The Coastal Battery. Again, made from bits of rubbish, celotex and army towel. Some Any Scale Models guns modified to bigger calibration and yet to be added .... barbed wire out front, crew figures and the odd vehicle. Cobbled paper from Hobby Craft.

Absolutely top notch work there, really well done with superb attention to detail..... thmbs2)
Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes in the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.

That is fantastic - it has "winner" written all over it

Mind you the chap that put up the fences on the gun battery might want to cut some gaps at the top of the stairs?
