With Kernel I started working a few weeks before most. I started with modelling a few props and various items of interest. Things like shears, pegs, and the most beautiful scissor mirror, that was wrote out of the script, and will now be back logged :(. Since I've been with the project early on I've seen the story change and improve, but due to these changes I never started work on anything to big, just in case it wasn't needed. With modelling it seems like the more effort i put in the more i learn and get back, i use to model really quite high poly, most of which wasn't even needed, so I've manage to learn how to model 'properly'. Anywhoooo, here is some of the things I modelled, what seems years back:

I've also used my own creativity to help 'fill' out the scene. Its still work in progress, the roof needs to be lowered but here is how the shed looks:
