I actually finished this months ago. I found it for really cheap on a website and it's actually what has gotten my interest back into the Turtles. I thought the playset was AWESOME. But the color scheme was not very sewer-esque. I pretty much covered every inch of every section in black and then drybrushed all the detailing. (Insignia red over black for bricks, medium grey over black for concrete/marble.) I think its a vast improvement. I decided that the center circular floor is the workout/training area so I left it all black to stand out, like a padded floor. The kanji in the center circle means family. I thought this was appropriate since that seems to be the core of Master Splinter's teachings. Unfortunately, the set was missing a couple of things, I.e. the floor above the subway car and the door/weapons rack. For these I measured, cut, and painted the pieces to fit. I also added weapons to the door/weapons rack with twist ties. I would have put it up sooner, but I didn't want to photograph it until I had turtles to display it with. Let me know what you all think.

Ah here it is. Saw this as the display backdrop of MintConditionCustoms 2014 movie Turtles and since I want to customise my figures of the same line too I wanted to get this set. This is the 2003 TMNT cartoon playset right? I'm seeing it on eBay all grey and yours looks fantastic. May have to get me one and have a go at painting it up like yours (or a bargain basement version of yours, I lack skills). Seems like a good playset for any of the various Turtle figure lines. (edited cos I got the other guy's name mixed up)

My single favorite part of this is the last picture with Casey watching television. I like the rest, but that is my favorite part.
