WW2 Girder Bridge WIP part 2


Sorry for lack of feed back on your blogs chaps but not had much time for the hobby lately and what time I have had, I've used to visit Partizan last Sunday and this Sunday a little more work on the bridge.

I have been working on the ramp/bridge ends, making a bunker and check point for each end.
This check point is from Wargames Foundry and I notice Warlord have released a check point set, which I will get for the other side of the bridge or my second bridge. (Would you have a check point on each end of a bridge?)
 
These are some of the goodies I purchased at Partizan last Sunday and as you can see, it is mostly connected to WW2. These are in anticipation for the release of The Too Fat Lardies Chain of Command. 


I still need to increase the height of the sandbags around the bunkers and also fix some sandbags on the roofs.

 

 
The roofs lift off for placement of that machine gun nest.




So, I need to do some more sandbags and then the painting and weathering.

Cheers,

Pat.

    1. They look like the Card used on inside of biscuit packets...the round tubes of biccys.

    3. Michael, the corrugated sheet I purchased from a model shop.
      It is labelled as Paper corrugated 500mm x 700mm, 2mm spacing and flat on reverse.
