22C - Abandoned airport

With most of the humans safely upgraded to HumanZ many of their airports were abandoned and left to nature by toot.

Ten days later - ten years later the airport has changed.

The airport is overrun by nature

Planes, building roofs, containers and covered with greenery.

The military planes have been left to rust and rot.

Even the control tower is covered and trees have grown in the runway verges.

All the toys are the same as the previous post except that the military aircraft were much cheaper before they were spray painted, detailed and covered with flock.


The look is inspired by a lot of post apocalyptic art work. When looking at photos of long abandoned planes, hardly ever are they covered by any plants growing on their wings. Sometimes reality has no sense of what is appropriate.

22C - Airport

Some new terrain for future games.

A small airport that is shared with the military.

As airports are very large I have just taken a small slice. Also I have designed it so that it can be used as a port and a space port as well.

Main runway, military aircraft to the left, hangers with aircraft to the right, control tower and radar bottom left.

Another view

View of the passenger aircraft and containers ready to load. On the left the airport car park.

I took some inspiration from the airport at Vladivostok in Russia.

All planes are toys from the $2 shop. Hangers are from Outland Models ebay store with some enlargement of the hanger doors. The middle model with the blue doors is unmodified. Cars, buses and trucks from Aliexpress.

22C - toot army

Armies of toot

toot needed an army to take over the world. Initially it was made up mostly of CarZ, BusZ, TruckZ DroneZ and TankZ.

As the human resistance to its rule began to emerge and threaten toot's control it needed to add HumanZ and finally RoBroZ to its forces.

First a picture of the entire army. Led by the main elements of RoBroZ, TankZ, and DroneZ. Flanked by TruckZ, BusZ and CarZ and bringing up the rear in a disorderly mess are the HumanZ.

RoBroZ are from Pendraken’s Scifi range, TankZ and DroneZ are Dropzone Commander from Hawk Wargames. BusZ, TruckZ, CarZ, and HumanZ are from Aliexpress.

RoBroZ name is from the Flight of the Conchords’ 2007 CD “The Distant Future” track “Robots”. I was going to call them TerminatorZ but RoBroZ is much funnier.

22C - toot town abandoned

toot is a ride share app that has become self aware and is intent on taking over the world.

Ferals are the tribes and gangs that grew from the humans who were already prepared for the apocalypse that toot started.

As the ferals gained control of the countryside increasingly the small towns became isolated and vulnerable. Raids and attacks caused toot constant concern and problems.

Some towns were too important to be undefended and toot concentrated its defences in these towns, making them fortresses. But other towns were surplus and toot took the decision to abandon them and concentrate its resources where required. The towns would be re-occupied when the ferals and resistance had been crushed.

The ferals didn’t occupy them as they didn’t trust that toot wouldn’t return and in any event they made occupying the towns would make the ferals an easy target.

The abandoned towns were soon overgrown.

Feral recon forces would occasionally swing through the town and take photos to ensure the town remained unoccupied by toot.




toot is now offline
