Since the stone structures serve as a testing ground for weatherproof glues, the glue manufacturers should provide financial support for the club grounds. :lolno: The next step is to get in the electric RC aircraft for bombing and strafing runs with plastic bombs and plastic BBs. Egad! Then there could be AA guns to fire plastic BBs. Oh, do I have the ideas! :haha:

The whole farm/castle complex area of the field is finally finished. The whole surrounding cliff area was switched out from random round stones to a singular type of stone face, Castle stones were weather sealed which also darkened the stones. Looks better imo. Some final shots. The one image gives a ground view which shows how effectively the trees etc. can cover your tank from an opponents IR beam. On battle days other structures and items like ATG guns. half tracks etc, are placed out in the area

LOL. The KW Flying Dutchmen RC plane group has their airfield 80m from our tank field. Aircraft can be done... But does anyone actually make a 1/16 scale RC plane?

Yeah, they do have a few 1/16 scale airplanes to include helicopters. I think most of the 1/16th stuff is 3D printed.

Too many project builds to list...

These are pretty well the final locations for the structures on the field this year. The 6 images from all the angles give you an idea of what we are looking at when we battle as no one is allowed on the actual field during a battle.
