Thanks mate. I enjoyed making them and adding a little more detail than I would usually.

It felt good making use of 'rubbish' items like old Army towels for the grass areas.

Echo that, lovely work.

Are you aware that Sarissa have just released some Airfield pieces? Always happens just after completion of a project, doesn't it?
Cheers,

This is a great topic - very inspiring and enjoyable. I think you said at the beginning that you are "no model maker". Wrong...!

Love the details on the underground stuff, love the hangar and the crashed Hurricane. Love it all, really. You'll have some cracking games on that.

It all looks bloody marvellous! The pranged Hurricanes are crackers. To be fair to them, I doubt that the crabs allowed their hangars to rust that much, even in wartime. There would have been some poor bugger allocated tins of paint and a brush.

By the by, neat solution for the watch room/ control tower. I had thought along the same lines. Sarissa do make one in MDF but it's pricey and the Airfix version resized looks grand.

Thanks everyone.

Yes, overdid the rust a tad but was reading that some of the airfields in use were pre war and fairly neglected and I wanted to keep some flexibility so by using the parts individually can form different looking airfields of various sizes. Another use for the Darissa cricket pavilion too!

Gotta love the Crabs though, looks are very important! Has to be slick and span - as well as comfy, bless them,😁.

Again, thanks for the feedback lads - all input taken on board.

Hadn't spotted the new Sarissa models - typical , like buses but I have to be content I have saved myself around £100 and at the time I could not find what I wanted. But,most of all I really enjoyed knocking these out. More to follow....
