1939/40 PROJECT
« on: September 18, 2017, 05:15:17 PM »
Six weeks in Combat Stress and between treatment a lot of hours spent in Occupational Therapy. With time and basic materials a plenty I decided to produce some of the terrain I will need for my 1940 project combining the Battle Of Britain and Op Sealion.

28mm scratch builds .

Runway for RAF Airfield. An old Army towel on card and the windsock is the small finger from a rubber glove with three hoops of wire inserted at intervals which are paper clips bent into shape.

Shot up / crashed Hurricane. This model was pulled out of the rubbish bin where someone had given up on it and thrown most of the parts away. I rebuilt it with bits of card and foil etc.

E Pen in 28mm

The bomb shelter in the middle is hollow and will take ten figures per side . Card for the tiles with a pleasing cracked  concrete affect.

Couldn't find an RAF Control Tower in 28mm scale for love nor money so decided to upscale and add sections to the Airfix model.

I am no model maker - I am a wargame always in a hurry so knocked this up in an evening. Can get figures into every level with lift off roof sections.

What's this?

The Anderson Shelter is a decoy  - as is the allotment. From the air it looks innocent enough?😇

I read up on the British Auxillaries of 1940 and also the RAF  Battle HQ and decided I wanted to combine the two to make a piece worth fighting from. Access is via the Anderson Shelter , down a funnel with hand grips to the outer chamber with loopholes with metal shutters. A very tight one man corridor to make it easier to defend and a confusing layout that has all points of aces to the inner chamber covered by fire.
