Been playing around with making resin accessories for myself - from styrofoam masters - heres the first batch - the dunny seat is a WIP and I'm still working to perfect it - thought a wooden toilet seat might look cool in the stowage on a tank or in the back of an Opel Blitz-

The dragons tooth in the front is the styrofoam master - its the only one that survived the mold making process

Nice job so far. What you can do is use these as new masters. Clean these up, tiddy them up a bit and recast these. It's good practice and you end up with refinements as you go.

I like what you've done with the styrofoam. The Jersey barriers look suitably beat up. Cudos on the dunny seat also. Toilet seats are pretty overlooked as stowage (but oh so necessary in the scheme of things). My platoon in '03 hauled one all over Iraq, although we had a vehicle and could carry a few creature comforts. Gimme a real seat over sitting on the end of an ammo crate any day.
