The fence posts are made by splitting matchsticks with a scalpel. The fence itself
is aluminium car body repair mesh
, which can
be cut to size with a good pair of scissors.
First cut a long strip of thin card. Score it down the middle and then fold it in
half to make an L-shape. This can then be cut into short lengths and glued together
in sets of 3 with super glue
the tank traps. The tank traps are painted black, then drybrush with dark silver.
Cut a piece of card to form the base, and stick on split matchsticks for fence posts.
Paint with PVA
and sprinkle with
to form the ground texture.
Base coat the sand with dark brown, drybrush with lighter brown and add patches
of flock. Finally stick on the barbed wire.
car body repair mesh as shown in the
diagram. The aim is to produce a continuous zig-zag of wire. Then fold each
length over to align with the one next to it, so that it forms a single long
barbed strand. This can then be rolled around a paintbrush handle to produce
the barbed wire coils.
The basis for hedge is the foam from blister packs. Cut this into strips and soak it with watered down black acrylic.
Once the black has dried, drybrush with a medium green and then a lighter green. Alternatively you could paint it with watered-down PVA and dip in flock.
Chunks of cork tile form the basis for the rubble, with a couple of bits of sprue.
These were stuck to a card base, painted grey, drybrushed to highlight, and then
random patches of flock were added to give the impression of overgrowing vegetation.
