for the comments and compliments! I'll address a couple of them directly here:

Now that looks epic, great job. I especially like the abandoned look you've given them, it works a treat. Have you considered making a communication array or radar dish type section? Or prehaps some empty supply crates or an abandoned vehicle?
Thanks for the compliment! I do have a radar dish that I could use from another bunker/ terrain project I did. You can see that here: (about halfway down)http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=14135&p=175062&hilit=project+bunker#p175062
I haven't had a go at seeing where I could put it yet though, but because I didn't glue it so it could be moved or left off I could easily use it.

My only critique would be the drone and XV25 bit attached to the platform, they seem stuck on and out of scale with the rest of your added components, which the latter seem to blend in better due to their more rounded bulk like the 'buildings' they apart of.
Possibly remove them, and blend them into a larger component section over the same space perhaps?- Tael.
I agree with you! The more I look at it the more out of place it seems. One idea that comes to mind is taking the XV25 bit off, removing the antenna and using the "bulbs" as landing lights. With a couple more I could space them evenly around the landing pad.
Greypuffin Also, can I say how much I like your Kroot.
...err, absolutely! I posted some pictures of them recently as I added hounds for the first time. You can see them here:http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=14579&p=181073&hilit=kroot#p181073
I have to say that some of the main parts here, like many other things in my apartment, come from the "100 Yen Shop" near where I live outside Tokyo ("Hyakkuen shop" or "Hyakkin" as Ainoshiren correctly says.) so actually, I can't admit to being a true scavenger when some of the pieces cost a dollar each.
The tower was a good scavenge though!
In Japan, most areas make you strictly sort your rubbish before putting it out and my apartment has a special area just for "Small Metal" (lamp stands, wire coat hangers, and anything with metallic components that doesn't go in the "Burnable Rubbish".) excellent place to look.
(Sadly, nearly gone are the days when you could furnish an entire apartment with furniture and stereo from the "Big" rubbish section outside every apartment though...not that the stuff in that section is any good for modelling!)
@Stoopicus & Ainoshiren
I'll try to bring them to our next gaming day - but I'm definitely out of space in my luggage these days!
Thanks everyone for the comments and help. I'm going to see if I can't improve some things based on what's been said and will let you know how it goes.
All the best,
