Atlas Turntable Upgrade

While working on my hard shell scenery, I thought that it would be a good idea to also update my turntable to make it look a little more realistic. I wasn’t very fond of all the extra, unused entrance slots on the base, nor did I like my original gloss gray paint job. The paint job I originally did on the rotating table itself wasn’t half bad, but it too definitely needed some weathering effects. 

I started by first cutting styrene into curved strips to cover the tops and sides of the unused entrance slots. Once glued on and painted a light gray colour, the foundation now looks like a solid piece of concrete. I also painted the small shack that covers the turntable motor. I then weathered the turntable, foundation, and motor shack with various pastel powders. Finally, I sprayed the whole turn table with a layer of dull-coat.
