As I had to slow down everything over the last weeks I will give you an update
about what should get finished after Thanksgiving.
My next diorama will show two of my favorites: tanks and bunker!
I found an old printout from an internet page where they described Belgian
bunkers. Yes they had bunkers too. Not that much likes the French with their
Maginot Line or the Germans with the Westwall or later with the Atlantic Wall.
Besides the fortification of Eben Emael they had bunkers at the most
bridges and railways on the border to Germany.
So I sketched one of these bunkers with two heavy MGs. The bunker is
out of one piece of foam. The landscape is done with gypsum.
I made a mould so that I can use it several times.

lot of tea, I do not have problems with the supply chain.
More as soon as I have decided which tank will be on the road to
So here some pictures of the unfinished diorama:
