Hardened Shelter

Well everyone I work at Petco as a dog trainer and am always looking out for stuff to use for building diorama settings and came across this animal cage and visualized it as a hardened shelter possibility. Cost of cage less then $10 so I had to try it.....

Decent starting detail on end wall, will make and extraction vent out of round protrusion ^

Added card stock to cover wire frame^

Added strip stryrene to cover wire seam lines and sprayed grey primer^

Cut out front for door opening that will be built next^

And a quick camo spray^
Next I will start adding the details and build the front doorsw once I plan out the diorama base I want to use it on...
