If anyone is interested, This is the start of my new dio, The Atlantik Wall.

The base measures 26" x 26" and is raised 3".

It comprises of the Great North Roads Sea Defence Bunker, Plus Model Flak Bunk and Turret Bunker.

There is a Pak 43 artillery piece inside the GNR base, an AFV spotlight, and Tamiya 20mm flak 38 on the Plus Models Flak Bunker.

Both buildings will be jammed pack full of ammo box's, crates etc.

Will also be plenty of figures, which are yet to be chosen.

Nice Glen, it certainly looks like it will be busy once all the other bits are added.
I recently picked up the Trumpeter Flak 38 to add to the Trupeter low freight wagon I picked up the other day, any thoughts on how good/bad that kit is compared to the Tamiya version?

Regardless, I thought the Flak 38 would look good being pushed in front of the BR 52 or BR 86 fo a bit of AA protection......

Cheers

Tony

Thanks guys, have done a lot since these were taken. Will post some more tomorrow if I can.

Havent used theTrumpy flaks yet as i have a heap of Tamiya and Dragon ones here, but will have to give it a go.

Highly reccomend using Voyager or JB Barrels though. Voyager are loking into doing a complete etch set for he tamiya set.

Yo could mount a flak on the top of the coal box.

Generally the locos had the panzerjagerwagen out front, so grab one of those.

So I have now worked in the well troden on paths, the cliff face, rocks, flak bunker and turret bunker, along with the walk wayshave been glued in place.

Buildings have had weathering begun, with more to come. Found another lak gun that i was looking at putting in, and there will be an MG42 nest on stand with the other rocks at the front.

There has been some muddy water added between the wall, walkway and buildings, as well as around the base.

I found some german soilders in the stash with german sheperds, which i think will be walking in front of the sea defence bunker towards the mg nest.

The edges of the base have now been covered in 3mm black perspex.
