Command post . Part 1

Built this a couple of months ago ..
Made out of ply wood and used plaster to cover the wood for a plaster effect   ,   Scratched into the plater for the brick effect , then painted, the door and roof were made from an old fence panel,
The floor boards were made from old slats from a bed , roughed up and painted
I have the process photographed if any one is interested.
Anyway the senario is....
Operation market garden.  1944.. after an unsuccessful campaign in the Netherlands. What's left of the British army is trying to escape..
A few stragglers are held up in a bombed out farm house trying to figure an escape route...


Part 2 to follow .......
