HissTank newcomer PlastikArmyMen posted up his beautiful POC inspired, scratch built Outpost Defender for our viewing and drooling pleasure.
The main structure is built with styrene plastic/bondene and the sandbags were painstakingly cut, filled, and sewn individually with materials that were on hand.
Following Hasbro’s designers, I was inspired by classic movies in the overall design of the outpost. I liked the modular look of Whiskey Outpost from Starship Troopers and the heavy duty feel of the raptor crates from Jurassic Park. From there, I blended certain design elements while maintaining the overall silhouette of the original Outpost Defender.
Sound off on this wonderful custom after the jump.
