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.
|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.
|Concrete Bunker, Flak emplacement and trench system on the gaming table.GERMAN TROOPS IN FOXHOLES
