I have been very interested in these huge dystopic towering cityscapes from artists like Nihei and Chantarra. A bit Kowloon City on steroids.
Having an ample supply of h0 scale houses I figured I'd try to make a test panel to see if it works. A POC if you will.
Used an Ikea picture frame for it,  hoping to convey something liek the city bursting out of its bounds.
Glued the backing in and filled it with CD cases and assorted plastic shapes to make for a less even backdrop.
Then started to add houses and stuff without a real plan, to make it more organic (I hoped at least).
Already looks cool on the wall, just needs a ton of wires and tech and sheds.

Oh this is great! I'm a huge Nihei fan and just started reading Knights of Sidonia today. Kinda bummed that the Netflix series seems done. Will you be weathering it at all?

I am planning on painting it and at least griming it up.
Was planning on making it more or less one or twee shades of gray. But I do like the different, lighter colours it has on the bare plastic.

I love that type of model, full of details and little things you discover each time you look at it.
No plan to light it up?
