Did some more work on the base/groundwork and added in some debris and abandoned materials from old spares boxes in the form of some old wheels,timbers etc to add to the effect and some extra detail.I also built a small wall behind this using old leftovers from tamiya brick wall sets.Some loose bricks were also added in for detail.I also added in some more high grass yet again using the bristles from decorating paintbrushes and just painted them up to blend in.I also added a sign for Berlin to the telegraph pole and will add a few more for effect before im finished,this again comes from Tamiya and their excellent roadsign set.The wires i must do next,they will be cut and hanging down.
The varnish is all dried up now and i was well pleased with the wet look effect that it gives as that was what i was looking for.I also got a darker varnish for the frame and have gave that a few coats and prob one or two more before im done.Must just add weapons and equipment to the soldiers themselves now next and small bit more dusting and weathering on the wall and debris area,so heres some more WIP pics over last few days
Debris field,wall built and more high grass added behind fence area and groundwork varnish dried up

One day I'll give it a go because a model on a dio looks great.
I also like your excellent weathering of the tile background.....that looks nearly like real algae.
Hope to finish it off tomorrow and also try and finish the field kitchen dio which kinda took second place to this one,but its just a matter of finishing that one off as well,i got the same frame for that one as well and the base is fixed to it,must finish off the figures and accessories and fix them in place then,should have both these dios with me anyhow at the meeting at the end of the month
