Wasn't very succesful with finding gate photographs, so gave up, grabbed a project box and based all my Dragons Teeth that I have for D-Day and the Siegfried line, did some tests to see what worked best for me, and made 40 inches plus some corners.



When and if I can afford it, I will invest in 4 more boxes for a additional 40 inches, and make 2 gates, 2 end pieces, 1 destroyed section and 1 bulldozed section. Well, maybe double the last 2. And maybe 4 end pieces. And....

Based up the supercrappy Hasegawa tent, gave it a new front and some cosmetic updates, and it is now ready for a nice faded Khaki paintjob so it fits quite a few timeframes.

Doubling my pleasure, or my opponants annoyance.....the Siegfried Line has been expanded to 90 inches.



Also started work on a StuG III C Lang for my 1945 Germans. Cause everyone loves an old banger.

Nicely done; you can even play a modern game with that too: "Bad neighbours" (thinking about how Germans like to build walls and those nutters who built WWII tanks, etc in their basements from parts).

Started something new (of course) which is a American army for Tunisea and Scicily.

Started work on making 2x T30 halftracks




The trailer didn't fit quite as well as I had wanted....


So I trimmed the base down for a better fit.


2nd one is planned for tomorrow, then do both gunmounts at the sam time and then both gunshields at the same time, and detailing after that.

And to go off on a completely different tangent, I've started work cutting down 3 X-Wings into Z-95 Vismods for my own 20mm Sci-Fi collection. Yes, that is actually a (very niche) thing.

After a deplorable first quarter of the year....time to get back to modelling.

I received a care package from Germany which included a slightly beat up Zvesda FlaK 36. I did not bother fixing it but made it....better.



Based on this photograph

Montebourgh, Normandy, 1944

2 spare UM kits of the Ba-3. I absolutely hate vinyl tires....but these kits make perfect wrecks due to the seperate hub and wheel...

I think the 88' is probably my favourite build so far.

I hate those UM models...  especially in 1:48 here they just upscale them!

Nice work as ever :D
