On The Workbench 1

I have made a start on building the rocky outcrop around the Coastal Gun Emplacement. So far so good. I am continuing with the theme of having the abandoned look on all the WWII fortifications. Got to let the plaster dry before anymore updates.

The back section is built up

I have just had a idea, in my research for Crisis Point 2 I have come across many photos taken from viewpoints, especially the photos that appear on Google Earth. With this in mind I thought I would model this as a viewpoint to take lovely photos of the sun setting over Bodo (as the Soviets land yet another MRD on at Bodo airport! lol). So eventually it will have a road round the bottom, a car park and a viewpoint on top. Maybe the old emplacement could be a radio station?

More updates soon!

Coastal Gun Emplacement

Picked this up on ebay. I thought it might look good on the Bodo table for next years Crisis Point game. One problem is the flat back to the model so I am going to base it and then build the back up to represent a rocky outcrop.

Ahoy Shipmates

Just won this 1/300th scale Bremen Class Frigate on ebay. They were built between 1982 and 1990 so fit perfectly with the 1985 setting for Crisis Point 2013.

Look forward to getting started on this.

In the Bunker Again!

Been a bit busy recently but managed to get some terrain bits finished for Crisis Point 2013. Finished a few more bunkers plus a few scratch built ammo stores and underground shelters to represent abandoned WWII bunkers found throughout Norway.

Fields boundaries, there doesn't seem to be many hedges in Norway!

Some more field boundaries, lots more to do!
