Smashing stuff, a little goes a long way!!. I might need sea background for my ships and country lane type stuff for the land scene. Will see what I'm getting sorted as far as scene's are concerned.

What scale are your ships Marky? If I see something useful whilst searching for backgrounds for myself I could save it for when you're ready. Same with the anti tank gun, what scale are you working in?

The ships are all 1/700, everything else is 1/72 or 1/76. Thank you for that.

6 a.m. 22 September 1940. Among the first German troops to land on British soil are 7 Fallschirmjager who capture Lympne Airfield.

(I've posted about this before, but using a pretty poor blurry photo from my old camera)

I hadn't planned it, I was thinking of a couple of separate different dios for each, but now you mention it....... :-D

Meanwhile, the 222 interior is a bit (lot) basic inside, so detailing starts with a textured floor courtesy of a clip of staples from a photocopier.

The scene that they should have had in SS GB. :-D There was a 222 in episode 2, why they didn't have it appear after the Resistance guy shot the Luftwaffe pilot, I don't know!

Something more for the SB...

The plan is to make a country scene, perhaps a narrow lane with German tanks approaching the hidden position of the gun. I might even have British and German troops involved.

Cool! Those wee Zvezda jobs look rather neat. I actually have a backdrop photo saved that could nicely set that and a panzer off. It's a pub/hotel at the fork in a road that I initially thought was too cramped for a AT v Panzer scene, but that wee popgun would need to be pretty close up to hurt a Panzer III.
I'll airbrush out any modern details and let you see it soon.

Thanks matey. I did think the gun was a little low powered to take on the tanks I have but the gun crew can be hastily putting the guns wheels on and running for it!!. :lol:

Have you ever thought of having something like a German Tank next to a red telephone box?

I have something like that in the pipeline ;-)
German troops and armour in typical Hampshire or Kent streets would make a powerful image as I hope to show.
Is your interest piqued enough to join in? :-D

Great minds eh?

I'd love to but I'm snowed under with other builds at present. :sad:
