heya guys!

it has been a long time since my last post. A lot of changes on my real life in these last months so i was short of free time (more than usual :haha:)

this do not mean that we have not done any works on the Panzodrom, but we have done little, mainly maintenance of the green cover

also, we have extended a bit the roads, now to the limits of the main tanking zone, these roads end abruptly, because in the future we will expand them, when the second and third zones will be dealt with ;D

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

a new three in this roadcross...

Image

Image

also we are rebuilding and reinforcing the riverbed

Image

Image

we are using Lippia Nodiflora on the hills to cover 'quickly' the ground and to minimize the effects of the heavy rains (when they fall...)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

all the green cover we have planted this year along the river's shores had helped a lot, our idea works, after heavy rains the quantity of ground cover dragged by the water to the bottom of the river has been minimized to very minimum levels

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

and then our last meeting took place past sunday, a nice sunny and warm day ;D

best regards

What a testament to all that effort. Some of the shots of the fighting poisons look real. Take them in black and white & im sure they will .
Great work , congratulations to the team

Now, if you could have a word to Lorenzo to either improve or retire while he has some dignity, that would be wonderful!!

LOL Herr Bix!

I admit that I had to look for what it is a Fleetwood Mac back catalog! :{ :haha:

thank you very much for your kind words too, mate

the material to make the camo net is simple cotton bandage, dyed and frayed to simulate an old one, I 've used the same material to do the cover of the 'beobachtunstelle'

hello guys

we have been busy these last weeks "only" doing landscaping maintenance work, this winter has been inexistent here, so the vegetation woke up in february, some in january! also the weeds, of course... @)

but this last weekend we have carried out an experimental method to stop the erosion on the 'bunker' hill, that one with all the positions on top. In other places, the hills are covered with a good and protective green cover (wild grass and lippia nodiflora), so when the heavy rains come, they do not erode the hills.

in this one, as we have been working on it, digging, trampling and so, our attempts to make the ground cover prosper have been unsuccessful, and as you can see in the pics, it's heavily eroded, with the layers of fine earth gone downhill and exposing stones.

so, our idea is: use of artificial grass and cement. Once the cement is set and hard, we will 'dye' it with earthy pigments so that it ends up looking like real earth. We will see if it works, we have still work to do in almost the 40% of the hill.

well, here you are the pics of the work already done:

Viele Danke Andy! :thumbup:

the idea is to do the outline of the trenches and the cavities of the positions with bricks and cement, so that it is easy to clean, immune to weeds and it is quick to assemble and disassemble the positions within their respective holes

hi all

I hope you are all safe and sound.

well, i've finished the 3rd 88's position for the Panzodrom, Cäsar is done. I've no more material at home to continue with the next one, and due the mobility restrictions i'm not allowed to travel to our batcave to collect nothing. So all i've at home is all the ammo and boxes for the next 3 positions, so i will have to content myself with painting all this stuff.

now the pics!

Cäsar has a little difference, or addition on the radio hut, i hope the pics are self explanatory ;D

the hut with and without the roof, so you can see it's inner details, and also the battery holder for the crew hut, that is at the other side of the screen, also note the radio antenna wire 'holder'... :haha:

a 'night' shot

and the overall views of this position

thank you Marco

yep, there are lots of little details that only the builder is aware of! :haha:

also, i have to do all six positions with similar layout but all of them must be and appear different, and this is also an added trouble...
