As some of you have guessed from my last comic, the 'Ammo Arms' is under a make over. I have extended the original design by an extra foot in length, making it now 5ft x 2 1/2ft x 1 1/2ft.

Update,

Fitted new inner walls

and started a spot of wallpapering lol! Should look better once the glue has dried out cheers

I have decided not to venture too far from the original design, with a few small changes bounce

Ammo Arms Rebuild Update pt03

All the wallpapering is now finished. I decided to wallpaper the top section of the back wall this time, rather than have all the stark brickwork. More to come soon! As you can see the black wallpaper put on yesterday dried out nicely, todays wallpapering wull do the same cheers

Thanks Rich and James, the boys are getting restless without their watering hole, but as Jake has told them, its their own fault lol!
The new 'Ammo Arms' is about a foot longer James, so plenty of room to get more of the lads inside cheers cheers

New flooring goes in.

I used cladding to make the floor, Cladding is easy to use and cut and looks great as floor boards.
