28mm Scratch built buildings for near future/ Sci-Fi/ Zombie apocalypse games

I've taken a bit of a break from painting figures recently, instead I have been dedicating my diminishing hobby time (damn the SATs preparation!) to scratch building terrain for up coming Zombie games at Evesham Wargames Club. Below is the first completed piece - a simple chain link fenced, gated compound. I decided not to fix in any features to give the piece greater flexibility of use. The pieces in the picture are engineering modules from Fenris Games the zombies are from Cold War Miniatures and the hapless survivor is from Hasslefree Miniatures.The compound was made simply from a sheet of MDF, balsa dowel, Starbucks wooden coffee stirrers and a sheet of plastic tapestry sheet that I found at school (known in the hobby as 'granny grid').
Don't go in there kids!
The model was painted with textured masonry paint and a selection of citadel and Vallejo paints and washes. The warning signs are just that; images of warning signs copied off the net, shrunk to size and printed.
Next on the workbench: a chemical storage tank.
