    PVA over the sculptamold and a sprinkling of fine sand, then painted with Artiste acrylics (Amazon about 1.50 for a 59ml/2 oz pot). Light drybrush with Vallejo 'Dark Sand' & some washes and pigments ( a very thin watery wash).




    Unfortunatly I didn't take many WIP pictures. Made four 'trench' sections, three with Bunkers; a mortat pit, howitzer emplacement, a couple of open ended trench pieces; a gate, an ammo storage thing and a watch tower.

    Really wonderful structures, beautifully rendered.

    Looks great! I saw Rubicon is coming out with a Sheridan which I found pretty tempting to expand into Nam.

    Ash,

    Really like the Marine Fire Base and the rest of the bunkers are very good. You doing a recreation of Khe Sanh in Vietnam?

    More fuelled by lockdown boredom than anything, I had a load of offcut of that XPS foam left over from a 20mm project, a few sheets of 3mm MDF & half a bag of sculptamold...
    I had been looking online for any 28mm US base type terrain, slim pickings and either not to my taste or very expensive, so had a go at DIY.

    Had to see if any 40k kit would fit, just took some pics of one piece with a large'ish tank thing:

    Yes Ash,

    Have to be a pretty good pilot to land the Avrus on a pad that sized.

    Great bunker by the way.

    Cheers,
