE the real thing.  I spent a couple of hours cutting and sanding lengths of styrene tube that I planned to paint up. Mrs k1w1 walks in and said why don't you tear a toilet roll apart and make them from that - Never crossed my mind........possibly I should lay off her with the Blonde jokes in future. Toilet rolls are made in layers so I peeled off a layer and cut it into strips then wound it around a tube and glued it. Great as doing it this way there is no need to paint them.

Thanks DeeCee and Blat -  I think I may have overdone the green a bit. Should have been more of the  darker colours, though the greens were fun to work with. AK Slimey Green Dark and Slimey Green Light

Fresh eyes you see.  Sometimes they think of things we don't that are so bleedin' obvious.

when i saw the title, i expected a motorcycle.... Crying or Very sad

t'd be a fine diorama base for a 1/12 figure. maybe the Punisher or someone like that. (or perhaps a SAW diorama). The green makes it look like a long abandoned bathroom and the mold has taken over.
