I had an old Bellona vac-form base that had become damaged, and a hardboard off-cut. The vac-formed gun emplacement had lost the roof to the store room, so a new one would need scratchbuilding. I cut out the constituent parts, re-arranged them and stuck them down with PVA.
Image

I tore up newspaper strips and mixed it up with plaster of paris and water, then put it on appropriate areas of the base.
Image

I constructed an observation platform on the roof of the store room.
Image
Image
Image

It is removable.
Image

I used poster paints as an undercoat for the groundwork.
Image

Repainted the mortar
Image

the brickwork and paving
Image
Image

I had some grass mat from a model railway source and broke up the joins with static grass
Image

Lychen was added as scrub
Image
Image

I then added some pallets, oil drums and sacks c/o Ratio (model railway accessories)
Image
Image
Image
Image

The Bofors guns and figures are Airfix (apart from one or two)
Image
Image
Image
Image

Nearly there with this one
Image
Image
Image

More railway accessories for the store room
Image
Image

And some shots of the completed build.
