I am working on it night now. I plan to make a few templates and drawings as a PDF, along with a series of video tutorials. I have a new level of respect for the folks who make high quality tutorials for YouTube, tons of work.

I have one more day of work, the three weeks of vacation. Plan is to hit all my wargaming projects!

Client is planning to add guns to the towers, it was part of his initial request. I don't know what his plan is, but I will post pics if he sends me any.

Superb, can't wait! Were your wooden sections (like the floor panels) cut by laser or by hand? Magnetic terrain is never something i've even thought about, I'm itching to steal your concept and have a bash myself.

The wood sections are made from MDF. I made a template and then used an edge trimming router to duplicate the pattern. Next I used a table saw to cut the pieces apart. The table saw was not the best tool, I plan to purchase a band saw in the future, will be much safer.

I was working on this more today and remembered I had a few files that might be of interest.
The first is the PDF that I sent to the client illustrating the initial design.
I also included the file I made for the raised cardstock eagle I built for this project and also for a template for an eagle I airbrushed on to another piece.

Here is the Cardstock Eagle:




And the airbrushed one using the stencil:

This is so so very cool, you will go down in my memory as someone who gave me the idea of putting magnets in my terrain, I love magnets and have tons of spare large ones :D

I purchased a large Hexagon Perforated Aluminum sheet for this project. As a result I have more than I could use. I have listed the extra material on EBay is anyone is interested. You can cut it with a rotary cutter and a straight edge. It takes about the same effort to cut as mat board.
