My Father-in-law picked up a growhouse at B&Q the other day.  It's like a mini greenhouse with a plastic cover over the top.  This morning he was moving it and had taken the cover off it.  I looked at it and suddenly thought that could be a good training tower.  A bit of wood for floors, cargo netting down the side and a rope ladder or two, a bit of string off the top for a death slide...

Sadly he's now put the plastic cover back on it and put plants on the shelves before I could get my figures out and stand them on it!

Cool! We've got one of those, the covers never last very long cheers So i've now got two possible training towers waiting in the wings Wink

With very little alteration you could definitely turn that into a vam training tower, most definitely add the netting (wife's fishnet tights lol!) and homemade rope ladders, go for it! bounce

Or, remove the lower decks, put a roof and some walls around the top and make a watch tower.

...actually, I'm seeing the steel framework of a 4 floor HQ. The Apex could form the roof with exposed gun turrets on either side, the next floor down could be a watch tower as already suggested, then next floor down could be the command centre, then the next floor down could be the mess and the ground floor could be storage/garage for equipment and vehicle/s. Could be awesome... Cool
