Weirdboy Battle Tower 6

Only a small update. Took a bit longer than expected to do this, mainly to changing my mind more than once and having to redo some bits (and fill some holes in because of it).

I took one of the original fuel drums, removed the original bracketry from the bottom of it, did a lot of sanding and filling (not a great cast to be honest) and then made some new bracketry to mount it to the vehicle.

Chain was probably a bit unneeded, but what the hell.

The glyph says 'squig' - fuel inside is Squig derived ('squig juice').

The barrel is still removeable, there are a couple of brass pins to locate it. Once painted it will be glued in position. The small bit of walkway welded to the drum allows grots to get up there and fill it up with 'juice' and also to use the fuel line hanging down the side to transfer the fuel into the main fuel tank when it runs dry.

Fuel hose is hanging down off a hook, though you can't see it well in the pics.
