Scratch Built 'Redoubt'...

Well for 'The Big Gun' scenario I needed a 'redoubt' for the Russian Gorlov Gun.

Here's what I came up with complete with Russians!

It was a simple build using the below;
- Lid of a Ferrero Rocher Chocolates box
- MDF sheet
- Styrene sheet
- Matchsticks
- Flocking stuff
- Glues and paint

So I cut my trench design into the clear plastic chocolate box lid and glued it to an MDF base. Then I cut some styrene sheet to create the interior wood lining (it was scored and lightly sanded to create planks and wood grain) and where the styrene sheets met I glued matchsticks to represent the plank supports...

Once the glue was dry I applied paint and some basing materials and all done...

So the lesson here is chocolates with the right shaped box top are must after diner treats! 😉

Next Time - some new MDF buildings or the scenario details with OOBs for 'The Big Gun' scenario!
