These items have been sitting on my computer for a while finally found some time to post them.
For the project you will need 2 metal washers,scissors,superglue, 2 x evergreen stryrene sheet, not pictured hobby hand drill and 4 x tiny earth magnets.
Cut the Evergreen stryene sheets into irregular shapes,superglue the metal washers in place and prime with a black primer.
Paint with Vallejo game colour Stonewall Grey and highlighted as the Concrete Bunker.
Conversion work on 2 Warlord game plastic Germans.
|Used Milliput putty to fill in any gaps.|
Add flock to the Tobruk, paint the figures and using your hobby hand drill prep holes in the base of the Tobruk and the underside base of each figure.
Place a small amount of superglue in the holes and position the magnets (make sure to check the polarity before gluing them in position).
|Touch up with paint on over the magnet in base of the Tobruk. |
|I used 3mm MDF to construct the Bunker, building up piece by piece and gluing each individually to make up the bunker. |
|The roof was made from a 9mm MDF filed down around the edges and used coarse sand paper to roughen up the MDF.|
|Completed construction with roof in place - just a note if I was to make another Concrete Bunker I think I would just make it out of Dense Steryne foam.|
|Vallejo Game colour Stonewall Grey to wet brush over the whole surface.|
|Next step continue to wet brush the whole surface with Vallejo Model colour Off white. |
|Add some colorization to the bunker with VMC offwhite, Green Orche, Black Grey,Olive Grey and Vallejo Game colour Carne Marron Tan |
Add PVA glue to the surface that will be flocked and sprinkle on flock.
I have used Woodland scenic Earth blend, dark green and whatever I had at hand at the time.
|The door at the rear of the Concrete bunker was painted with VMC Black Grey and highlighted, I also added some VMC calvarly brown. |
|Pak 40 in action.|
|Completed Flak emplacement.|
|Starting the process.|
|I used MDF, 3mm for the base and 9mm for the edges.|
|Once put together I filed the MDF to roughen the surface.|
|I followed the same painting steps as per Concrete Bunker.|
|Painted and ready for the application of flock.|
|As these items where constructed for a 2 day gaming event The day before the event I forgot to order a flak gun, so I whipped this up in 20 mins using bits and pieces of plastic sprue, Every green stryene sheets and a drill bit.|
|Slapped on some paint and washed it with Agrax earthshade. |
The construction of the Flax it not going to win any prizes in a modelling contest but it did the job for the event.
|Germans rushing thru the trenches to engage the enemy.|
|Using dense strenye Foam cut sketch in the trench, use difference sizes of files to shape the trench.|
|I use a large modified cardboard box to contain the mess from filing the foam.|
Cheap hobby sticks trimmed and glued around the boundary of the trench.
Painted the trench VMC Earth and highlighted and flocked applied.

|German section in foxholes|
|Members of the Rifle team.|
|Each individual figure has a tiny earth magnet on the underside of the figure which adhesives to the metal floor of the foxholes.|
