Desert Fort

Well, I'm back from my sojourn to all parts foreign.  Suffice to say that the 6 day voyage back from St Helena to Cape Town was uneventful save for the incessant pitching of the RMS St Helena in force 7 winds and the fact that our team "The St Helena Flying Club"  nearly won the ship's general knowledge quiz.  Maybe next time.

And after having been without internet access for so long I had I've been trawling through my favourite sites looking to see what you've been up to.  Being a fan of all things Airfix I came across this interesting post at the Don't Throw Bloody Spears at Me! blog.
I had the Airfix Foreign Legion fort when I were a lad and it was nice to see it in action again.  And in homage to it here is my current version of this classic that I made in 1/300  for use with my DAK forces.  Construction materials comprised polystyrene sheets and cardboard all coated in Woodflex.

Lovely - now 'm inspired to do something similar for my 1/300 Western desert collection :)

Thanks for the comment (my first one!). Not as impressive a fortification as your Fort Sahara but at least it gives the Desert Fox somewhere to hide. Cheers.
