Built using all sorts of crap, bits of Matchbox and Esci scenic bases, various bits of walls, etc

Yes you did get some useful bits in those boxes, although some more figures or another vehicle would haven been good.

Cheers Fred.

Very clever use of leftover bits. Somewhere in the garage I have an entire box full of old Matchbox diorama bases, just crying out to be used in such a manner. :lol:

I have similar boxes in our loft, with the impending move to Spain, i`m desperately trying to get stuff some to make the move easier :D

Nice piece of work... couldn't help but try to source the parts you used...

I think I saw part of the base for the M16 (sandbagged position), walls from the hanomag base and at least one of the two pieces of broken brick wall that were on the Jagdpanther base?

The T34 had some handy pieces of sheet metal fencing iirc.

The sandbagged position in from the Chaffee :)

Most of the walls are Tamyia 1/35 scale or Britains farmyard ones........
