About the Project

A couple of years ago the Squadron got involved in a ww2 wargame at armed forces day, when asked recently if there was anything new they'd like to do of a parade night someone suggested wargames. As such I'm building a couple of forces to introduce them to the game hopefully extending to a full blown campaign.

scratch building houses, cardboard supplied by the local book shop, sealing it with PVA.scratch building houses, cardboard supplied by the local book shop, sealing it with PVA.

Currently mass producing buildings from cardboard, the plan is to create flat pack able buildings that can be stored easier and easily transported, to this end cardboard is being cut with guillotines, covered in PVA, once dry holes are punched through for pegs (cocktail sticks)  and any windows etc cut out.

next will be using superglue to reinforce the edge’s and to secure the pegs into the edges of the board

whilst painting on the sprue may seem like anathema for most it’s the safest way to move models around various modelling spaces and still make progress without loosing small details (airfix 1/72 kits I’m cursing you still)

The Band of Brothers box set seemed like an ideal starting point, they’re all painted and shaded, just need a matt cote and basing now.
