Great update Johan.  8)

Received a box of H0 junk today, and started salvaging. Repurposed a Diesel tank as a tank for a used and abused Water tanker.





Once all of the glue has set I will rough it up properly and add a tap to the back. Bit of a fantasy model, but will work fine in a  UN convoy, Afghanistan, Afrika, or Post Apoc I guess....once painted.

The anti Partisan L3/33 is almost ready for paint, just need to find the bloody bucket. Cut a AB fig in half for a commnander. The fig cost me more then the tank!

Also based up my entire YW-531 collection for the Iraqi army (that is what you see in the back of the pic)

Received in the mail, with a considerable detour, 2 boxes of S-Models R35 light tanks. I now have 5 of those in total, 2 will be grey, 2 will be in Dunkelgelb and one a burnt out wreck, and all of these will fight the US Paratroops in Normandy.

Still not feeling like painting anything, but did invite the guys over today for hobby and dinner, and at the end of the day I have my first 95cm's of metal sheet fencing.




Just scraps of plasticcard, matches and cardboard. Need to sand the bases, grit them, and a file a small groove in the top of the poles so I can glue on some barbed wire for good measure. Seeing how little 95cm's is on the table, I've decided to spend the rest of the weeks evenings with the radio on and just churning out fence and writing down a tutorial as well. After that I'll get cracking on producing a variety of gates for various purposes so this will fit in afrikca, the Middle East, Vietnam, Russia and everywhere else I want to pick a fight.

Hot damn (makes me realise Middle East walls are easy as hell to knock up - but I'm tempted to try something for my European terrain).

Some minor warping issues this week but that just adds character  lol



Almost 4 metres now. The goal is 6 metres but I'm pretty sure I'm going to top that. Want to do some more corners etc this week

I can see this really useful for the backyard chase scenes games. Only movie coming to mind that does this is 'Shaun of the Dead' though lol

Shitty week became Hell week, but I still pressed on, almost at the 5 metre mark now.

Thx Vodkafan :)

Added 8 T sections to the lot, adding another 120cm of fence, which brings the total up to just shy of 6 metres.



And it all fits nicely into one of my designated 20mm scenery drawers... Mind you, 6 metres of the stuff doesn't look like much.



Next up, doors, big doors, signs and more 10cm short straight sections.
