Fire base Buddha 4

A selection of pictures showing some of the components that go into to making the fire base. The top three pictures show some of the concrete corner bunkers. On the right of the the three top pictures you can see the basic polystyrene block cut to the shape of the bunker, the black lines are my guide for the different areas of the bunker, gun slits and packed earth on top of the concrete bunker. You can see that the packed earth firing platforms on the top of the bunker, and the wall of the base have lots of PVA'd sand on them, but the concrete bunkers have much let sand stuck to them. By doing this, I hope that the painted and more importantly dry brushed items will have to look of their respective building materials. We shall see.

The bottom two pictures show a wall section which will connect the corner bunkers. The bottom picture shows the inside of the wall, with corrugated cardboard and cut art board as supports.

Next time a closer look at the sand bags.
