I moved this to home since most of the fabrication was done. It easily breaks down in a few minutes.

I started making the topper with some scrap sintra and a 3d piece I modelled up. I also printed the marker lights in a translucent PLA and will light these.

Here is my low tech lighting solution, a bright led flashlight and a couple of pieces I printed up. This should light up nicely at night but I’ll still throw a key light onto it.

I added a little bit of weathering and I am calling this done at this point. There are a couple of small details that I would like to add but I can always revisit this when I have more time. BTW, this is for my Halloween display this year.

You can see some of my past projects in the background. I built a tactile electric chair that I would strap the tots into and you can barely see the Jurassic Park set I built for a couple of years.

This looks amazing; great job! My only comment would be that it's in a desert, right? The surface would be blasted to a fairly matte finish I'd think. If it were me the final step would be to hit the whole thing with a dull matte clear coat and as it's drying maybe toss some fine grain sand on it here and there.

When it's time for installation it'd great to make a bed of sand around it too. Not sure how practical that step would be, but it'd be a nice touch.

The finish has toned down since I painted it and it is a satin finish, almost flat with the weathering on it. If I have more time to work on it I’ll go over it with a scotch brite pad and maybe a little more sand color in the crevices.

I could spend hours on weathering this but it won’t show up at night. I do like the idea of the sand base, just have to wrap my head around hue I am going to do that and keep it to a size I can easily store.

Fantastic work. I am looking to start my own here. But I cant for the life of me find something to use that is wide enough for the pipes? Any recommendations?

If you want to make something lightweight and dirt cheap, look at the method I used for a couple of the rings. I cut some 2” foam rings and wrapped them with paper and Weldon glue. You can give a light texture and paint afterwards.
