Clearing my workbench

I spent this weekend clearing my workbench.  Not very much for some folks who seem to be able to produce massive amounts of stuff, but pretty good for me since I have about sixteen modeling projects on the go.  Kind of my hobby deficit disorder. 
First off is some pipeline sections.  These are cast from Hirst arts molds and just need some flock/static grass and felting on the base. 
Next up is my greenhouse.  It is a MDF kit from Warbases and I finished it off with some photo etched plants from GW and 4D.  I am pretty happy with it. 

Lastly is my campfire.  I needed one for my Gypsy campsite and Figured now was a good time to try it out.  I used the Ember techniques from the Osprey Masterclass Terrain modeling book.  Richard Windrow is the go to source for detailed techniques and if you have not read his books you really should.  The fire-pit is just gravel glued to the base and filled on the edges.  The fire is small twigs and horsehair and rubber fibers.  The glowing embers are made using Humbrol day glow paint. 

Hope you like.
