Progress on Fire Base Buddha, I sketched out the outline of the base on a piece of white card. With the sleeping Buddha positioned in the middle, I've done minimal research into Fire bases, just a quick search on google images and a look at the cover of the Osprey book on Special Forces camps, and what I remember of watching the Green Berets, in-fact thinking about the title of this post, it should be Camp Buddha really, ho hum.
I've done the cheap purchase, getting the Buddha for 99p. The next purchase come in a bit more expensive, £270 for some really bad ass polystyrene, it did however come rapped around a new Bosch dish washer.
But back to the polystyrene, it is very very dense and can be carved with a sharp blade. Great stuff for building terrain with, some of the polystyrene was just the right shape to use as the walls and the was lots left over for the bunkers and the central rock outcrop which the buddha will sit on.
Right off to get some free coffee sticks from the local coffee shops.
