With time pressing on I thought I had better show that I had done some work for my dio.
The story is;
When the sniper left for his days hunt it was a fine autumn day, but within a couple of hours the sky darkened and snow begin to fall. The sniper was well behind enemy lines and was well hidden but he had to make the journey back without the adequate winter camoflague.
After several hours waiting his target didn't show, with other commitments he had to leave and return to base.
The enemy was extra cautious due to the snipers previous kills and the sniper had to use all his skill and environment for this return journey.
At a vehicle workshop he peers around the corner to check all is clear and few hundred metres away is his target next to a broken down car.
His location is unsuitable, his clothing not suitable camoflagueand he is still a distance from base.
Does he achieve his mission and take the shot or does he fail and make sure he is safe?
The question is does he use this window of opportunity?

Here is the building that will be used in the dio, it is not finalized and not on its base but it is a start. The workshop equipment is finished and photos will follow
All comments and suggestions are welcome.

Hola!

Awesome story! I really like it and will look forward to see your progress!!

as for posting pictures, its really pretty simple, so here is what you do.

Upload your images to MSN

When you see the picture you want to put in the post, right click it and select properties.

Now, look for the Adress (URL) line, and you will see the 'adress' to that picture. just highlight this and copy it (right click and select copy)

now go to your post and type [img] and then post your link here /img] (there should be a [ bracket infront of the /img] but it creats a picture link that doesnt exist) or just go down by the smiley faces ang press the button that says [img] and it will give you the brackets.

Hope this made sense

The walls are made with the wood from an ammo crate from work free of charge,and then they were coated with plaster "liberated" from the builder fitting my new bathroom.They were then marked with cracks,chips and brickwork. The window frames and roof timbers were made from balsa wood.The glass was made with plastic from a food container and the roof tiles from made from a sheet of plastic,individually cut and glue'd in place(quite time consuming). The weeds/grass growing up the side of the building was some old rope fibre and the boards on the window were again balsa wood.The wallpaper was downloaded from the net.
So the total cost so far is for the balsa wood 35pence (about 52cents) and for the sheet of plastic 80pence (about $1.20). I'm not sure if these prices are cheap or expensive for American prices, I worked on the one pound equals $1.60 exchange standard.
More photos coming soon
