This is fantastic! What a project! What did you paint the pill box with? It really looks like the concrete the real ones are made from!

I really love all the poses on the bridge, and the soldier about to lob a grenade into the pill box! I'm surprised there's no poor soldiers face down in the water but I guess you wouldn't want to ruin any uniforms or figures!  lol!

Plasti-Kote stone effect spray paint. It's an expensive way of doing it as it cost £6 a can and I used 2 cans on each pillbox.

Wrong Bridge for him. This is Pegasus on D-Day not Arnham (A Bridge too far). Could have had Tally Ho's Lord Lovett and piper though  Very Happy

One thing though I didn't use a spray booth so everything else in the Garage has flecks of stone paint over them, plastic racking, drill stand, BBQ, Action Man vehicles the cat only escaped as she ran out when she heard the spray hiss.  Rolling Eyes
