The damage looks really realistic; how did you achieve the torn appearance?

Nice work with the electrickery. I don't fully get the whole scene though. What is the orange fireball on the side?
Maybe some more pics too :)

The explosion at the side is from where the Martians heat ray has cut through the gas main under the pavement.

Excellent build, KP with some great effects. This is one of the best Sci-Fi based dios I've seen for a while.

Well some people are so rude. I'm a member of Instagram ( I have been a member for a while but only really started posting model pics lately)I don't know much about social media but normally I just post pics with no explanation so I posted these pics as it gone along, after this update I got 80 likes in one day (that is the most I've had so far) well I got a private massage saying "you should stick to drawing this is crap my six yr old could do better"that's just plain rude, I don't know them, they don't know me, and obviously a lot of people like it, I don't know why people feel they have to make statements like that. I've looked ate some of their posts and they don't even build models (at least if they do they're so crap they don't post them)


TROLLS :ha: ,I was on youtube and mentioned that I had been through Lockerbie the day before the 747 crashed there, when someone got abusive calling me a jew and a commie and some crude sexual references...So I got pretty abusive in return calling him a troll.
Heard nothing since. :grin:
