3. Skip

A skip would be a typical detail - we took the one from the KIBRI-Set 'backyard environment' ( 8313). But not that yukky bright yellow, please! Some REVELL colours and…

A look into the skip reveals that there must have been loads of waste and rubble spread all over the site. For modelling the rubbish we took plaster and rigid-foam crumbs, some pieces of very thin wire and a few pinches of grit and talus.
