OK - so I may be wrong, but I think today's update is the first, finished bit of "proper" Cold War scenery or terrain that I have done. And I'm pretty chuffed with it.
Recently I managed to grab this model quite cheaply:
Obviously I didn't want to use it as a Quickee Supermarket (a little to Simpsons for me) and on Andy's excellent blog Cold War Gamer he had built from scratch (as shown in the link) a fantastic Lidl Supermarket. He's also a lot more knowledgible about the period than I am - so if Lidl was good enough for Andy - it was good enough for me. Aldi is the only other German supermarket I'm aware of - and I don't know if their current logo was around in the eighties - another reason to go with Lidl.
I made the kit and then decided to make a base (very unlike me). The base was made with 2 peices of MDF and I used a couple of different sets of paper products from Small Scale Scenes to do the car park and pavements.
I also finished a peice of my road here to put across the front of the scene.
So onto the photos - first up a pre-war (or exercise) scene:
Now some shots of a hastily erected Battalion CP - and I imagine it will depart pretty hastily as well...
And now another temporary spot - for a GR.3 Harrier
That's it. Next up will be some more terrain.
Thanks and have fun
