Work has begun on the base for the type 16 using a picture frame with foam board core and edging. Last night the groundwork went on using plaster followed by fine sand and gravel. The model was then pressed lightly into the setting plaster before leaving it overnight to cure.
This morning VMS sand & gravel freeze was used to fix these to the base. The plan is to add long grass and shrubs to the edges of the base as well as some sort of gunnery range sign behind the model. I'll start this today and may even have it finished by this evening.
